Super Bowl organizer Frank Supovitz is leaving the NFL to start an event management and consulting firm.
The Minnesota Vikings spent more than a decade campaigning for public funding for a new stadium, finally winning the long, arduous struggle for state approval last spring.
An NFL official says the Super Bowl next February in Indianapolis could be moved back one week if the 2011 season is delayed.
The NFL wants this year's Super Bowl to go smoothly.
With all that snow blocking roads, closing airports and even forcing a game to be postponed in Philadelphia, it's easy to wonder how the NFL and the Big Apple would handle a blizzard in February 2014. You know, when the Super Bowl is in town.
"We, of course, recognized that the 2014 Super Bowl would be played in winter conditions when the New York/New Jersey bid was accepted" and that a storm could hit any time in the lead up to the game, says Frank Supovitz, the NFL's senior vice president for events.
"The entire Super Bowl bid was a two-state proposal, so all states and municipalities that host major activities and venues, including the game, practice facilities, major social events, the media center, airports, and others, will be involved in the master planning for all aspects of the event, including weather," Supovitz says.
