Announced by the league today, the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana will play host to the 2013 Super Bowl. On a personal note, I am more than thrilled that the owners in the league decided this in a vote... the city of New Orleans is fighting a seemingly winless battle to reinject life back into their struggling post-Katrina economy. Although this Super Bowl is 4 years down the road, the city will immediately start seeing bumps in local revenues, and should provide a boost in moral for the locals.
The schedule of future Super Bowls looks like this:
2010: Miami, FL
2011: Arlington, TX (Dallas/Ft. Worth Metro)
2012: Indianapolis, IN
2013: New Orleans, LA
