The NFL has made preliminary inquiries with the city of Arlington Texas, in the Dallas Fort Worth area, to see if the next Super Bowl could be held at that city's AT&T Stadium.
According to local DFW outlet WFAA 8, The Super Bowl is currently slated to take place on Feb. 13 2022, in Inglewood California at the SoFi Stadium. However, there is concern that California's famously draconian COVID restrictions may cause the need for a change of venue.
Arlington city officials let it be known that they have availability on the date requested, but negotiations have not gone beyond that point, as of the time of this writing.
Inquiries like this are common, iterated Brian McCarthy, a spokesperson for the NFL. He went on to say that contingency plans are made every year for the Super Bowl:
"We plan on playing Super Bowl LVI as scheduled at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday Feb. 13," stated McCarthy.
"As part of our standard contingency planning process that we conduct for all regular and postseason games, we have contacted several clubs to inquire about stadium availability in the event we cannot play the Super Bowl as scheduled due to weather-related issues or unforeseen circumstances."
"Our planning process for the Super Bowl in Los Angeles is ahead of schedule and we look forward to hosting the Super Bowl there to culminate another fantastic NFL season for our fans and clubs.”
