In February 2014, the Super Bowl will be coming to the Meadowlands—and also, apparently, to Montclair.
Montclair has been picked as an official place to visit by the host committee of Super Bowl XLVIII, one of a handful of North Jersey towns and cities, according to The Montclair Times.
Besides Montclair, other NJ spots put forth include Jersey City, Hoboken, Newark, Ridgewood, and the Morristown/Florham Park area.
Super Bowl officials estimate 400,000 visitors will participate in the weeklong Super Bowl festivities, generating nearly $600 million in spending. Only 82,500 of those visitors will actually have a ticket to the game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. The rest will be spending their money around town at any number of festivities.
According to The Montclair Times, Mayor Robert Jackson is forming a committee to come up with interesting events for Super Bowl visitors to enjoy in Montclair.
