Super Bowl LI was an American football event and the 51st edition of the Super Bowl and the 47th modern-era National Football League championship game. Fox telecasts the game at Reliant Stadium in Houston.[1]

The league selected the sites for both Super Bowl L and Super Bowl LI in early 2013.[2] Host city announcement occurred on May 21, 2013.[3] On October 16, 2012, the NFL announced that Houston's Reliant Stadium is a finalist to host the game.[2] Houston then competed against the runner-up for the site of Super Bowl L: Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.[2][3] The Miami bid for either Super Bowl partially depended on whether the stadium underwent renovations. However, on May 3, the Florida legislature refused to approve the funding plan to pay for the renovations, dealing a blow to Miami's chances.[4] Houston was ultimately selected for the host city of Super Bowl LI.[5]
