INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis wants to host the Super Bowl in 2018 after winning praise for its handling of the NFL’s showcase event in 2012.

The city notified the NFL of its intentions Friday ahead of a news conference at which Gov. Mike Pence, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay and civic leaders made the decision public at Lucas Oil Stadium, site of the 2012 Super Bowl.

Indianapolis won broad praise for that effort, drawing hundreds of thousands of football fans to the city amid concerns about hosting the game and its many festivities in a “cold weather” location. Ballard said Friday the 2012 game is still having benefits for the city.

Other bids could come from Denver, New Orleans, Minneapolis, Atlanta and Miami.
