Could the Super Bowl be coming back to Minnesota? Far too early to say

Posted by: under Vikings, Super Bowl Updated: March 20, 2013 - 3:24 PM

We mentioned earlier this week that the Vikings had submitted an application to be considered as a potential Super Bowl host during a three-year window that would include the 2017, ’18 and ’19 seasons. That game, of course, would be played in a downtown stadium that hasn’t yet been built. So for now, the organization’s push to land the Super Bowl is in the very early stages. Very early. Plus, the NFL is still looking to choose host cities for the Super Bowls to be held in early 2016 and 2017, decisions that will be made in May.

Still, commissioner Roger Goodell was asked how the league will go about considering Minnesota’s aspirations of hosting the Super Bowl.

Said Goodell: “Our focus on Super Bowls is obviously the two we’re going to reward in May. We’ve had a little bit of discussion on how we’d proceed beyond that but not specific to any site. I guess I would just reinforce the point again that the stadium is a big component of what we look at. It’s important for us to be able to play the game on the best possible stage. And the stadium has become a big part of that decision and has become more and more important.”
