Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., was officially approved as the site of Super Bowl LX on Feb. 8, 2026 on Monday.

The announcement was made during the NFL Spring League Meeting in Minneapolis.

This will mark the second Super Bowl in Santa Clara and the third in the San Francisco Bay Area. Levi’s Stadium hosted Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7, 2016, while Stanford Stadium was the site of Super Bowl XIX on Jan. 20, 1985.

“The Bay Area was an incredible host for Super Bowl 50, and we are thrilled to bring the Super Bowl back,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “We look forward to working with the 49ers and the Bay Area Host Committee to create an impactful Super Bowl LX in 2026 that showcases all the great things the region has to offer.”‘

Levi’s Stadium is home to the San Francisco 49ers.

According to an independent study in 2016, the event generated nearly $250 million for the Bay Area economy.

“We are honored to host the Super Bowl at Levi’s Stadium once again, and to be stewards of one of the biggest sporting events in the world,” 49ers president Al Guido said in a news release. “Since hosting Super Bowl 50 in 2016, Levi’s Stadium has cemented its reputation as a world-class venue. I’m confident Super Bowl LX will be a terrific event that benefits the entire community.”

Las Vegas is host of the 2024 (2023 season) Super Bowl and New Orleans is the 2025 site.
