Indianapolis To Bid To Host '18 Super Bowl After Positive Financial Impact This Year
Published July 19, 2012
SITTING THIS ONE OUT: Indiana Sports Corporation President Susan Williams yesterday said it is "highly unlikely" the city will make a bid for the college football championship game, which beginning in '14 will be awarded to the highest bidder. Williams added that the Sports Corporation’s “plate is full for the next several years” (INDYSTAR.com, 7/18). ESPN.com’s Adam Rittenberg wrote Lucas Oil Stadium had been viewed “as a strong candidate to be part of the rotation to host college football’s national title game.” While Indianapolis “could be in the mix down the road, this is disappointing news for Big Ten fans hoping to have the national title game closer to home” (ESPN.com, 7/18).
