Why Did They Choose Miami?
Hosting the Super Bowl in Miami is a terrific idea. But one important question remains: Why didn’t the city do it first?
It is one of the largest and most popular cities in the US and it has hosted a billion dollar monster in each of the last two Super Bowls. Now that the events are being staged in places such as New Orleans, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, Tampa, Detroit, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Seattle, Denver, Los Angeles, and many other places, why did they choose to host it in Miami?
One of the things you have to remember is that not everything matters in the world of sports. Having won the World Series, winning the World Cup, winning a basketball championship, playing in a basketball finals, winning the Premier League, and more are all great achievements, but they aren’t going to make anyone rich or make the city famous. The only thing that matters in sports is winning and the millions of fans that support them.
In today’s world the world has become so competitive that the best teams and players are finding it tough time securing their future. So instead of making money off of the huge football fanbase the owners and CEOs are focusing on being able to make their teams successful and gain fans.
Many would argue that Super Bowl is a competitive event that would make the city come alive. And if they did make it even better with all the modern technology such as cable and satellite, Wi-Fi, and much more then that would be another benefit. But if they chose to host the event in a place that doesn’t have any infrastructure for this type of event then the event would not be as successful.
More of the cities in America and many of the mega metros of the world are choosing to use their assets to help out the developing metros by investing in their infrastructure. These metro areas get great benefits from having sports teams because they are able to attract new businesses to their area. Having a bunch of football games in a place like Houston, which is already a very hot city that also happens to be the biggest city in Texas, is sure to draw in business from people who have recently moved to Houston.
So Miami might just be a big bounce for the Super Bowl this year but at least there’s hope for future years. So, if they want to enjoy watching the game but are going to be in a more technologically advanced world five or ten years from now then maybe they should pick a different city to host the big game. Still, if Miami is planning on hosting the next Super Bowl then why not look at other alternatives?
