TAMPA — It’s Hillsborough County’s turn to offer its symbolic support for Tampa’s bid to host a Super Bowl in the near future.

Following the lead of the Tampa City Council last month, county commissioners will vote Wednesday on whether to pen a letter to the NFL backing Tampa’s bid for the 2019 or 2020 Super Bowl.

Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is on the NFL’s short list of venues to hold the game those years.

Rob Higgins, executive director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, will present commissioners information about Tampa’s efforts to win the big game Wednesday at 10:45 a.m. at the Fredrick B. Karl County Center. 

Tampa last hosted a Super Bowl in 2009.
