Seattle considering Super Bowl bid

The Seattle Sports Commission says that it would consider bidding to host the Super Bowl in the future.

The Seattle Sports Commission has said that it has not ruled out launching a bid to host the Super Bowl in the future.

The city made a string of bids to hold the event at the Seattle Seahawks' former Kingdome home, but has not applied to host the game since the NFC West side moved to the open air CenturyLink Field in 2002.

The commission's executive director Ralph Morton told the Tacoma News Tribune: "We are trying to position ourselves so we can put it in when the time is right. Everything needs to align just right.

"It's going to come down to the Seahawks and [owner] Paul Allen [wanting to place a bid]. And the community will need to step up in a major way. It will be a significant effort, not something to be taken lightly.

"70% of the seats [at CenturyLink Field] are covered, and it's a great football experience. I'm biased, but I think we'd knock it out of the park."

The Seahawks play in next weekend's Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
