We are just under 18 months removed from the first-ever cold weather outdoors venue Super Bowl in New Jersey. Unfortunately for football fans everywhere, the only thing cold in Super Bowl XLVIII was Denver’s offense during a 43-8 blowout at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.
However, Pittsburgh wants to join the mix of cold weather venues. The Steelers announced on Wednesday their intention to submit a bid to host Super Bowl LVII in Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field in 2023.
Between the grass and frosty conditions at Heinz Field, that Super Bowl would likely be a doozy if approved by The Shield™.
When the NFL tried the New Jersey Super Bowl in ’13, snow blanketed Met Life Stadium over a week prior to the game. However, by the time gameday rolled around temperatures rose to 50 degrees.
As a point of reference, the average high temperature in Pittsburgh in February is a brisk 39 degrees.
The winning city of the Super Bowl LVII will be announced in 2018.
