A Little Bit of Super Bowl History in the Bay Area
The last (and only) time the Super Bowl was held in the Bay Area dates back to 1985 for Super Bowl XIX when the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Miami Dolphins at the Stanford Stadium. Super Bowl interest and ability to reach people is growing year after year as you can see in the number of people who viewed the game in 1985 at 85.5 million and just this last year reached 114.4 million people, and the upcoming Super Bowl 50 will continue on this pattern no doubt. We look forward to new records being broken and more fun at the Golden Anniversary Super Bowl game.
