Will the Super Bowl return to Indianapolis in 2018?

NFL owners will hear final bids presented by representatives from Indianapolis, New Orleans and Minneapolis during their meeting Tuesday, May 20 in Atlanta.

Lucas Oil Stadium and Indianapolis organizers were widely praised for their handling of the 2012 Super Bowl between the New York Giants and New England Patriots.

Indianapolis also will play host to the 2015 NCAA Final Four.

New Orleans has always been considered a prime Super Bowl site with its food, music, party atmosphere and warm weather while Minneapolis is looking to put a stamp on its new $1 billion stadium, which will open in 2016.

Former Colts All-Pro Jeff Saturday will help make the Indianapolis presentation.
