STATE – New Jersey will host the 2014 Super Bowl, NFL officials announced today.
The league’s 32 owners voted to award Super Bowl XLVIII to the Meadowlands, the new $1.6 billion home of the Giants and Jets. It will be the first time that the NFL’s showcase event is played at an outdoor, cold-weather site.
The game is expected to pump millions of dollars into the metropolitan area economy and may accelerate a naming rights deal for the new stadium.
The New Jersey/New York bid beat out South Florida and Tampa Bay, who have hosted the game a combined 14 times.
