If all goes right on the football field, when Super Bowl LVI kicks off in Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium on Feb. 13, 2022, then either the Los Angeles Rams or Chargers—or both!—could be in pads on their home turf. With the two teams playing well, the opportunity exists for the city to claim its first Lombardi Trophy since the L.A. Raiders captured the championship in 1984.
If things go well off the field, the impact could be even bigger and longer-lasting.
According to a new report, the NFL’s title game could generate up to $477 million in local spending, with tourist and corporate dollars going to everything from hotel rooms to parties to restaurants to treks in taxis and rideshare services.
