The Super Bowl (click here) is headed back to the Los Angeles area.

NFL owners voted Tuesday to award the city Super Bowl LV in 2021, which returns the event to the country's second-largest urban region for the first time since 1993.

Atlanta was awarded Super Bowl LIII in 2019, and South Florida will host the Super Bowl LIV in 2020. The Falcons plan to open a new stadium in 2017, while the Dolphins have $450 million in stadium renovations planned. 
"A lot of work went into this. It was a nine-year project," Falcons president Rich McKay said after the vote. "One of the reasons you build stadiums is to continue to get the big events."
