Decision on Minneapolis Super Bowl Coming Tuesday. City Facing Tough Battle with New Orleans

The NFL Owners Meetings are currently underway and tomorrow they will decide the location for Super Bowl LII in 2018.

The owners will decide between the new Vikings stadium in Minneapolis, the Superdome in New Orleans, and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The Vikings have made a strong push to get the Super Bowl in 2018, but also have bids for 2019 and 2020 just in case. According to Ben Goessling of ESPN, They will have strong competition against New Orleans who is looking to host the Super Bowl in celebration of their 300th birthday.

Goessling writes that the NFL may tell the Vikings to wait an extra year for 2019. That would allow New Orleans to host the big game in conjunction of 300 years, while giving Minneapolis another year to get everything situated.

With the NFL rewarding new stadium’s a Super Bowl, the Vikings should be able to get one in 2019 or 2020 if they don’t in 2018. A couple extra years certainly won’t hurt the planning process for the city. The sooner that it occurs though, the happier everyone will be.

It might be an uphill battle against New Orleans (plus the weather is warmer…yes, even with both stadiums indoors this will play a factor), but if the results don’t pan out for Minnesota tomorrow there is still a good chance that it will happen a year or two later.
