Fundraising For City's Super Bowl Bid On Track

3/11/2008

Fundraising for Indy’s bid to bring the 2012 Super Bowl to the city is going well, according to the businessman who heads the bid committee.

Mark Miles says a business advisory committee has been going back to each of the companies that committed a total of $25 million a year ago for the 2011 Super Bowl.

Miles said they held a Town Hall meeting Monday at NCAA headquarters and discussed building a Super Bowl Village downtown to create a party atmosphere in the days leading up to the game.

Others at the meeting suggested making it a “green” Super Bowl, organizing it in a way that’s environmentally aware and pesents Indianapolis as an increasingly- green city.

Miles says he likes Indy’s chances of getting the game because of the city’s experience in handling other major events, like the Indy 500 and NCAA Final Four.
