The National Football League has designated Tampa Bay and Arizona as the two final competitors vying to land the 2015 Super Bowl.
League spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed Thursday the NFL has informed the Bay area and Glendale, Ariz., they are the only two regions still in the running for the next available Super Bowl. Both suitors are required to submit formal bids before league owners vote in October at the NFL's fall meetings.
If Tampa is chosen, this would be the fifth Super Bowl for the city. Tampa's first Super Bowl was in 1984.
