They claim there are more than 30,000 "in the area":

The DNC contracted 15,000 rooms in the region for the convention:

10 years down the road maybe. Never hurts to start preparing early.

Hotel rooms aside, when is the last time the NFL has had a SuperBowl in a cold-weather city that didn't play in a dome? I'm not saying Charlotte is Green Bay but it isn't Arizona, southern California, or Miami either.

If there's ever a Super Bowl in BoA Stadium, I hope it's Eagles vs. Steelers just to watch the reactions when they're told to sit down and stop yelling.

the Superbowl will most definitely come to Charlotte... Not just because of the newly proposed stadium enhancements, or because as of August 5 2012: Charlotte, Raleigh, and Greenville(SC) are all in the top 10 fastest growing cities in the US, (Charlotte growing at a faster rate in the past decade than any other).

Everyone here knows that Charlotte (and the Carolina's in general), are full of transplants and half-backs. That is a perfect scenario for a Superbowl because there are more people not predominatly focused to one team. (Sad but true, the born and bred Panther fan is obvously a process that takes time).

But because- Pepsi, "born in the Carolinas", has struck a multi-year deal with the NFL and the Superbowl, and it's past success in previous superbowls has enabled Pepsi to have more say in the upcoming than any other...A few hotels here and there and I think it's a done deal.

it all just kind of adds up.

Having the DNC on charlotte's resume is going to help greatly. The city received tons of great pub for a successful convention.

I personally like the balls the city leaders are having to step up to become more of a "big time" city.

maybe our coaching staff and front office should take some pointers.
