Today the National Football League (NFL) revealed the official game day date for Super Bowl L, which will be played at Levi's® Stadium in Santa Clara on Sunday, February 7, 2016.
"Santa Clara is proud to host the Super Bowl's golden anniversary game in the Golden State," said Santa Clara Mayor Jamie Matthews. "Around the world, all eyes will be focused on our city and the Bay Area on February 7, 2016, so we are excited to showcase our region's beauty, culture and innovative spirit."
The Super Bowl is annually the most-watched television program in the United States, with an average audience of more than 100 million viewers, as well as one of the most-watched events worldwide.
"We're looking forward to game day and having a global spotlight on Santa Clara and our beautiful new stadium," says Steve Van Dorn, President & CEO of the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention-Visitors Bureau. "We expect our Santa Clara businesses, including hotels, restaurants, and shops to be overflowing Super Bowl week."
In addition to the game in Santa Clara, the Super Bowl L experience will include a weeklong series of public events and celebration events leading up to Super Bowl Sunday in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area.
"Now the entire region can circle the date on our calendars and work together to produce a spectacular, efficient and safe Super Bowl experience," said Keith Bruce, CEO of the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl Host Committee. "We are excited for what lies ahead in the coming months as our planning begins in earnest."
