The implementation of the 17 week regular season may affect the 2024 Super Bowl.

The league has the option of starting the 17 week system in 2021, which will allow the playoffs to last until February. This has also led to possible clashes: Tuesday, the traditional festival of penitence in New Orleans, the host city, may also be in February.

New Orleans will not lose the right to host, but the year may be delayed.

“In the 2018 bidding process, we also considered the impact of the 17 week competition system in the new CBA,” coalition spokesman Brian McCarthy said. The league is currently discussing with the saints and the New Orleans sports foundation whether to continue to host the Super Bowl in 2024 or to postpone it to a time suitable for both sides. ”

New Orleans has hosted 10 Super Bowl events, the most recent in 2013.

The super bowl will be held in Tampa Bay in 2021, followed by Los Angeles and Arizona in the next two years.
