The NFL announced on Tuesday the host cities for Super Bowl's LIII, LIV and LV. Atlanta will host the game in 2019, Miami in 2020 and Los Angeles in 2021, meaning three of the next five Super Bowl's will be in brand new stadiums with the 2018 Super Bowl being hosted at the Vikings new US Bank Stadium.
There was no surprise that LA was selected as one of the host cities as the new Rams stadium will make for an incredible game day experience and will be a focal point for the NFL itself. It will be the first time since 1993 that the Los Angeles area will play host to the Super Bowl and is a just reward for the Rams ambition and vision going forward.
"They had Super Bowls there regularly before there was no team, so with our new stadium and project, it will be unbelievable," Rams owner Stan Kroenke said.

Atlanta's revolutionary Mercedes Benz Stadium will host the event in 2019 and it was revealed they beat out New Orleans because of the new stadium's construction. It opens in 2017 and will feature a one of a kind 360 degree HD video halo board which will be the largest video board in the world and be visible from every seat offering game action and other media content.
"We think Mercedes-Benz Stadium is a great host stadium for the Super Bowl," Falcons owner Arthur Blank said. "Thank you to all fans and citizens for their support."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones shared this sentiment saying "Atlanta has been so supportive of not just the Falcons, but the NFL,'' Jones said. "They are deserving of having this Super Bowl. Obviously it's a great stadium; a state-of-the-art stadium. But it's the entire aggregation with what's happened with the College Hall of Fame, and that whole picture down there is just something that not only Atlanta is proud of, but I'm proud of. It was a big deal to this ownership for Atlanta to have this Super Bowl.''
The New Miami Stadium in South Florida will play host to Super Bowl LIV in 2020, the first time since 2006 that the city will host the greatest show on earth. The Dolphins renovations to their stadium over the past few years has paid dividends and they beat out Tampa as hosts.

"It's going to be great for Miami. It's great for the Miami Dolphins," Ross said. "And we are only going to feel better when we're playing in the game."
Three fantastic locations for the Super Bowl were confirmed and the lineup of host cities for the next five games looks full of variety and excitement with some incredible new stadiums to look forward to.
