San Francisco Hosting 2016 Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) -- The 50th Super Bowl will be held in the San Francisco Bay Area.
 
NFL owners have voted Tuesday for the 49ers' new stadium as host of the 2016 game. That facility in Santa Clara, Calif., is due to open for the 2014 season.
 
San Francisco beat out South Florida, which was stymied in its bid to stage an 11th Super Bowl when the Florida Legislature did not support financing to renovate Sun Life Stadium.
 
The 2017 Super Bowl will be held in Houston, which also beat out Miami for that game. 
 
The only previous Super Bowl played in northern California was at Stanford Stadium in 1985.
 
Houston hosted the 2004 NFL championship game.
 
Earlier Tuesday, owners approved a $200 million loan for stadium construction in Atlanta.
