NFL officially sets future draft and Super Bowl locations

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

In a matter of 10 minutes, three important dates in the NFL’s future officially added a location to the calendar. The hosts of the 2019 draft and both the 2023 and 2024 Super Bowls have been announced.

The Tennessee Titans confirmed Nashville will serve as the host city for next year’s draft. It will be the first time the event has been held in Tennessee.

The Arizona Cardinals will host Super Bowl LVII in 2023, bringing the championship game back to University of Phoenix Stadium for the first time since 2015.

Lastly, Super Bowl LVIII will be kicked off inside the home of the New Orleans Saints. The most recent championship game happened at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the league’s most-used Super Bowl location, in 2013.

Given the previous success in Glendale and New Orleans, the Super Bowls are expected to thrive. Nashville is a new location, but it’s a blossoming sports town that should also be a terrific host.
