The Rams and Chargers’ home stadium, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, will host this year’s Super Bowl, the first in Los Angeles in 29 years. As a result of the recent outbreak of COVID in southern California, the league has taken precautionary measures.
To counteract concerns regarding the possible impact of COVID, NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy stated that the league is continually looking into alternative arrangements for the Super Bowl.
McCarthy told WFAA that the team intends to participate in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, Feb. 13, at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, as scheduled and bringing the NFL season to a close for the fans and teams.
The league contingency planning procedures for all regular and playoff games include contacting numerous clubs to inquire about stadium availability.
Last month, Arlington municipal officials contacted the NFL to let them know that the city was prepared to host the Super Bowl if required.
