 ATLANTA (AP) -Indianapolis has been awarded the 2012 Super Bowl, the fourth time a cold-weather city will host the NFL's championship game.
The city was a runner-up last year to Dallas, but Tuesday beat out Houston and Arizona for the game, which will be played Feb. 5, 2012 for the championship of the 2011 season. Part of the bid includes a pledge by the city to build a practice facility downtown that will be left in place for local residents to use.
The next two Super Bowls are in Tampa and in South Florida.
Of the 42 Super Bowls, the three played indoors in cold-weather cities were in 1982 and 2006 in Detroit and 1992 in Minneapolis. Indianapolis also plays indoors.
