(SFC) The National Football League (NFL) has announced the city of Los Angeles has been selected to host Super Bowl LV in 2021. The Los Angeles Super Bowl Bid Committee was led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Wasserman, Casey Wasserman in collaboration with the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (LATCB) and Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC). This will be the region's eight-time hosting a Super Bowl event.

"We are honored that the NFL is bringing the Super Bowl to Los Angeles in 2021. The League's selection of Los Angeles is a testament to its commitment to innovation and diversity, and I couldn't be prouder of our winning bid," expressed Wasserman.

The Los Angeles Super Bowl Bid Committee partnered with the Los Angeles Rams to hold the game in the city of Inglewood at the new Rams stadium that is set to open in 2019.

Wasserman added, "Stan Kroenke's vision for the Rams stadium and the surrounding campus makes Inglewood an ideal venue for staging the Super Bowl of the future, and we look forward to inviting the nation and the world to L.A. for a historic fan experience."

Yesterday, the successful bid presentation was successfully delivered by Wasserman and the bid committee. The presentation focused on what Los Angeles has to offer for entertainment, diversity, and creativity, along with showcasing the city's extensive history of hosting some of the world's biggest sporting events.

"On the heels of the National Football League's historic return to Los Angeles, the Rams are proud to be part of such a significant regional effort of teamwork, leadership and vision to bring the Super Bowl back to Southern...We would like to thank the NFL owners for giving us this opportunity to host the nation's biggest event in sports and entertainment at our world-class stadium, to showcase the great cities of Los Angeles and Inglewood and to deliver an incredible experience for fans from across the globe," commented COO of the Los Angeles Rams, Kevin Demoff.

Inglewood Mayor, James Butts said, "The City of Inglewood is thrilled to be the host for the most watched, single sporting event in the world, Super Bowl LV...Working with the City of Los Angeles, we intend to help make it the greatest fan experience in the history of the NFL. After a 20 year hiatus, professional football is back."

The Super Bowl will officially be played in Inglewood, but other official and unofficial events will be hosted all over the region. Appropriate funds will be raised by the Los Angeles Super Bowl Bid Committee to offset any costs and they will work together with the NFL to deliver the best Super Bowl experience to date.

Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti stated, "Los Angeles is built to host the Super Bowl. We helped forge this great American tradition as its very first host in 1967; and now, at long last, we're bringing it back where it belongs."
