Dallas-Fort Worth Applies to Host Super Bowl LII

Posted: Updated:

(KXAS) -- Dallas-Fort Worth is one of six cities that have put in applications to host Super Bowl LII, the National Football League said Tuesday.

Miami, New Orleans, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Tampa, and Dallas-Fort Worth are the six hopefuls who'd like to bring the 2018 Super Bowl to their areas, according to the NFL.com report.

The Dallas Cowboys wouldn't confirm the report and only said they weren't making a presentation on Tuesday.

The NFL said the Super Bowl Advisory Committee is reviewing potential candidates this week, on Monday and Tuesday, from each of the six cities at the NFL Fall Meeting in Washington D.C.

According to the league, the field will be narrowed down to two finalists on Tuesday before the final vote for the host is cast at the 2014 NFL Spring Meeting.

North Texas hosted Super Bowl XLV in 2011 where record winter weather covered roads with ice and snow,  temporary seats erected in then-named Cowboys Stadium were deemed unsafe and lead to some attendees unable to see the game, as well as other issues.

Super Bowl LII is scheduled for 2018. Prior to that, the Super Bowl will be held at the following locations:

  • 2014 - Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey (Giants/Jets home)
  • 2015 - Super Bowl XLIX at University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Ariz. (Cardinals home)
  • 2016 - Super Bowl L at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. (49ers new home)
  • 2017 - Super Bowl LI at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas (Texans home)
