With a final whistle ending Sunday’s Super Bowl festivities, the starting whistle for Las Vegas. Our city is the next destination for the biggest game in American sports!

A press conference was held today with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority President Steve Hill, Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo and other dignitaries. At the event, the proverbial (and literal) ball was handed off to Las Vegas by Phoenix, who held Sunday’s Super Bowl festivities.

Beckoning NFL Draft terminology for being next up, Roger Goodell pronounced that Las Vegas is “now on the clock”. Only 363 days until kick-off at Allegiant Stadium on February 11th, 2024.

LVCVA’s Steve Hill said it pretty plainly – the city has been preparing for this event for 60 years. Las Vegas is known for spectacle and while an event the size and scope of the Super Bowl might be a big undertaking for most, Las Vegas seems more than up for the challenge.

Check Out The Las Vegas Centric Super Bowl Logo

The new Super Bowl LVIII logo was unveiled, making the event’s inevitable stop to the valley even more real. The logo features a slight move of the standard logo. For the last several years, the Lombardi Trophy was between the “L” and following roman numerals. Now the trophy takes center stage, putting “LV” to the left (in what we take as an homage to Vegas). The III slides to the right, with the I’s sporting the silhouette of the world famous “Welcome To Las Vegas” sign.

Considering this is Las Vegas, things were done “bigger” than ever, with a 1,200 pound behemoth of a replica NFL football sporting the new logo.

We are less than a year away from the “Big Game,” and you can bet Las Vegas will be ready.
