ESPN.com is reporting that the New York/New Jersey area has been awarded the 2014 Super Bowl.

According to ESPN:

The official tag line of the New York/New Jersey bid was “Make Some History,” and it did. It will be the first open-air stadium in a cold-weather region to host a Super Bowl. In their official presentation to the owners, the representatives from the Giants and Jets highlighted some of the most memorable cold-weather games in history.

It could be the last cold play for a long time, as the league made this a one-time exemption to its 50-degree rule.

Before arriving at the New Meadowlands Stadium, the Super Bowl will be held in: Dallas (2011), Indianapolis (2012) and New Orleans (2013).
