Owners now expected to vote this afternoon on shifting Super Bowl LV from LA to Tampa, per source. Sounds like vote will happen and pass.

I feel that not having SB LV in Las Vegas may or may not be the biggest blunder in NFL history.

Yeah, maybe not the biggest, but it is pretty damn stupid.

League rules prohibit a stadium from hosting a SB in its opening season. The Raiders stadium also opens in 2020. That's why they are having this vote.

I think the great reception the area and stadium got from the College Football Championship played a role in deciding to move the Superbowl. Apparently the league could've signed a waiver to allow the LA Stadium to host the game.

Eh, they just pushed their hosting by a year(They'll host SB LVI now). It's smart because if there's another delay, they won't have to scramble to put it in another stadium

I think Houlihan's Stadium will be a great venue for a Super Bowl.

Go Bucs!

I had honestly forgotten that Houlihan's stadium was ever thing. I don't think I know anyone who even used the term.

DONE!!

At today’s NFL Fall League Meeting in New York City, NFL owners officially awarded Super Bowl LV in 2021 to Tampa. In May, it was announced that Tampa had been offered the Super Bowl on the condition that the city meet certain requirements related to its bid. With today’s announcement, the city now turns its focus to preparing to host the league’s premier event for the fifth time.

“The final approval of Super Bowl LV is a great source of pride for the Glazer family, the Buccaneers organization and the entire Tampa Bay region," Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer said. "We have made substantial improvements in recent years to ensure that Raymond James Stadium could ultimately host the game for a third time and we appreciate that our fellow owners have recognized the stadium and our area’s long and distinguished history as a world-class host city.”

Tampa - which trails only Miami, New Orleans and Los Angeles in the total number of Super Bowls hosted - has been the site of the game in 1984, 1991, 2001 and 2009. This year’s Super Bowl will be held in Minnesota, followed by Atlanta, Miami and, ultimately, Tampa.

Tampa hosted the College Football National Championship game this past January. Raymond James Stadium is in the midst of a four-phase, $150 million renovation that will be completed by the start of the 2018 NFL season.

First time I ever sat in that stadium was in 1974. Plant vs Hillsborough for their annual (at the time) Turkey Day Game.

November 2nd, 1986. We beat the Bills, I think that was our only win at home that year? Earliest clear memory I have.

Earliest memory I have of going to a Bucs game was preseason, the first year, when we almost beat Miami with nothing but field goals.... Lost 21-18
