NFL invites New Orleans to bid on Super Bowl LII

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NFL INVITES NEW ORLEANS TO BID ON SUPER BOWL LII

New Orleans Officially Begins Bid Process for 2018 Super Bowl

NEW ORLEANS - Oct. 8, 2013 - Following in the footsteps of the city's tenth and most successful Super Bowl earlier this year, the National Football League (NFL) has officially invited New Orleans to bid to host Super Bowl LII, in 2018.

The New Orleans Saints and Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation will officially begin the bid process to host an NFL record 11th Super Bowl in 2018, while celebrating the Tri-centennial of the city.  

"The Super Bowl is a celebration of unparalleled magnitude. What better time for New Orleans to host its record 11th Super Bowl than during a party 300 years in the making?" said Jay Cicero, Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation president and CEO. "New Orleans' reputation as a Super Bowl host is second to none. We are excited to begin the official bid process to showcase our city's unique culture, spirit and love of major events once again to the NFL. Most importantly, we appreciate the essential support of the New Orleans Saints, Mr. and Mrs. Benson, Rita Benson LeBlanc, and the entire Saints staff in maintaining New Orleans' position as a Super Bowl city."

The process will begin as soon as the bid cities receive the official bid documents from the NFL and will conclude in May 2014 with a presentation to the 32 NFL owners.

"Having hosted 10 Super Bowls, our community recognizes the sizeable economic impact and exposure that this event delivers, and each year the number of cities seeking consideration to host increases. The New Orleans Saints and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation will showcase New Orleans as the premier city for the largest and most successful annual sporting event in the world," said Cicero.
