The 50th Super Bowl will be held in the San Francisco Bay Area.
NFL owners voted Tuesday for the 49ers' new stadium as host of the 2016 game. That facility in Santa Clara, Calif., is due to open for the 2014 season.
Dallas, Indianapolis and Arizona have all hosted Super Bowls in their new stadiums. Next year, New York will.
These picks make it obvious that the NFL is awarding cities that build new stadiums.
The next Super Bowl up for grabs is in 2018.
In Feb. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak told KSTP he will pursue the big game for that year.
