The Glendale Arizona city council voted 5-2 on Thursday to support a regional bid for the 2015 Super Bowl, according to Cecilia Chan of the Arizona Republic.
Two councilwomen vigorously opposed the measure because of the questionable financial benefit of having a Super Bowl in town, with one calling the NFL’s demands increasingly “invasive.”
Ultimately, the argument didn’t fly.
The Host Committee from Arizona has to submit their bid by August 1 and Glendale figures to be one of the favorites along with Tampa Bay to land the next announced Super Bowl, which could come around October 1.
Dallas is expected host again when Hell freezes over.
