Super Bowl LVIII is the upcoming championship game of the National Football League (NFL) for the 2023 season. It is the 58th Super Bowl and is set to take place on February 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada. This will be the third consecutive year that the Super Bowl will be played in the Western United States.
It will be the first Super Bowl hosted in Nevada and the Las Vegas Valley area. The game will be broadcast nationally by CBS.
On May 23, 2018, the league initially chose New Orleans as the site for Super Bowl LVIII. The game, along with Super Bowl LVII, was part of a new selection process introduced by the league for Super Bowl LVI. In the previous process, cities submitted bids to host a Super Bowl, which were then deliberated and voted upon at the league owners’ meetings. The new process no longer involves bidding; instead, the league chooses potential host candidates.
In March 2020, the league and the NFLPA agreed to expand the regular season from 16 to 17 games starting in 2021, resulting in Super Bowl LVIII being moved to February 11, 2024. This caused a conflict with New Orleans’ Mardi Gras celebrations. The league officially announced on October 14, 2020, that New Orleans would host Super Bowl LIX instead of Super Bowl LVIII. On December 15, 2021, Las Vegas was selected as the host city for Super Bowl LVIII.
The official logo, unveiled on February 13, 2023, follows the updated template introduced by Super Bowl LVI. It features the traditional Roman numerals and incorporates imagery representing the host city or region. In this case, the logo includes the skyline of the Las Vegas Strip and the Las Vegas sign. The slanted numerals evoke the architectural style of resorts like the Bellagio and Wynn Las Vegas.
CBS will televise Super Bowl LVIII, marking the first Super Bowl under the new 11-year NFL television contract. The contract allows for a four-year rotation between CBS, Fox, NBC, and ABC/ESPN. After sub-licensing the Spanish-language rights to the last three Super Bowl games to ESPN Deportes. Televisa Univision announced in May 2023, during its upfronts, that it had reached an agreement with CBS to broadcast Super Bowl LVIII on one of its platforms.
CBS will air the series premiere of Tracker as its lead-out program.
