The Super Bowl, an extravaganza for TV advertisement, is coming to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara in three years, according to the San Francisco 49ers, who play there.

It’s the second time Levi’s Stadium has hosted the event.

The National Football League made the announcement Monday following the spring league meeting in Minneapolis.

“The Bay Area was an incredible host for Super Bowl 50, and we are thrilled to bring the Super Bowl back,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a statement. “We look forward to working with the 49ers and the Bay Area Host Committee to create an impactful Super Bowl LX in 2026 that showcases all the great things the region has to offer.”

Super Bowl 50 generated nearly $250 million for the region’s economy in 2016, according to a study by Sportsimpacts.
