Super Bowl 50 Awarded to Santa Clara; 51 Goes to Houston

Sites for Super Bowls in 2016 and 2017 are set.  NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement for the host city for Super Bowl 50 in 2016. 

After losing out on its bid to host Super Bowl 50, Miami then became a finalist with Houston for the right to host Super Bowl 51 in 2017.  Goodell announced that that game will be played in Texas. 

Super Bowl 50 will be played at the San Francisco 49ers' new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.  It will be the first Super Bowl in California since San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium hosted the game in 2003, and the first in Northern California since Stanford Stadium hosted Super Bowl 19 in 1985.  Super Bowl 51 will be at Houston's Reliant Stadium, which last hosted in 2004.
