DENVER -- Denver has submitted an application to bid for the Super Bowl.
The Denver Post reports the Broncos and Visit Denver submitted an application in late August to the NFL's Super Bowl Advisory Committee to bid to host the Super Bowl in 2018, '19 or '20. Visit Denver CEO and President Richard Scharf calls it a very preliminary step.
The NFL is expected to select next year which cities are eligible to submit an official bid.
Mayor Michael Hancock spoke about Denver's application Wednesday in a meeting with The Denver Post editorial board.
