Los Angeles is set to host the Super Bowl LXI in 2027 at the SoFi stadium, with Mayor Karen Bass joining Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts to celebrate the occasion. "The Los Angeles region continues to attract world-renowned events and we look forward to yet again hosting the Super Bowl," said Mayor Bass in a statement obtained by the official city website.

Mayor Butts echoed the enthusiasm, expressing confidence in delivering an event to remember: "Given the success of the 2022 event, we are certain the NFL will find SoFi Stadium and the City of Inglewood ready to deliver an exciting and memorable Super Bowl LXI." The back-to-back Super Bowl announcement adds another jewel to LA's event crown, which includes the 2024 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball West Region Championship, 2026 U.S. Women’s Open Championship, FIFA World Cup 26™, and the 2028 Olympic & Paralympic Games.

Following her "Year in Review Address," Mayor Bass highlighted her dedication to improving the Los Angeles area, tackling issues from homelessness to city service improvements. A notable mention was the absence of the large unhoused encampment that used to reside near The Rose Venice, a result of the Inside Safe operation. The full speech can be viewed here.

In addition, Mayor Bass is keeping her finger on the pulse of the LA populace with her telephone town halls; the latest was her second such engagement with residents. Engaging directly with the community, she discussed her efforts over the past year, including confronting the city’s homelessness crisis and supporting local businesses.
