Minnesota to host Super Bowl LII

Super Bowl LII was awarded to Minnesota, continuing the tradition of the NFL awarding Super Bowls to cities that build new stadiums.

Minneapolis will host the Super Bowl in a new $1 billion stadium that's being constructed ahead of the 2018 Super Bowl.

Minneapolis beat out New Orleans and Indianapolis with this marking the first time New Orleans has ever lost a Super Bowl bid.

Minneapolis last hosted a Super Bowl in 1992 at the Metrodome, which is no longer standing.

 

Minneapolis has a dome, so the game won't be played outdoors.
