(CTN News) – The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers have confirmed their attendance at Super Bowl LVIII.
The 2023 Super Bowl will occur at Allegiant Stadium, the Las Vegas Raiders home. This is the first time Las Vegas and the entire state of Nevada have hosted the Super Bowl.
New Orleans was originally planned to host the games, but the decision was made in 2018. In March 2020, the league and NFLPA agreed to expand the regular season from 16 to 17 games and 18 weeks starting in 2021.
As a result, the Super Bowl was shifted one week into February. Super Bowl LVIII will occur on February 11, 2024, which conflicts with New Orleans’ Mardi Gras traditions.
In October 2020, the league announced that New Orleans would be given Super Bowl LIX. In December 2021, they announced that Las Vegas would host Super Bowl LVIII.
Allegiant Stadium, located on Al Davis Way on the Las Vegas Strip, began building in 2017 and will open in 2020. The closed space spans 10 levels and can accommodate up to 65,000 people. It is the second-most costly stadium in the world, costing $1.9 billion to construct.
One feature distinguishing Allegiant Stadium is the 92-foot Al Davis Memorial Torch, which honours the former Raiders owner. At its creation, the torch was the world’s largest 3D-printed building.
Fans attending the Super Bowl will have plenty of huge screens to look at. The stadium features approximately 2,300 televisions and 75,000 square feet of video boards.
