If you follow where the Super Bowl is always played each year you may have noticed that it’s always the same handful of cities. Miami, New Orleans, LA, this year is Tampa. Notice a trend yet?
Turn out the NFL actually has a policy against holding Super Bowl games in stadiums that have a climate of less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The only exception being if is an enclosed stadium or dome. Which I totally get. You don’t want the biggest, most important game of the year being played in a blizzard or 10 below temps. Have to have that sun and fun!
Now, I’m not sure what happened a few years back when they had the game in New York at MetLife. Maybe they took a gamble on the weather forecast.
