Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Tampa eye 2019, 2020 Super Bowls

Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans and Tampa will be in the bidding to host the 2019 and 2020 Super Bowls, the NFL confirmed Tuesday night.

In addition, Los Angeles will be eligible to bid for the 2020 game provided a team is playing in a new stadium there by the 2018 season.

The host cities will likely be voted upon during the league owners meetings in May 2016.

The Saints made the announcement that New Orleans was invited to bid against the three other cities.

New Orleans is aiming for its 11th Super Bowl after falling short to Minneapolis in voting for the 2018 Super Bowl last year.

"New Orleans is a Super Bowl favorite city and has been for many years," Saints owner Tom Benson said in a statement. "We are excited to be once again invited and I am confident that our city leaders and the hospitality community will come together and put forth our best bid."

Miami, meanwhile, is also aiming to host its 11th Super Bowl, which is tied with New Orleans for the most.

Tampa is bidding for its fifth Super Bowl.

Atlanta is bidding for its third -- and the first for the city since 2000, when Kurt Warner led the St. Louis Rams to a 23-16 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Although Atlanta is the least experienced of the four contenders, it could be considered a front-runner since the Falcons are set to open a new $1.5 billion stadium in 2017.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank previously announced his intention to bid for the 2019 Super Bowl.

"Atlanta is one of the most vibrant and progressive cities in America,'' Blank said. "We are thrilled to once again be part of the process to potentially show off our great city and host the world's greatest sporting event."

The NFL has often rewarded cities with new stadiums with Super Bowls in recent history, including two of the next three host cities, San Francisco and Minneapolis.
