Dolphins Lose Out On Super Bowl Bid

The league named Indianapolis, Minnesota and New Orleans as the three finalists to host Super Bowl 52 in 2018 on Tuesday, rebuffing efforts by the Dolphins to bring the game back here for a record 11th time.
Florida was shut out completely, as Tampa was also told, “Thanks, but no thanks,” by the NFL.
“We’re obviously disappointed that our effort to bring the Super Bowl back to South Florida wasn’t successful,” said Tom Garfinkel, Miami Dolphins president and CEO. “We’ve had 10 Super Bowls here because it’s an ideal market to host big events, but we’re now facing more intense competition from multiple modernized facilities. We will continue to work hard to attract big events — and their corresponding economic impact and job creation — to the state of Florida.”
