The San Francisco 49ers, who will break ground on their new $1.2 billion stadium Thursday, are planning to bid for Super Bowl L, The Sacramento Bee reported Saturday, citing sources.

WHAT'S SHAKING?

NFL Draft is here, and we have you covered.

Teams are required to play two full seasons in a new venue before they are eligible to host a Super Bowl and the 49ers are reportedly confident the stadium will be ready for the 2014 season. Super Bowl L will be played in February, 2016.

If San Francisco was to win the bid it would make for a bit of symmetry for the NFL as Super Bowl I was held in California, in Los Angeles in 1967.

The Super Bowl Advisory Committee will begin accepting applications from interested cities for Super Bowl L in the summer, before deciding on finalists in October.
