The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are set to square off in Super Bowl LIV on February 2, 2020. The big game will be played in Miami's Hard Rock Stadium, with a chance that the winning team will win just about as many games there as the Miami Dolphins did this season.
Recent hosts Atlanta and Minneapolis provide a clear model for how to land a Super Bowl. It's simple. Build a new stadium or make significant improvements to the existing one. (Hard Rock Stadium finished significant renovations in 2016.) The lineup of future Super Bowl hosts features some of the newest and most recently renovated stadiums in the NFL.
Here's where you'll be seeing Super Bowl games played over the next handful of seasons, along with the tentative dates.

US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis held the championship in its second year of use (2018). That was the same situation for Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz stadium in 2019. That stadium opened in the fall of 2017. Meanwhile, Hard Rock Stadium underwent a $250 million renovation in 2016 and the Ray Jay in Tampa had a $100 million project greenlit in 2015. Spend the money and the Super Bowl will come.
