The game is set to be televised nationally by NBC.
- U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Minneapolis last hosted the Super Bowl in 1992 (Super Bowl XXVI) at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome; the Metrodome was torn down after the 2013 season, and over the course of 2014 and 2015 U.S. Bank Stadium was being built on the same site.
- Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. Previously hosted Super Bowl XLVI in 2012.
- Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Superdome has previously hosted the Super Bowl on seven occasions, most recently Super Bowl XLVII in 2013 (New Orleans has hosted the Super Bowl on ten occasions in total). New Orleans will celebrate its Tricentennial in 2018.
Minneapolis was selected at the league owners' meeting in Atlanta on May 20, 2014.
The 2018 Saint Paul Winter Carnival will conclude on Super Bowl Sunday. About once a decade, including during the 1992 Super Bowl hosted in Minneapolis, the Carnival has hosted a large ice palace. Organizers hope again to build an ice palace to attract Super Bowl visitors to Saint Paul in 2018.
