There has been a petition to make the Monday following the Super Bowl a "National Holiday" for years now. It looks like that dream will finally be coming true, at least once. There is no doubt the last Super Bowl was a hit among fans of the NFL. It set a record for viewership. According to the Associate Press it was the most watched program ever in the United States.

The Super Bowl in 2027 Will Be Special

We normally don't look ahead years at a time, but in this case it may be worth it. In 2027 Super Bowl LXI will be falling on Sunday February 14th. The following Monday the country will be honoring President's Day, Monday February 15th which will be a "National Holiday". That is what most NFL fans dream of.

Super Bowl 61 Will be In California

For those that are romantics, having the Super Bowl fall on Valentine's Day, may not be the best scenario. But for those football fans that have been wanting a day off after the Super Bowl, this is the ideal situation. Super Bowl LXI is scheduled to be held at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

The NFL Has Been Close All These Years For a Three Day Weekend

The NFL expanded the regular season to 17 regular season games in 2021. When they did that there was hope among football fans that some day there would be a three-day weekend involved with a "Super Bowl" weekend. In 2027 that looks like it is going to finally happen.
