SAN FRANCISCO –- The 49ers are building for another run at the Super Bowl.
Team president Al Guido, appearing Wednesday on SportsTalk Live said it is a realistic goal to bring back the Super Bowl to Levi’s Stadium no later than 2024.
“I look at Arizona as a benchmark,” Guido told host Guy Haberman. “They did two Super Bowls in seven years. I think if we can do two in 10 years, that would be really great for the city.
“We have the 2019 college football national championship game, so we can't do it then. But we're really going to be putting in for Super Bowls 56, 57 and 58 is what we're going to be bidding on.”
Guido said there have already been conversations with local officials about how to improve on Super Bowl 50, which was generally seen as a success in February.
“(F)rom an official perspective, we're going to respond to an RFP (Request for Proposal) that gets sent out from the NFL in the next 18 to 24 months,” Guido said. “So we'll be garnering the hotels you need, the convention center space, working with our partners down at the Sharks, at the SAP Center to get all the media, working with our folks up at the city.
"So it's really a long process to get these things under wraps because it takes about 12 months to get everything under contract.”
