PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to turn the 2023 Super Bowl into a home game.
The franchise submitted an application at the owner's meetings in May for the right to bid on the 2023 Super Bowl. It's the first time the Steelers - whose six Super Bowl victories are the most in the NFL - and city have sent in an application to host the title game. The NFL will not open up the actual bidding for the game until 2018. The vote on who will host the 2023 Super Bowl won't come until 2019.
Team president Art Rooney II met with Pittsburgh leaders on Wednesday to provide an update and also caution that things remain in the exploratory stage.
