Super Bowl 2022: Presence, capacity and everything you need to know about the state-of-the-art SoFi stadium

The Rams become only the second team to play a Super Bowl at their home stadium after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the first just twelve months ago.

The stadium, which is also home to the other LA NFL team, the Chargers, is owned by Stan Kroenke, owner of Arsenal, the Rams and several other American sports franchises.

Opened in 2020, it is considered the most expensive sports stadium ever built, costing over $5 billion to build.

Here’s everything you need to know…

What is the capacity of SoFi Stadium for the Super Bowl?

The main SoFi stadium has a minimum capacity of around 70,000, which is roughly the number it will hold for Sunday’s game.

In theory, however, the stadium has the potential to expand to accommodate 100,000 people.

What are the characteristics of the stadium?

In addition to the main stadium, the site also includes a smaller performance hall with a capacity of 6,000, the YouTube Theater and the 2.5-acre American Airlines Plaza.

Designed by architectural firm HKS, the venue is intended to be both a “world stage” and a “fairground for the city of Inglewood,” which is part of the Greater Los Angeles area.

From the outside, SoFi looks like a huge spaceship thanks in large part to its expansive canopy roof, which covers both sites.

Inside, the crown jewel is the largest sports video panel on the planet, a remarkable oval structure that weighs 2.2 million pounds and measures 70,000 square feet.

What other events does the stadium host?

In addition to LA Rams and LA Chargers home games, SoFi Stadium regularly hosts music concerts, with Justin Bieber, The Rolling Stones and BTS among the artists who have performed there.

Moreover, the stadium is already planned to host future major events, including matches of the 2026 FIFA World Cup and the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2028 Olympics.
