With New England Patriots winning Super Bowl XLIX in dramatic fashion, the clock is officially ticking on the Bay Area Super Bowl next year.

Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, which just completed its first season as home to the five-time champion 49ers, will host the Super Bowl’s golden anniversary with the 50th installment of the NFL’s championship game.

No team has ever played in its home stadium for the Super Bowl, although the 49ers did come close when they beat the Miami Dolphins 38-16 in Super Bowl XIX in 1985 at Stanford.

“The Super Bowl is an incredible opportunity for any region, and we are honored to be hosting the milestone Super Bowl 50 our region; we intend to showcase all the Bay Area has to offer — from Pebble Beach to wine country — to visitors and viewers from around the globe,” Keith Bruce, chairman of the Bay Area host committee, said in a released statement. “We see Super Bowl 50 as a powerful catalyst for our region.”
