We’ve known that the NFL can get just about anything it asks for from Super Bowl bidders — including the buildings to play them in.
But a report by the Minneapolis Star Tribune details the level of freebies the NFL requires to award a Super Bowl.
Among the items detailed in the 153-page report include police escorts for team owners in town for the event, 35,000 parking spaces, suites in the high-end hotels downtown and billboards. Of course, all for free.
The NFL didn’t comment on the report,, but with so many cities lined up to throw money at the NFL for the right to host the game — as well as building the stadiums to play them in — expect the NFL to ask for more and more until someone tells them no.
