Indy announces plans to seek 2018 Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis will seek to host its second Super Bowl in 2018 after a highly praised debut in 2012.
 
The city notified the NFL of its intentions Friday ahead of a news conference at which Gov. Mike Pence, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay and civic leaders made the decision public at Lucas Oil Stadium, site of the 2012 Super Bowl.
 
Indianapolis won broad praise for its hosting of Super Bowl XVII and drew hundreds of thousands of football fans to the city. Ballard said Friday the 2012 game is still having benefits for the city and that Indianapolis "set the standard" for future bidders.
 
Indianapolis will face new competition for the 2018 game. Denver and Minneapolis leaders have both announced bids to host the 2018 game.
