NFL owners are expected to award Super Bowl LX in 2026 to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., according to a Sports Business Journal report on Thursday.

The owners’ spring meeting is slated for May 22-24 in Minneapolis, where they will vote on the site of the 60th Super Bowl game for February 2026 and televised on NBC.

Levi’s Stadium, which opened in 2014 as a replacement for Candlestick Park as the San Francisco 49ers’ home stadium, hosted Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7, 2016, when the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10.

The 49ers have been seeking funds from the league for upgrades to the stadium to host the Super Bowl. Levi’s Stadium also is one of 11 NFL venues hosting 2026 World Cup soccer games in the summer of 2026, when the United States, Canada and Mexico will serve as co-host countries.

The Los Angeles Rams said in April that they would like to host Super Bowl LXI in early 2027 at SoFi Stadium.

The Las Vegas Raiders will host next season’s game at Allegiant Stadium, and New Orleans will welcome back the Super Bowl in 2025 after not hosting since 2013 at the Superdome.
