Denver mayor wants Super Bowl hosted at Mile High


With the NFL attempting to successfully pull off a cold weather Super Bowl for the first time, there are plenty of cities and owners paying close attention to see how everything plays out in hopes of hosting a cold weather Super Bowl of their own.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Denver mayor Michael Hancock is one of the owners who will be watching and he is not hiding the fact that he would like to bring the NFL’s big game to Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

“I’m here to root for the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl,” Hancock said.  “We also want to bring the Super Bowl to Denver.

“We have the infrastructure to host this event in the future. We have the hotel rooms, the transportation and the stadiums that would make it work.  We’ve hosted events of this scale in the past and have been successful.”

By all accounts, the Super Bowl in the New York/New Jersey era has been a great success and everyone has enjoyed their time and the atmosphere.

Whether or not this leads to another could weather Super Bowl in the future remains to be seen, but the road is certainly being paved.
