Another cold weather Super Bowl is on the horizon.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced that Super Bowl LII will be played in Minnesota. Super Bowl LII is slated for February 2018.
Minnesota ousted New Orleans in the fourth round of owner voting. Minnesota hosted a Super Bowl in the Metrodome in 1992.
However, Super Bowl LII will be played in the Vikings’ ultra-sleek dome capped stadium. The luxurious sporting complex, which is currently under construction, will debut in 2016.
Arizona, San Francisco, and Houston will host the upcoming three Super Bowls before the championship returns back north. Three months ago, New York/New Jersey hosted an outdoor Super Bowl featuring the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.
Recently, the NFL taken commercialization to an unparalleled level. WIth rumors about expanded playoffs and a draft location change roaring, the NFL will generate boatloads of fresh revenue.
Hosting a Super Bowl in Minnesota—albeit in a dome—stretches the internationally viewed portrait of the NFL across the country.
