Lambeau Field – Capacity 79,594
Located in Titletown, USA, how can you not have a Super Bowl here? The NFL has approved of one cold-weather Super Bowl and that will probably be the deciding factor for future Super Bowls in the cold. A Super Bowl Lambeau leap though should really be enough incentive to have a Super Bowl in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Average February temperature: 13-28
Arrowhead Stadium – Capacity 76,416
Probably one of the most underrated stadiums in the NFL. The fans at Arrowhead take advantage of the shape of the stadium, their cheers reverberating back and forth between the two sides of the field. This is one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL and has drawn in more than 80,000 fans.
Average February temperature: 26-45
Sports Authority Field at Mile High – Capacity 76,125
The air runs thin, you can see every breath you take, mountains on one side, downtown Denver on the other. Does that not sound like a great Super Bowl could be played here? Watching Peyton Manning and the Broncos play Joe Flacco and the Ravens in the AFC Championship last season felt like a Super Bowl environment.
Average February temperature: 18-49
CenturyLink Field – Capacity 67,000
Quite possibly the loudest stadium ever built, ever. Seahawks fans take pride in how loud they can get and the roof sections are to thank. A beautiful city and a beautiful stadium, there is no reason that Seattle cannot host the Super Bowl.
Average February temperature: 37-50
Edward Jones Dome – Capacity 66,965
The name says it all, DOME. Weather is not an issue, so the Super Bowl should have been played here by now. The city of St. Louis has the Gateway Arch and truly is a magnificent city. Every NFL city should host a Super Bowl; might as well start here. Average February temperature: 70
(The game is indoors!)
New Vikings Stadium – Capacity 65,000
There is no doubt in my mind that the NFL will grant Minneapolis a Super Bowl. After all, who doesn’t like a brand new and sparkling stadium? This might end up being one of the most beautiful stadiums not only in the NFL but in all of pro sports.
Average February temperature: 13-29
Ohio Stadium – Capacity 102,329
As a Buckeye fan through and through, I cannot leave out the greatest college football stadium ever built. Host to “The Game” every other November, The Horseshoe has no problems filling it’s seats and more in cold weather. One of the largest capacity stadiums in the U.S.
Average February temperature: 22-42
