The 2016 Super Bowl will mark the first time since 1976 that the game’s number does not include the Roman numeral “X”. In four years, the fiftieth Super Bowl in league history will take place, creating an awkward situation for the NFL in trying to market Super Bowl “L”.
Two year later, Super Bowl LII will be on deck and the Denver Broncos would like to host it, according to the Denver Post.
“One goal that NFL fanatic Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has for his city is to one day bring a Super Bowl to the Mile High City, and steps are being made to do just that.
“The Denver Broncos and Visit Denver in late August submitted an application to the National Football League’s Super Bowl Advisory Committee to bid to host the Super Bowl in 2018, 2019 or 2020.
‘”We will pursue it along with Visit Denver,” Hancock said in a meeting with The Denver Post editorial board on Wednesday. “I think Denver would be head and shoulders above any other city to compete to host a Super Bowl.”‘
