MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Vikings announced Tuesday they’ve officially submitted their bid to host Super Bowl LII in 2018.
The Minnesota Super Bowl Bid Committee put together the preliminary pitch and sent it to the NFL. The process took about two months to put together. It’s hundreds of pages detailing what would happen in the Twin Cities if the NFL chose to bring the Super Bowl here again.
That includes options for event venues, transportation and parking, lodging, security procedures, practice sites for the teams and more. That’s just scratching the surface of the NFL’s biggest game of the year and one of the most watched every year around the world.
“Right now the Super Bowl is so much more than just a game. It’s really a week-long event, with all these other events taking place in Bloomington, St Paul and Minneapolis,” said Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority.
