It was a wild and successful weekend in ‘Sin City’ Las Vegas for Super Bowl 58.
It turns out that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell couldn’t have been more pleased with how things turned out in Las Vegas’ first ever Super Bowl which was held on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders.
Goodell said that it is “safe to say the NFL looks forward to coming back” for another Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in an overtime thriller that saw Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman catch a walk-off touchdown from Patrick Mahomes.
Sports leagues have now been embracing the entertainment mecca as a host city for teams and big events with the Raiders relocating there from Oakland, the NHL expanding there with the Las Vegas Golden Knights, and the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces relocating there from San Antonio. The MLB may be soon to follow with the Oakland Athletics looking to relocate there as well.
The next three Super Bowls are scheduled for New Orleans, San Francisco, and Los Angeles so the NFL will have to wait until at least 2028 for their next Vegas Super Bowl.
