The Big Easy is readying to make its bid on hosting the 2019 Super Bowl, and if they don't nail it, it may be awhile before the biggest sports spectacle in the world returns to Louisiana. Minneapolis and Houston have the next two Super Bowls locked up. 2020 the Super Dome is already signed on to host the college football national championship, and 2021 Mardi Gras and the Super Bowl land at the same time. So Tuesday's final presentation to the selection committee had better be a good one according to Jay Cicero, President and CEO of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation. And it ain't gonna be easy, NO!

"We're really facing tough competition this year with the new stadium in Atlanta, with a significantly renovated stadium in Miami, and Tampa being a traditionally good host of the Super Bowl.", Cicero says, while noting New Orleans still has a chance, because of, "The most number of hotel rooms within walking distance of the stadium, 20,000. The lowest cost of doing business of any other city, and because of the number of seats inside the Super Dome."

Cicero said letting New Orleans have the 2019 is win-win for everyone because those new stadiums will have a shot in the years to come. He also said his team has gone and refined their proposal after losing out to Minneapolis for the 2018 game. "We did go through our bid and make changes that we felt were geared towards what the owners may be thinking."
