NFL Owners Award Super Bowl L to Bay Area

Matt Maiocco, writing for

The Super Bowl’s golden year will feature a return to the Golden State – the Bay Area won its bid to host Super Bowl 50 in a vote of NFL owners on Tuesday.

The Super Bowl, scheduled for February 7, 2016, will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, which will become the new home of the 49ers in 2014 after one final season at Candlestick Park.

Great news. The Bay Area is a great backdrop to the Super Bowl.

I’ve never been to a football game. Maybe I should get to Candlestick for a Niners game this year before the team moves into the new stadium.
