The 2021 season Super Bowl 56 was played at SoFi Stadium in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood, California, on February 13th, 2022, between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals.
The LA Rams won, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20, and Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp was named Super Bowl MVP. Country singer Mickey Guyton performed the national anthem before kickoff, and the half-time show was headlined by Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent.
This was the first Super Bowl held on the second Sunday in February, instead of the first Sunday, due to the NFL increasing the number of regular season games from 16 to 17. With the SoFi stadium being the home of the LA Rams, the game was second-consecutive and second Super Bowl overall to feature a team playing in its home stadium, following Super Bowl 55 between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs played at the Buccaneers’ home stadium, the Raymond James Stadium, in Tampa, Florida.
