    Minneapolis Will Host Super Bowl 52

    Minnesota will host Super Bowl LII

    The NFL has announced that Super Bowl LII will be played in Minnesota.

    The game, played in 2018, will be the first Super Bowl in the new Vikings’ stadium in Downtown Minneapolis, which is currently under construction. Minnesota had previously hosted a Super Bowl in the Metrodome.

    Minnesota was chosen over New Orleans and Indianapolis. As expected, Indianapolis was voted out in the early rounds of voting, but it was a surprise that Minnesota was able to beat out the bid from New Orleans, which has hosted 10 Super Bowls. New Orleans was founded in 1718, and the 2018 game would have had special significance as a part of the city’s tricentennial celebration.

    New Orleans will likely get another Super Bowl soon, but today is the time for Minnesota’s host committee to celebrate. The Super Bowl is heading to Minnesota.

    This fires me up. Hopefully we can win our first one in our own stadium!

    that all depends on what all is included and who's crunching the numbers...and some say numbers put out there are often overblown......but, for example, the Super Bowl in New Orleans a couple years ago was estimated to generate $480mil

    I just wanna bang my head on the wall when I see people that talk like the NFL gives Super Bowls to teams as a thank you for getting a new stadium....when it's not the team that even benefits the most, it's the city...

    ...so for those people who thought this stadium shouldn't have happened..or shouldn't have involved public money? Guess what, when the NFL does this it is a HUGE boost in getting the stadium paid for...

    The one thing that gets overlooked a lot by the cities hosting the Superbowl, is that it is the event that has the most human trafficking draw. Scary stuff.
