The NFL has confirmed they are seeking alternative stadium sites for next month’s Super Bowl slated for Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told WFAA that the NFL indeed has looked into backup venues for this year’s Super Bowl — as, he says, it does every year.
“We plan on playing Super Bowl LVI as scheduled at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 13,” McCarthy said. “As part of our standard contingency planning process that we conduct for all regular and postseason games, we have contacted several clubs to inquire about stadium availability in the event we cannot play the Super Bowl as scheduled due to weather-related issues or unforeseen circumstances. Our planning process for the Super Bowl in Los Angeles is ahead of schedule and we look forward to hosting the Super Bowl there to culminate another fantastic NFL season for our fans and clubs.”
