Perfect Weather At New Meadowlands Stadium
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — For those worried about the cold-weather Super Bowl in northern New Jersey in 2014 — Fuggettabattit!
The weather was perfect for football at New Meadowlands Stadium on Sunday — sunny, with a high of 46 and winds out of the northwest at 10 to 15 mph.
By awarding the game to the new stadium, the NFL waived its rule requiring host cities for the Super Bowl to have an average temperature of 50 degrees or a dome as a bid requirement.
League owners voted last May to play the game in the $1.6 billion stadium co-owned by the Jets and Giants, risking the possibility of what might be first cold weather championship for the world’s biggest football game.
