NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu predicts the Big Easy will be one of the stars of Super Bowl week. He also thinks the global spotlight will give the city a chance to show how far it has come since it was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The mayor and the host committee said Monday they want the city to get back in the rotation as a Super Bowl site. The last NFL title game to be played in New Orleans was in 2002. Sunday's game will mark the 10th time the game was held in the city. That ties it with Miami for hosting the most Super Bowl games.
Greater New Orleans Sports foundation president Jay Cicero says the city plans to bid for 2018 Super Bowl. That would also coincide with the 300th anniversary of the founding of New Orleans.
