Super Bowl NFL 2022: Cowboys stadium named as possible alternative for the big game

0

It’s no secret that Jerry Jones would love to host another Super Bowl, as the Dallas Cowboys owner has already made an offer to land another as soon as possible. There is a slim chance he will achieve his wish as early as 2022, with the NFL reaching out to Jones to determine if AT&T Stadium and the surrounding city of Arlington, Texas would be available to serve as an alternate site for the originally planned host. for Super Bowl LVI – SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles – by Mike Leslie of WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas.

As it stands, this year’s Super Bowl is set for Sunday, February 13 and neither the date nor the location has been moved, and it looks like the league’s front office is just doing their due diligence. following the last peak in progress Covid19 pandemic.

So, as the City of Arlington – which reportedly contacted the NFL proactively in December to become a replacement – and Jones gave the NFL the go-ahead to descend to North Texas if necessary, the league wants to make it clear that ‘she I’m not planning a change, but rather preparing for the possibility that they need it.

And Jones wasn’t the only owner they contacted.

“We plan to play Super Bowl LVI as scheduled at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 13,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said. “As part of our standard contingency planning process that we conduct for all regular and playoff games, we have contacted several clubs to inquire about stadium availability in case we cannot play the Super Bowl as planned. due to weather issues or unforeseen circumstances.

“Our planning process for the Super Bowl in Los Angeles is ahead of schedule and we look forward to hosting the Super Bowl there to culminate another fantastic NFL season for our fans and our clubs.”

AT&T Stadium is a multi-billion dollar facility that, at full capacity, can accommodate over 100,000 fans.

Jones is also beating the drums to have the Cowboys facility used for an upcoming NFL combine as soon as possible, in hopes of using the luxury equipment and facilities as a means of wooing the league. It seems inevitable that he’ll get his wish for the Combine and another Super Bowl in the future – having hosted the latter a little over a decade ago in 2011 – but neither of them come together. will produce in 2022. That is, of course, something completely wrong with the ability to accommodate the largest, even in sports, at the newly built SoFi stadium (eg, COVID).

Right now, the only way the Cowboys can get involved in Super Bowl LVI is through a thorough playoff run. However, if they do achieve that goal and the Super Bowl moves to AT&T Stadium, it will only be the second time in NFL history that a stadium hosting the game was also home to one of its participants; just a year after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers achieved the feat.
