Have you ever been to the Super Bowl?
The answer is probably going to be “likely not”, due to a number of reasons – not the least of which is how much money it can cost to purchase a single Super Bowl game ticket.
And that’s not the least of your concerns.
Traveling to the host city, getting a hotel room, transportation, food – all of these can add up dramatically depending on where the game is being held.
But, if you’re lucky enough to live near an NFL franchise city – let’s say within a 2-hour drive or so – then you could eliminate all those intangible, unpredictable costs and focus solely on the game ticket and gameday parking to complete your bucket list goal of attending a Super Bowl game in person.
So how do you know if your local NFL CITY CAN HOST A SUPER BOWL? It’s quite easy, actually.
Because not every city with an NFL franchise has the infrastructure available to host a Super Bowl and all of its associated events and activities.
To host a Super Bowl, a city must have the following:
- a stadium that can seat a minimum of 70,000 fans and corporate sponsors
- An average January outdoor temperature of at least 50 degrees… or a domed stadium.
- At least 24,500 hotel rooms within one hour of the stadium
- Up to 2 million square feet of convention space available for the NFL EXPERIENCE.
- Even more available space for the SUPER BOWL VILLAGE.
Oh yeah – and the city that hosts the Super Bowl must also have an NFL team.
So here’s a question for Web Watch readers: if you have to attend a Super Bowl, what city(s) would you most want to travel to in order to attend, and why?
