Breakfast: Road to Super Bowl LI begins


With 363 days to go, Houston is on the clock for Super Bowl 51. On Monday, the San Francisco Super Bowl Committee conducted its handoff to the Houston committee with an official ceremony, just one day after hosting Super Bowl 50 at Levi Stadium.

The Houston host committee members, led by chairman Rick Campo and president and CEO Sallie Sargent, mayor Sylvester Turner, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, were among the attendees at the handoff ceremony. Dr. Ellen Ochoa, Director of the Johnson Space Center, was also at the ceremony as NASA helped kick off off the road to Super Bowl LI from space.

The NFL awarded Houston its third Super Bowl bid, and second at NRG Stadium, in 2013.

Former Secretary of State James Baker and Camden Properties Chairman and CEO Richard Campo will lead the campaign to bring the Super Bowl back to Houston, it was announced today at a press conference.
