Tampa Bay Wants Super Bowl

Tampa and Miami will make a bid for the 2015 Super Bowl. It’s not just up to the city though, they will have to receive an invitation from the NFL to be among places considered for the game. Given the balmy climate and tourist friendly atmosphere, that shouldn’t be a problem. Tampa Bay was a  strong contender for 2014, but lost to New York – the first cold weather venue in a an open stadium for the Super Bowl, who was favored because they will play in a new stadium. We’ll have to see how that works out. Maybe they’ll have the kinks worked out of their snow plow brigade by then.

Florida has hosted more Super Bowl games than any other state, the longest it has gone without hosting is 4 years. So, odds are good for 2015. Tampa has hosted 4 times, and Miami has hosted 10 times.
