The NFL's showpiece has traditionally taken place in warm-weather cities or a domed stadium, but the New York Jets' and Giants' MetLife Stadium in New Jersey successfully hosted this year's event.
Don Smolenski told CSNPhilly.com: "I think Philadelphia has so much to offer in and of itself, as a city and as a region, that it would be a great host city.
"When the league evaluates Super Bowl bids, they take in so many factors. They take in the city. They take in the stadium, the facilities. They take in the practice facilities and what's available there. They take in the transportation, ease of getting in and getting out, whether that's airport or whether that's train.
"There's so much that goes into it. They look at that it in its entirety and they don't just necessarily focus on any one thing. I think that's true with New York, as you saw it being in multiple locations. They make it work."
Next year's Super Bowl will take play at the Arizona Cardinals' University of Phoenix Stadium.
