Super Bowl 56 getting moved to AT&T Stadium in Dallas due to COVID-19?

Super Bowl 56 is set to take place on Sunday, February 13 from the brand new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

But, with the recent cases of Covid ramping up in the United States, the NFL apparently has a contingency plan and if needed, are considering relocating the game to AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

The Super Bowl has been played in AT&T Stadium before back in February of 2011 when the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl 45.

Last year, the Rose Bowl was in the same situation, as it had to be moved from Pasadena to Texas due to COVID-19. A year ago, the game was able to be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, where the Buccaneers were the first team to host their own Super Bowl and won the game over the Kansas City Chiefs.
