San Francisco, Houston Chosen To Host Super Bowls

USA TODAY Sports

San Francisco and Houston were awarded hosting rights to Super Bowl L and Super Bowl LI.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced on Tuesday that San Francisco will host Super Bowl L while Houston will host Super Bowl LI, according to ESPN.

San Francisco was selected over Miami to host the league's 50th Super Bowl as their new stadium in Santa Clara is scheduled to be open for the 2014 season. Super Bowl L wouldn't be played until 2016.

"The Bay Area has been waiting for a [title] game since 1985. We have a stadium now ... we are just thrilled and couldn't be happier about this," said Daniel Lurie, a leader of the San Francisco bid.

"We are going to get to highlight the best the Bay Area has to offer."

The Dolphins didn't receive public money for stadium upgrades, which compromised their Super Bowl bid. They have hosted 10 Super Bowls, though, which ties them with New Orleans for the most.

The Super Bowl that wraps up the 2013 season will be played in East Rutherford, New Jersey at MetLife Stadium and will be an outdoor, cold-weather game. The Super Bowl to decide the champion of the 2014 season will be played in Glendale, Arizona at University of Phoenix Stadium, the home of the Cardinals.

Cincinnati has yet to host a Super Bowl and isn't likely to do so any time soon.
