The NFL made three big decisions Tuesday regarding where to hold the Super Bowls from 2019 through 2021 and they are all taking place in new or renovated stadiums.
With the Atlanta Falcons’ new stadium set to open in June 2017, they will have 20 months to prepare for Super Bowl LIII. And it’s easy to understand why they landed the big game. Their new stadium is basically an origami wet dream.

The following year, the Miami Dolphins will play host (again) at their stadium that’s already held five separate Super Bowls. In 2016, the venue formerly known as Sun Life Stadium (now just New Miami Stadium) will complete a massive two-year upgrade that includes a large canopy and new seats for rich people (let’s face it, that’s why they got Super Bowl LIV).

And finally, in perhaps the least surprising decision, the Los Angeles Rams will host Super Bowl LV at City of Champions Stadium in 2021, which is set to break ground on August 1 of this year. The $2.66 billion project is expected to take three years to complete, but will provide a massive media hub in the center of the nation’s second-largest city.

The capacity at the Inglewood stadium will be 70,000, but can be expanded to anywhere between 80,000 to 100,000 for big events. That’s going to be one hell of a Super Bowl.
