Super Bowl Programs Appear To Downplay New Jersey's Role
Images of the official game program for Super Bowl XLVIII were released today, and the cover offers "proof the world thinks this is the Big Apple's event." The cover shows the "New York skyline behind the Vince Lombardi Trophy," and the words "New York" appear "first on the bottom of the cover." Both MetLife Stadium and the practice facilities for the game are located in New Jersey (NJ.com, 1/20). Meanwhile, Super Bowl Host Committee member Rich Petriccione said that he "doesn’t believe the NFL is downplaying the fact the game will be played in New Jersey" (NJ.com, 1/20).
