If it’s good enough for the NFL to play the Super Bowl under the threat of a blizzard and/or the reality of an ice storm, it should be good enough to stage it in a place where it almost always rains.
Q13 FOX in Seattle reports that the Seahawks have expressed interest in hosting the event, via the submission of initial paperwork to the league office.
The viability of the possibility isn’t known. But the fact that the league will in two years play the game in the open air of northern New Jersey puts in play any city that has the infrastructure to accommodate the influx of humans for a full week.
The 70,000-seat CenturyLink Field would be large enough, and with a Meadowlands-style waiver of the average February temperature requirement of 50 degrees the climate will suffice, at an average of 44.
The next step in the process will be for the Super Bowl Advisory Committee to invite the Seahawks to submit an official bid.
The next three Super Bowls will be played in New Orleans, New York/New Jersey, and Arizona. The location of the 50th Super Bowl likely will be determined later this year.
