When the NFL awarded Super Bowl LVIII in February of 2024 to New Orleans, it was going to be a tight squeeze to get everything finished before the city fills up for Mardi Gras, which is on February 13 in 2024. Then the league decided to start playing 17-game seasons and move the Super Bowl back a week, and New Orleans was no longer feasible.
So there’s been talk in league circles for several months that the next New Orleans Super Bowl is going to be moved back to 2025, when Mardi Gras doesn’t come until March 4. Today that is likely to become official.
