NFL Evaluates AT&T Stadium as Potential Backup Site for Super Bowl LVI

NFL officials are evaluating AT&T Stadium in Arlington as a possible replacement site for Super Bowl LVI, slated for February 13 in Los Angeles. The current COVID-19 situation in California is forcing NFL officials to consider backup plans just in case.

The availability of the AT&T stadium is one of the sites the league has explored to develop its contingency plan, sources said. It’s part of the due diligence the league does every year and there hasn’t been any detailed discussion of moving the event.

“We plan to play Super Bowl LVI as scheduled at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday February 13,” an NFL spokesperson said in a statement. “As part of our standard contingency planning process that we conduct for all regular and playoff games, we have contacted several clubs to inquire about stadium availability in case we cannot play the Super Bowl as planned. due to weather issues or unforeseen circumstances. Our planning process for the Super Bowl in Los Angeles is ahead of schedule and we look forward to hosting the Super Bowl there to culminate another fantastic NFL season for our fans and clubs.
