The NFL officially announced the 52nd Super Bowl LII will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on February 4, 2018. This will be only the second Super Bowl held in Minneapolis, about 25 years after Super Bowl XXVI in 1992.
The event will take place in Minnesota’s new U.S. Bank Stadium, the new home of the Minnesota Vikings that’s expected to open on July 23, 2016. In fact, the turf is just being put down in a major milestone for the venue.
“Super Bowl LII is our opportunity to showcase Minnesota to the world; all that life in the Bold North has to offer, and our incredible hospitality,” said Maureen Hooley Bausch, CEO of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee.
“This is a team effort, and we want all of Minnesota to be involved – whether you open your business to visitors, volunteer, or bring your family to join in the festivities. So mark your calendar for February 4, 2018,” added Bausch.
Minnesota was awarded Super Bowl LII for the finale of the 2017/2018 season two years ago in 2014.
