Los Angeles plans for 2016 Superbowl

The 2016 Super Bowl could be played right here in Los Angeles as a result of the city’s plan to build an NFL stadium next to the Staples Center that would open in time for the 2015 football season.

Though the NFL has requirements that a venue be operating for at least a year before being eligible to host the Super Bowl, AEG has asked that an exception be made because the first-ever Super Bowl took place at the L.A. Coliseum and the 2016 Bowl would mark its 50th Anniversary.

That particular arena would hold a dual purpose: Sports venue and convention space.

The plan for the stadium include potentially hosting the 2020 World Cup, the NCAA Final Four, and even has hopes of bringing an NFL team back to Los Angeles.

Though nothing has been finalized the $1-billion stadium could be completed by 2015, AEG president Tim Leiweke told the Los Angeles Times.

“We’re asking [the NFL] to look at our track record, the uniqueness of that anniversary, and the place that this city played in hosting Super Bowls,” Leiweke said.
