Denver Mayor Michael Hancock arrived in New York on Thursday afternoon to root for the Broncos and campaign to bring the Super Bowl to Colorado next year.

Mr. Hancock appeared on “The Colbert Report,” “Today” and local Denver shows broadcasting from radio row inside the Super Bowl media center in Manhattan, The Denver Post reported.

“I’m here to root for the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl,” he said Friday. “We also want to bring the Super Bowl to Denver.”

“We have the infrastructure to host this event in the future. We have the hotel rooms, the transportation and the stadiums that would make it work. We’ve hosted events of this scale in the past and have been successful,” he said.

Mr. Hancock might have his competition cut out for him, now that more and more cold-weather cities with open-air stadiums will attempt to secure the game, NBC Sports said.
