NFL names location for Super Bowl 52

Ezra Shaw

The NFL has named the location for the 52nd Super Bowl.

It's official: Super Bowl LII (52) will be held at the Minnesota Vikings' new stadium in Minneapolis. NFL owners voted on the location of the 2018 Super Bowl on Tuesday, and Minneapolis won the bid over New Orleans and Indianapolis. As a result, Minneapolis is now set to host its first Super Bowl since 1992, when the Washington Redskins beat the Buffalo Bills at the Metrodome

Coming into Tuesday's vote, New Orleans was actually viewed as the favorite to win the bid, but the owners decided to go with the newer stadium instead. As a result, the Vikings' new stadium, which is set to open in 2016, will play host to the 52nd Super Bowl.

For the two losing cities, it's likely that they will continue to be in the mix to host future Super Bowls. New Orleans is seemingly always a candidate to host the game, and Indianapolis did an excellent job with the 2012 Super Bowl.

Here's a rundown of the next four Super Bowl locations:

2015: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
2016: Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
2017: NRG Stadium, Houston, TX
2018: Vikings Stadium, Minneapolis, MN
