The Minnesota Vikings have put in a bid to host the 2018 Super Bowl at their new stadium, ESPN reported. The decision on where to hold the 2018 Super Bowl is expected to be made at the NFL's 2014 spring meetings, and the stadium is expected to be completed in time for the 2016 season. "We're determined to bring a Super Bowl to Minnesota," said Lester Bagley, Vikings' vice president of public affairs and stadium development.
NFL policy is generally to hold the Super Bowl at stadiums in warm-weather locations or in domes, and the Vikings' new stadium is expected to have some type of roof. Whether it is retractable or permanent is unknown at this time.
The Vikings last hosted the superbowl in 1992, at the Metrodome.
