This year, Allegiant Stadium will for the first time have the honor of hosting a Super Bowl. The latest edition will be called Super Bowl LVIII. This massive event that dominates American sports and lights up televisions around the world takes place on Sunday, February 11 where The Kansas City Chiefs will face the San Francisco 49ers.

In addition, both teams played each other in three finals of this tournament: two wins for the Seleção (1922 and 1949) and one victory for the Albirroja in 1953.
The Allegiant’s farewell from the tournament will be on Saturday, July 6, when it hosts the quarterfinals between the first-place team of Group C and the second-place team of Group D.
