In just five years, New York will host the Super Bowl. This past Wednesday, the National Football League owners announced that the 2010 event will be held at the New York Sports and Convention Center on Manhattan’s West Side. The stadium is set for a 2009 unveiling. The 2010 Super Bowl will bring great revenue to New York as it does for any place that holds it.
“Today is a landmark day, and the 2010 Super Bowl in the New York Sports and Convention Center will be a historic event. We’re thrilled about this announcement. I want to thank the NFL membership for granting the New York Jets and the City and State of New York the opportunity to showcase this week-long, mega-event in the greatest City in the world. The Super Bowl is more than a football game. The Super Bowl will have a tremendous impact on the local economy, and generate revenue for the community.”
Jets Owner Woody Johnson
