MIAMI GARDENS, FL - The South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee is forming a sub-committee to look into stadium improvements to ensure that South Florida continues to be positioned to attract future Super Bowls, Pro Bowls, and other large scale sporting events. This group is comprised of a wide range of community leaders whose goal is to help keep the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl coming back to South Florida. The region has hosted 10 out of the last 44 Super Bowls.
South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman Rodney Barreto will lead the committee. This committee will meet on Thursday, January 7, 2010 at 12:30 pm at Dolphin Stadium (Gate G) to discuss the next steps related to stadium improvement. The Miami Dolphins will be asked to give an update on the stadium master planning process. Barreto, members of the Super Bowl Host Committee and Dolphins representatives met with Commissioner Goodell on Sunday to review the master plan and will give the sub-committee a report on that discussion.
On February 7, 2010, South Florida will host its record-breaking 10th Super Bowl and first Pro Bowl in 35 years. The country's largest one-day sporting event will pump hundreds of millions of dollars into South Florida's battered economy. With this year's Super Bowl, South Florida will have hosted two of the last four Super Bowls which is estimated to bring over $800 million dollars of economic impact into the community of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. South Florida lost its most recent bid for the 2013 Super Bowl last year. The NFL will decide the location of the 2014 Super Bowl in May.
