Build a new stadium and there’s a good chance that a Super Bowl will follow.
Minneapolis is the latest city to put the building of a new stadium in motion and see the NFL reward their efforts. The Minnesota Vikings will open their new $1 billion dollar stadium in time for the 2016 NFL season.
The owners chose Minneapolis over New Orleans and Indianapolis. The last time the Twin Cities hosted a Super Bowl was in 1992 at the Metrodome. That facility has since been torn down, to replaced by the new facility which is under construction.
Prior to 2018, the Super Bowl will make stops in Glendale, Arizona next year, followed by Santa Clara, California and Houston.
The stadium in Minneapolis will hold up to 72,000 for the Super Bowl.
