(KRON) — Super Bowl LX (60) is officially coming to the Bay Area. The NFL confirmed the news on Monday after it was first reported last week.

The game will be played on February 8, 2026. It will be the stadium’s second Super Bowl — the Denver Broncos’ 2016 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 was also played in Santa Clara.

“We are thrilled that Super Bowl LX is coming to the Bay Area and look forward to welcoming football fans and visitors from across the country to our City and Levi’s Stadium in 2026,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed said. “San Francisco is excited to help host this incredible event and show off our great City to the world!”

“Thrilled to welcome the Super Bowl to San Jose! We are the Downtown of Silicon Valley, largest city in the Bay, the center of innovation & now, the home of Super Bowl 60. For football fans & community members alike, this is huge,” San Jose Mayor Matt Mahan said.

Levi’s Stadium will have a busy 2026, as it was named a World Cup host site for when the global soccer tournament comes to the United States that summer.

There was some controversy surrounding the 2016 game. Viral videos showed players slipping on the field, making fans question the quality of the stadium turf.

One other Bay Area stadium has hosted a Super Bowl. Stanford Stadium was the site when the San Francisco 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX (19).
