Super Bowl LII will be hosted by Minnesota in 2018

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Start planning accordingly, Eagles fans.

According to multiple reports, Super Bowl LII (2018) will be held in Minnesota. New Orleans was also in final consideration and had never previously lost a SB bid (10 for 10) until today.

Minnesota will be opening their new stadium in 2016 and it will be fully enclosed so don't expect a true "cold weather" Super Bowl.

The Philadelphia Eagles were not involved in a Super Bowl bid this year, but according to reports from January 2014 they very well could be in the future. Some have suggested that the Eagles' enthusiastic efforts to renovate Lincoln Financial Field have been done with a Super Bowl bid in mind. The Eagles are increasing their seating capacity and installing new Panasonic video board screens among other stadium updates.

Eagles Eagles Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Lurie is on record saying he will push for a bid.

Smolenski's comments echoed those of Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie in July during the NFL's owners meetings in Phoenix. "I will. Yes, I will," Lurie told reporters then when asked if he would pursue a Super Bowl.

As previously discussed, there are a lot of positives and negatives to hosting a Super Bowl. With that in mind, if these poll results are any indication, it seems Eagles fans are in favor of Philly hosting the big game one day.
