The San Francisco 49ers’ stadium last hosted the championship game in 2016, when the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10.
“The Bay Area was an incredible host for Super Bowl 50, and we are thrilled to bring the Super Bowl back,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “We look forward to working with the 49ers and the Bay Area Host Committee to create an impactful Super Bowl LX in 2026 that showcases all the great things the region has to offer.”

The announcement drew major reactions from fan of the sport on social media. Some fans criticized the decision, with one fan saying, “One of the worst new stadiums in the league. The Stadium literally sits in a blackhole of Santa Clara.” Another fan said “Gross. Can’t imagine what that city will look like in ’26. Dystopian Bowl”
The Super Bowl, which was also played in Stanford Stadium in 1985, will be the third to be held in the Bay Area. In Super Bowl XIX, the San Francisco 49ers triumphed over the Miami Dolphins.
Before the match, the stadium will receive major renovations. In order to upgrade the stadium’s suites and video boards, the NFL is anticipated to lend the San Francisco 49ers $120 million. Following the Super Bowl in the summer of that year, Levi’s Stadium will also host World Cup games.
