Finally the Southern States near domination of Super Bowl venues has been broken as the owners have voted for New York to host Superbowl 48 in 2014. The game will be played in the Meadowlands Stadium which is home to both the NY Giants and Jets and being an open stadium it will be a bit cold in February to say the least. In fact unless we have a freak weather episode it will be the coldest Super Bowl ever beating the record low kick off temp of 39 degree for the 1972 Super Bowl VI played in Tulane.
This should be a great experience and despite the cold demand for tickets will be huge. However playing the final in the cold is unlikely to be repeated any time soon as the NFL are introducing a 50 degree rule which will preclude non domed northern state stadiums unless we get a massive climate change.
