INDIANAPOLIS Indianapolis is going all out to get the 2018 Super Bowl.
Shortly after NFL owners announced Tuesday that Indy, Minneapolis and New Orleans are the finalists for the league's marquee game, two members from Indy's bid committee told reporters they will raise the bar from the 2012 game, which drew rave reviews.
Indy and New Orleans have hosted the last two Super Bowls. New Orleans is hoping to get the game to help celebrate the 300th anniversary of the city's founding. Minneapolis last hosted the game in 1992 and is opening a new stadium.
Bid committee vice chairwoman Cathy Langham said potential donors would now be contacted in an effort to raise $30 million in private funding before the formal presentation in May.
