The NFL will be heading South for the Super Bowl in 2019 and 2020.

The four cities bidding to host the country's biggest sporting event of the year in 2019 and 2020 will be New Orleans, Atlanta, Miami and Tampa Bay. The host cities will likely be voted upon during the league owners meetings in May 2016.

Atlanta hasn't hosted the NFL's championship game since 2000. The Falcons will have a new $1.5 billion stadium in 2017 that will make it likelier for them to host one of the two Super Bowls. The NFL usually rewards cities getting new stadiums with Super Bowls. That includes San Francisco next year and Minneapolis the following year; the 49ers just got a new stadium and the Vikings will have a new stadium in 2016.

Miami looks to host its 11th Super Bowl, which is tied with New Orleans for the most that one city has hosted. Tampa is bidding for its fifth Super Bowl and its first since 2009.
