U.S. Bank Stadium
The National Football League evaluates potential hosting cities based on stadium renovation and their ability to host. Stadiums are usually chosen three to five years before the game, with Minneapolis winning the bid to host in 2014. This is the second Super Bowl to be held in Minnesota, the last one being in 1992.
This year will be the sixth game played in a cold-weather city. Despite the weather dedicated fans will gather at the state’s northernmost city to host the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is broadcasted across the United States and on U.S. military bases and has become popular to watch in pubs across the United Kingdom and Germany.
