SBD/3/Leagues Governing Bodies

SAN FRANCISCO REWARDED WITH SUPER BOWL XXXIII

     "The NFL's spread-the-wealth philosophy on Super Bowl sites
plucked about $200 million from South Florida's pocket Wednesday
as San Francisco won the 1999 game."  NFL owners said they were
satisfied that a proposed $26M renovation of Candlestick Park was
guaranteed.  That assurance overcame Miami's advantages in
weather and $2M more in projected revenue for the league.  A
league source said the final vote was 18-10 (Greg Cote, MIAMI
HERALD, 11/3).
     ATLANTA IN 2000?  Atlanta Sports Council's Robert Morgan
said that Atlanta's hopes of hosting the Super Bowl were boosted
with the selection of San Francisco in 1999.  Morgan: "I'm not
sure owners would have wanted Miami and Atlanta back-to-back."
NFL Exec Dir Jim Steeg said the site for Super Bowl XXXIV will be
selected next October, with Atlanta bidding against Houston,
Miami, Pasadena, Phoenix and Tampa (Len Pasquarelli, ATLANTA
CONSTITUTION, 11/3).
