Houston looks ahead to Super Bowl LI
We are only two days away from Super Bowl 49. Even though we are over 700 days away from the Super Bowl here in the Bayou City, plans are already underway.
City officials are not wasting any time getting ready for the big game two years from now.
The Houston Super Bowl Host Committee is in Phoenix right now observing events, going to meetings, and taking notes. We sat down with the president of that committee, Sallie Sargent, who says they will be looking at way to make our Super Bowl even better.
"The most important thing for us is to see what we learn from what they do and what they don't do and how it applies to our city," Sargent said.
The event not only brings in top athletes but plenty of celebrities as well. Sargent says it is important that many of those celebrities have a strong connection to Houston.
"Lets just say we certainly have a Beyonce at the top of our list," says Sargent.
In 2013, the NFL picked Houston over Miami to host Super Bowl 51. Event organizers say the battle red colors represent our city's passion for the game. It seemed the NFL liked our Latin theme of Super Bowl El Centro, but that name has now been swapped for the English version, Super Bowl Central. The anglicized change, Sargent says the thought to be more inclusive.
"We want to be mindful of our entire community here in Houston, so we are going to find a name that really represents us well," says Sargent.
Super Bowl Central specifically refers to the area of downtown where everything prior to game day will take place, near Discovery Green from Minute Maid Park to Toyota Center.
This will be the third Super Bowl in Houston.
