Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis was a huge success. Thus, Jim Irsay and the city want to host another one.

However, there's a small problem with Indy hosting another Super Bowl.

If hotel space was fine the first go around, and if the first go around was a success ("one of the best host/city performances ever"), why are more hotels needed to host again?

Whatever the reasons, it's likely more hotels will get built and Indianapolis will have another viable shot at hosting a Super Bowl. It's simply too much money and attention for the city to ignore. They will have some serious competition to content with though. The North Texas region will most certainly push to host another game even though the last one they had there was a disaster. Still, the Dallas area, and that stadium, is a big money maker.

At the end of the day, the Super Bowl is all about money for the NFL.
