Super Bowl stays in California despite covid-19 wave, NFL officials say

NFL officials and Super Bowl LVI organizers claim the showpiece will not be moved, despite a covid-19 wave in California.

A spate of Covid-19 cases across the state, and the prospect of further health measures being introduced in response, had fueled speculation that the Super Bowl could be moved to the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, which reportedly was examined as a backup. up site of the NFL.

At a media event held at the stadium exactly one month before the end of the NFL season, both the NFL and Super Bowl organizers were quick to quell fears that such a move was imminent. .

“All of our plans for Super Bowl week will remain in full effect for a month from today,” said the NFL’s senior director of events activities, Katie Keenan.

“We’re working with everyone here, and with the LA County Health Department, to make sure all of our events are kept safe.”
