When the NFL choose the future Super Bowl Locations for upcoming seasons, the NFL also has rules that requires a stadium to have been open two full seasons before it can host a Super Bowl, so a change needed to be made when construction delays meant the Rams and Chargers wouldn’t be able to play in their new stadium until 2020.
Rather than Super Bowl 55 in 2021 as originally planned, the big game will return to LA for Super Bowl 56 in 2022. It will mark the eighth time the LA area has hosted the Super Bowl, with the LA Memorial Coliseum having hosted two Super Bowls and the Rose Bowl having hosted five.
The venue, currently being built in Inglewood, is expected to be a masterpiece, in part because it will be more than a stadium, as its name — LA Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park — suggests.
The open-air stadium will seat 70,000 people with the ability to expand to seat up to 100,000.
In addition to the Super Bowl in 2022, the stadium is scheduled to host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2028 Summer Olympics.
