NFL team owners today voted for the city of Minneapolis to host Super Bowl LII in 2018.

Voting, which took place at the annual owner's spring meeting in Atlanta, was between New Orleans, Indianapolis, and Minneapolis.

Tuesday saw all three groups present to the league their bids to the 32 owners with the hope of securing the right to host the 52nd end of season extravaganza but it seems like the Minneapolis team did the best job to persuade voters.

New Orleans has recent Super Bowl hosting experience, with the Mercedez Superdome having played host to the pivotal game twice in the past six years and the game taking place in the city on ten previous occasions but the league's hierarchy were clearly impressed with the Minneapolis pitch.

The city has only hosted the Super Bowl once previously and the 2018 event will see the Super Bowl played in the new Minnesota Vikings stadium which is due for completion in 2016.
