(INDIANAPOLIS) - The NFL's announcement of the finalists to host the 2016 and 2017 Super Bowls removes one possible obstacle to Indy's bid for the year after that.

Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Tuesday that San Francisco, Houston and South Florida are all in the running for Super Bowls 50 and 51.

Indiana Sports Corporation president Allison Melangton says the good news for Indy is the absence of any cold-weather cities. The NFL prefers not to bring the Super Bowl to cold-weather cities too frequently.

Minneapolis announced last month it would seek Super Bowl 52, 53 or 54, putting it in direct competition with Indianapolis for 2018.
