The 50th anniversary of the most prestigious game in professional sports will take place in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Following a vote by 32 NFL owners on Tuesday, Super Bowl L will be played at Levi’s® Stadium, the future home of the San Francisco 49ers.

The San Francisco Super Bowl bid committee was selected over the South Florida committee to host the league’s championship game in 2016.

“Today’s vote is the culmination of hard work from a number of dedicated individuals,” 49ers CEO Jed York told 49ers.com moments after the big game was awarded to the Bay Area. “Our bid committee should be commended for putting together a proposal for NFL ownership that accurately depicted how memorable a Bay Area Super Bowl will be.”

Levi’s® Stadium, set to open in 2014, will be the most technologically advanced venue to ever host a Super Bowl. It also figures to be the first cashless, ticketless venue with WiFi capability for 75,000 people in Super Bowl history.

The Super Bowl’s 50th anniversary game will return to the Bay Area for the first time since Super Bowl XIX, a 38-16 victory by the 49ers that was held at Stanford Stadium in 1985.
