Super Bowl 50
The National Football League sent a message to South Florida and any other city hoping to host the Super Bowl Tuesday: put together public funding for our stadiums or don’t expect to host the big game.
It’s almost anti-climactic for South Florida at this point, but Tuesday, NFL owners will meet in Boston and vote on the sites to hold Super Bowl’s L and LI.
In stark contrast to South Florida, San Francisco held their super bowl bid conference Monday in the center of the city. Right in front of where their super bowls activities would be.
For 350 million dollars, Sun Life Stadium could have a roof and some great upgrades and be in line for future Super Bowls.
The Miami Dolphins have relented on their pitch for renovations to Sun Life Stadium and will send the issue to the voters to decide whether any public money will be used. But ahead of a planned Monday press conference, time will be short to get the issue on a ballot.
If your tax dollars will be used to build a new stadium for the Dolphins, voters will have to approve it, according to sources with deep knowledge of the controversial plan.
The road to the Super Bowl is no easy task for players and coaches of the NFL, but hosting the ultimate game is no easy task either. With the bid for who will host Super Bowl 50 just a few months away, South Florida hopes to bring the biggest game to Sun Life Stadium.
Super Bowl 50 may be four years away, but South Florida’s Super Bowl Bid Committee is wasting no time going after the big game.
