ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Governor Mark Dayton has authorized the Minnesota National Guard to help with security during Super Bowl LII.

More than one million visitors are expected in Minneapolis for the game and its surrounding events. The guard members will work with local law enforcement, traffic control and security at key venues.

This is a standard request. The National Guard has helped with Super Bowl security since 2002. The Super Bowl Host Committee will pick up any costs to the state.

  1. Robert Ryan says:

    Military members should NOT be providing ANY services for the national FELONS league. Let the kneelers take care of themselves. Their disrespect is an insult to EVERY Military member who has SERVED this country. Actions have consequences.
