Super Bowl 55 was a game that was played in Foxborough, Massachussets that saw the St. Louis Stallions face off against the Houston Texans. The Game was the second to be played in an outdoor stadium in the northeast with Super Bowl XLVIII being the first. The Stallions played their rivals, the LA Rams beating them 24-21 in the NFC Championship Game and the Texans took down the Steelers 37-27.
In 2016, the St. Louis Rams relocated to Los Angeles after 21 years in St. Louis. Three years later, a group led by three prominent St. Louis investors, Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan, Former Budwesier CEO Dave Peacock alongside former Attorney Bob Blitz, formed the St. Louis Football Organization and announced their intention of forming a new team in St. Louis. The League approved its bid and gave them the records to the St. Louis Cardinals (1960-1987) and St. Louis Rams (1995-2015) allowing them to be a continuation of the football teams that played there.
The League initially oversaw four prominent bids for the rights to Super Bowl 55 (then referred to as LV)
- City of Champions Stadium, Los Angeles, CA filed a bid in 2017, but an agreement allowed them to bid for Super Bowl LIV and win it
- SunLife Stadium, Miami, Florida, The Dolphins filed a bid but the league began to call Miami a "Dead City" and sought out new oppurtunities
- New Orleans filed a bid for its renovated Superdome but lost due to public opposition to Tom Benson
Gillete Stadium in Foxborough, MA, took LA's place in the bidding and recieved popular support amongst NFL Owners who felt the need to continue on the trend started in 2014. The NFL awarded the bid in 2017 and announced it would continue to seek future outdoor bids but only if the stadium can house more than 70,000 people
