With the NFL moving the 2021 Super Bowl from Los Angeles to Tampa at the league's spring meeting this week, New Orleans is still without hosting an upcoming Super Bowl and there is no opportunity coming to bid on the big game. 

Now that Los Angeles will get the 2022 Super Bowl, the host for Super Bowl 2023 is still open, but Jay Cicero, the CEO of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation says they've gotten no word from the league about upcoming bids. 

"Right now the NFL is not currently bidding out any future Super Bowls beyond what the transition from Los Angeles to Tampa for 2021 and now Los Angeles taking 2022," said Cicero.  "So 2023 and 2024 are not out for bid yet, and we're not sure if there is a timeline, but we'll be working very closely with the New Orleans Saints on that process whenever it happens."  

Cicero says the NFL does have a process that includes inviting cities to bid.         

But it doesn't mean New Orleans isn't busy with a lot of upcoming events in the future.    

Cicero says they are currently bidding for the ESPN X games and New Orleans of course is hosting Wrestlemania coming up in April of 2018.  He says they are partnered with the Sugar Bowl on the college football championship game in 2020 were awarded the women's final four in 2020.

"This December we have the CBS Sports Classic, which is North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio State and UCLA playing at the New Orleans Arena," Cicero adds.  "That's a big, big college basketball event."
