The Miami Dolphins will not get public funding to renovate Sun Life Stadium, but a committee is still hoping to be chosen to host Super Bowl 50 or 51.
On Thursday morning, the South Florida Super Bowl Bid Committee will announce details of the final package that it will submit to the NFL.
A release from the committee ahead of the announcement said that the package "gives Miami-Dade its best shot at winning one of the Super Bowls." It added that being selected to host the game would "generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity for the County and South Florida."
Super Bowls 50 and 51 are scheduled to be played in 2016 and 2017, respectively. The locations of the next two Super Bowls have already been decided. The 2014 game will be played in the New York area, followed by the Phoenix area.
The Florida legislature's decision not to approve a resolution that would have provided public funding to the team could hurt South Florida's chances. The Dolphins were hoping to complete $400 million dollars worth of renovations to try to sway the NFL to choose the Miami Gardens stadium for one of the games.
The league warned the team that major improvements were needed after it hosted the 2010 game.
