Metlife Stadium hosts two NFL teams – the Jets and the Giants –each of who have their own space within the stadium. The stadium made history in 2014 when it hosted Super Bowl XLVIII, seeing as it was the first time the game was played in an open-air, cold-weather stadium.

Super Bowl LI (2017)

With a capacity of 72,220, NRG Stadium in Houston hosted Super Bowl LI in 2017. Home of the Houston Texans and formerly known as Reliant Stadium, the stadium was the first in the NFL with a retractable roof. The field was originally made of natural grass, grown on eight-square-foot trays, which were transported in and out of the stadium. Prior to the 2015 season, the Texans replaced the grass with Astroturf. NRG Stadium previously hosted Super Bowl XXXVIII between the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers.

Super Bowl LII (2018)

U.S. Bank Stadium | Minneapolis, Minnesota
