All the hard work put in by everyone was worth it after Sunday night's spectacle. The South Florida weather did not disappoint and the scenery was perfect for the biggest stage on the planet. Simply put, we could not ask for anything better.
The Host Committee would like to thank all those that could make this happen, including our sponsors and partners that supported us every step of the way. The events we hosted leading up to Super Bowl Sunday were a great success and built up much hype en route to the big game. Our staff members are grateful for all the help.
And while Super Bowl will not be coming back for at least the next three years, we are proud to have hosted a record-breaking 10 Super Bowls. Perhaps in the future we can bring back Super Bowl to the NFL's favorite destination for their championship game, right here in South Florida.
