With Super Bowl 56 (LVI) approaching this Sunday, reports emerged that Tottenham were still looking into the idea of getting a Super Bowl staged at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. As we first reported back in August of 2018, THFC were looking into the idea
Also, four years ago, the mayor of London himself declared his city’s ambitions to land both a Super Bowl and a NFL franchise. So this is a thing, indeed.

So with that in mind, how realistic or unrealistic is this initiative? Simply put, this is a very big long shot, with the odds very much against them.
It’ll be an uphill climb to say the least.
As you can see below, the next few Super Bowls are already set.

London calling? I guess we’ll see. But certainly don’t rule it out completely, at this point.
Is hosting a Super Bowl good or bad for a city?
“A mega sporting event can help the host city if the event is properly managed from a financial standpoint,” said Mark Moore, Associate Professor at East Carolina University.
“The event can generate prestige, increased publicity, and a feeling of goodwill in the hosted city.”
