Indy won’t host second Super Bowl in 2018

ATLANTA, Georgia (WISH) – The 2018 Super Bowl will not be hosted by Indianapolis.

Minneapolis was chosen as the host city after Indianapolis received the fewest number of votes in the first round of voting.

Groups from Indianapolis, New Orleans and Minneapolis presented their bids for the Super Bowl Tuesday afternoon.

Indianapolis’ plan was to emphasize the Circle City’s past success as a Super Bowl host, and unveil a new Legacy Project that would emphasize improving safety and youth football.

Former Indianapolis Colt Jeff Saturday and Colts owner Jim Irsay wrapped up the city’s presentation.
