The NFL train keeps on rolling. We may have just seen the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in an overtime epic, but the eyes of the league have already moved on. Those eyes are focused on the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, which will be the site of Super Bowl LIX on Sunday, February 9, 2025.
While Super Bowl LVIII was the first ever held in Las Vegas, New Orleans has done this Super Bowl hosting gig a time or two. The NFL’s showpiece game was last held in NOLA in 2013, and the 2025 Super Bowl will see the Big Easy tie Miami for most Super Bowls hosted all time with 11 each.
New Orleans was originally scheduled to host the 2024 Super Bowl. This was switched to Sin City when the NFL implemented an 18-week regular season in 2021, as the Super Bowl date would have clashed with New Orleans’ famous Mardi Gras celebrations. Mardi Gras doesn’t fall until early March 2025, giving the city plenty of time to host both events.
The question for Super Bowl LIX is whether the Kansas City Chiefs can make NFL history. The Chiefs are back-to-back Super Bowl Champions, becoming the seventh team in history (the Steelers did it twice) to defend their Lombardi Trophy and the first since the Patriots of the mid-2000s. No team has ever gone back-to-back-to-back, but with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback and head coach Andy Reid returning for another year, they will be one of the favorites to be the last team standing at the end of the 2024 season.
