Following the choice to put Super Bowl XLVIII in a cold weather city for the first time, five NFL franchise owners have claimed that they would like the footballing extravaganza to come to their stadiums.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been discussing his desire to take the Super Bowl to new places which may have before now been considered unsuitable hosts. 

This should be considered with a fair bit of caution, its not like Goodell has come out and said that one day the Super Bowl will take place in Buffalo.

In fact, the Commissioner was very specific on what kind of features any new host city would have to have in order to be awarded the game.

He said: "The ability to host a Super Bowl is more and more complicated, more and more complex, because of the size of the event and the number of events. So the infrastructure’s incredibly important.

 "We’re well over 30,000 hotel rooms needed even to host the Super Bowl."

Goodell went on to reveal that there are in fact places that won't even be considered to host the event due to their lack of infrastructure.

Saying: "there’s some communities that may not even be able to do it from an infrastructure standpoint, but we know the passion’s there.”

So sorry places like Green Bay, Buffalo or Cincinnati, but it appears that there may not be a Super Bowl in your future.

But who are the cities who have a genuine chance of hosting their first ever Super Bowl?
