Will Charlotte ever host a Super Bowl?

Seems like Tampa, New Orleans, Miami, and San Diego host them all the time. Will Charlotte ever have its chance?

Probably not, too cold in Febuary. Ya know for the mostly wine and cheezers that go to the Superbowl.

Not unless global warming takes effect or we get a dome.

Next question.

No. And wine and cheesers don't go to Superbowls. Corporate types or die hards do. No in between.

I agree with everyone else. I don't ever see a Super Bowl coming here. They want warm weather locations or domes.

Nope-Never.

Besides the fact that we play outdoors and the NFL would never put its biggest game in a place where there could be freezing rain at kickoff. Charlotte is perceived as being not "big" enough to host.

Supposedly, it's too cold in Feb, and also there isn't enough high-class hotels to host all the people, from what I heard.

There's no perception to it. Charlotte does not have enough hotels to qualify. Jacksonville solved the problem by bringing in cruise ships (and seeing what a bust the Super Bowl was there will work against a smaller, untested city ever seeing another bowl).

Couple that with the fact that the average temp in Feb is well below the mandatory minimum, and we have 0 chance it happens.

Even if the weather wasn't a deterrent, Jacksonville took care of mid-level cities ever hosting a Super Bowl in the near future. New Orleans only does because it's a party city.

I say perceived because Charlotte does host NASCAR events at LMS and last I checked it can host well over twice what BoA can.

I tend to think that's just a lame excuse that the NFL uses for us because Charlotte isn't really a cold weather town but clearly isn't a warm weather location either.

NO, Miami, and Tampa are pretty much on a near rotation. San Diego's been kicked out until they get a new stadium. IIRC, Glendale (PHX) is now in there, and I'm not sure if Houston is or not.
