NFL: San Francisco Likely to Host Super Bowl L, Owners Vote Tuesday

The Bay Area is poised to host their first Super Bowl since 1985, when it was held at Stanford Stadium.

NFL owners are set to vote on Tuesday on where Super Bowl L will be held in 2016, and the decision comes down to the San Francisco Bay Area or Miami.

At this point, it seems as if Miami is a huge underdog, as the Florida Legislature chose not to vote on a bill that would have approved taxpayer support for a $350 million renovation to Sun Life Stadium.

Without the renovation, the Dolphins’ stadium does not stand a chance up against the 49ers’ brand new stadium in Santa Clara that is set to open its doors in 2014.

The stadium will hold 68,500 people and the latest, state-of-the-art advances in Silicon Valley.

Along with a green roof, the it will feature “stadium-wide WiFi capability, mobile connectivity, IPTV, and colossal HD video boards measuring over 13,000 square feet, no one will miss a minute of the action,” according to the stadium’s official website. 

Having driven past the new stadium many a times and seen the structure go up slowly but surely, it’s hard to believe that construction began just over a year ago, and the Super Bowl will be coming here in two years.
