The 2019 and 2020 Super Bowls will go to cities not named Kansas City

New, comments

I did not think the Kansas City Chiefs were even a consideration for any of the upcoming Supers Bowls and this week's news confirms they're not. Per reports from the owners meetings, the NFL is considering Miami, New Orleans, Tampa and Atlanta for the 2019 and 2020 Super Bowls.

The reason we're even talking about a Kansas City Super Bowl is because Clark Hunt has been talking about it. Hunt connected the Chiefs giving up a home game to play in London (something fans don't like) to a Super Bowl in Kansas City (something fans do like).

The Chiefs confusing messaging on this topic has led to many fans thinking a KC Super Bowl was guaranteed to happen or even likely. Truthfully, I can't see how Kansas City s even close to being in the conversation for a Super Bowl. Does KC have the public transportation for this? Are there enough hotel rooms? How many do we need? Are Super Bowls big money losers for cities?

I can't help but feel we're being sold something when the Chiefs talk about a Kansas City Super Bowl. Kansas City seems so far away from hosting a Super Bowl or even being in the discussion that I don't even know what we're talking about anymore. How about hosting the Draft in KC? Or a playoff game? I say all this just so that you have the right expectations and aren't thinking a Super Bowl is something likely to happen.
