Super Bowl XLIV will be the 44th annual edition of the
Super Bowlin American football, and the 40th annual championship game of the modern-era National Football League(NFL). The game will be played at Dolphin Stadiumin Miami Gardens, Florida, the 10th time a Super Bowl will have played in the Miamimetro area, at a date to be officially announced by league. The game will be televised in the United States on CBS, which will celebrate coverage of its 50th NFL season (1956-93; 1998-present). It also broadcast the most recent Super Bowl held in Miami, Florida(XLI).
This will be the first Super Bowl telecast after the U.S. digital transition on
February 17 2009.
March 23, 2005, the league originally voted to have the City of New York host the game contingent on the completion of the proposed West Side Stadium, to be built for the New York Jets, by 2008.ref|NYCbid
After New York State government officials in June refused to approve $300 million for the stadium, the NFL in August decided to reopen the bidding for the game's site.ref|reopenBid The league then decided to consider the failed candidates for
Super Bowl XLIII: Atlanta, Georgia, Houston, Texas, and Miami, Florida. The league eventually selected Miami on October 6.ref|miamiWins
With Tampa as the host of
Super Bowl XLIII, Super Bowl XLIV will mark the third time that consecutive Super Bowls would be played in the same state. Super Bowls II and III were both played at the Miami Orange Bowl. Super Bowls XXI and XXII were both played in California: XXI at Pasadena's Rose Bowl Stadiumand XXII at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium.
Miami will become the first city to host two Super Bowls designated as a
National Security Special Event(NSSE). In the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, every Super Bowl since Super Bowl XXXVIhas been designated as an NSSE. Super Bowl XLI was Miami Gardens's first Super Bowl designated as an NSSE.
