Despite events like both the men’s and women’s Final Four, the College Football National Championship and Wrestlemania recently coming to New Orleans, the NFL hasn’t held its showcase event in the city since 2013 despite the location being a favorite of many people in the league.

It appears that drought will end in 2024.

New Orleans was the only city invited to bid on the Super Bowl LVIII and has been working to meet the NFL’s criteria since November. A presentation will go before the league’s owners on Wednesday for approval.

“It’s hard to measure all the specifics the city benefits from an event like that,” said Saints coach Sean Payton. “You could really narrow it down to one or two cities that (host the Super Bowl) better than anyone, and this would be one of them.”
