Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Although having the 2018 Super Bowl in Minnesota is a blessing for our economy (about hundreds of millions of dollars will come in when it comes to economic activity) the planning part could put a damper in the private sector's pockets.

The Minnesota Super Bowl Committee says they did not agree to all of the NFL's Super Bowl bid specifications, and they add that the competitive bid remains private.

The committee will participate in fundraising efforts; however, the Super Bowl Committee states that the private sector will cover any additional costs for the Super Bowl because the city and state will not be responsible for additional public costs (increased security, public infrastructure, police, etc...).

About 100,000+ people are expected to visit Minnesota for the Super Bowl.
