Miami stadium bill fails, boosting Houston's Super Bowl bid

Posted May 3, 2013

Houston’s chances to host Super Bowl LI may have gotten a boost Friday when a referendum for public renovations to Miami's Sun Life Stadium was rejected.

The city of Houston’s chances to host Super Bowl LI may have gotten a major boost on Friday evening.

According to the Miami Herald, a referendum for public renovations to the Miami Dolphins’ Sun Life Stadium was rejected by the Florida state legislature in Tallahassee. Either Miami or San Francisco will be competing against Houston for the right to host Super Bowl LI in 2017.

NFL owners will vote on the sites of Super Bowl L and LI at their meetings in Boston from May 20-22. San Francisco and Miami are competing to host Super Bowl L. Houston will face the loser in the voting for Super Bowl LI.

The Dolphins were seeking up to $289 million in public funding for renovations to Sun Life Stadium, which was built in 1987. San Francisco will open $1.2 billion Santa Clara Stadium in 2014. The Texans’ Reliant Stadium was built in 2002.

Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair said in February that he was optimistic about Houston’s chances to host the 51st Super Bowl. Houston hosted Super Bowl XXXVIII between the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers at Reliant Stadium in 2004. Camden Properties Chairman and CEO Richard “Ric” Campo is the chairman of Houston’s current Super Bowl committee.
