Minneapolis will be hosting the 2018 Super Bowl, arguably the most anticipated game of the National Football League. An estimated one hundred thousand visitors from out of town will be attending, and the super bowl will bring an expected 324 million dollars.

Many football fanatics could not be more thrilled. “I’m so astonished that the NFL has decided on the always beautiful and sunny Minneapolis, Minnesota for the Super Bowl. It’s just absolutely extraordinary that we have been bestowed with this privilege. I literally can’t even right now,” said sophomore Devan Hunt.

Minneapolis was largely considered an underdog to host the 2018 Super Bowl due to its competitors that included Indianapolis and New Orleans. However, with a convincing video featuring Adrian Peterson, Lindsey Vonn, and Bud Grant, along with the new stadium designs, they beat out the competition.

Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges is reportedly planning on having a Super Bowl Boulevard. The Super Bowl Boulevard would feature an ice rink, half-pipe for snowboarding, and curling.

The main concern at the moment is tickets. Season ticket holders of the Vikings will have a better chance of getting tickets. Upon request, they will be put into a raffle. However, all tickets will be quite expensive, and it may be more economical to watch the game from home with friends.
