The New Meadowlands Stadium Co. said it is “mounting a full-scale campaign to capture the hosting rights” to the game after receiving permission from the NFL owners’ Super Bowl Advisory Committee.

Super Bowl XLVIII would be in Feb. 2014.
The committee approved the company’s application to bid despite the league’s traditional requirements that host sites have a minimum temperature of 50 degrees or a climate-controlled indoor stadium, the release said, calling the bid “a unique, once-only circumstance based on the opportunity to celebrate the new stadium.”
