On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Super Bowl Committee wasted no time in the wake of the big game hosted by Tampa Bay to release the official logo of the unit planning next year’s championship along with their slogan “Champions Shine Here.”
Next year’s Super Bowl will be the first hosted by the city since 1993 when the Rose Bowl played host in Pasadena, California. For those of you who don’t know, L.A. actually hosted the very first Super Bowl back in 1967 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Rapper Snoop Dogg also had the honor of narrating the launch video for the campaign, unsurprisingly playing on the immense star power stemming from home-grown stars.
“Today more than ever the Super Bowl stands for hope and perseverance,” said Casey Wasserman, Chairman, Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee. “We are proud and excited that Los Angeles will once again host the nation’s biggest sporting event, however it’s the promise of recovery and opportunity that Super Bowl LVI brings to our City’s people and industries that reigns supreme.”
Unlike most cities that are called home by NFL teams, this year’s Super Bowl will have two teams vying for the chance to follow in the footsteps of the Bucs to become just the second team in league history to play in championship game at their home stadium.
As things stand right now, the football in Los Angeles in 2021 is setting up to be some of the best the city has seen since both teams arrived in 2016 and 2017.
