Super Bowl 50 is in the books, but where will Super Bowl 51 take place?
Now that Super Bowl 50 is in the books, the journey to Super Bowl 51 has just begun. Will we see the Broncos or Panthers repeat as representatives of their conferences or will a new team emerge to try and bring home glory?
Aside from who will play in Super Bowl 51, the other question on everyone’s mind is where the Super Bowl will be played next year? San Francisco was the host city this year but the big game will be moving southeast for the 2016 season.
Houston will be playing host to Super Bowl 51, as NRG Stadium is going to be the site of next year’s big game. This is despite the fact that Houston rejected an LGBT law that would protect the LGBT community from discrimination. Texans owner Bob McNair even donated $10,000 to the anti-LGBT cause, but the NFL didn’t waver on allowing Houston to host next year’s Super Bowl.
So where and when will Super Bowl 51 take place? We have all the information you need to know right here so you’re ready well ahead of time:
