ATLANTA (WISH) – Indianapolis will bid to host the 2018 Super Bowl Tuesday afternoon.

The city hosted the 2012 Super Bowl between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots.

Groups from Indianapolis, New Orleans and Minneapolis will make presentations in Atlanta and then there will be a vote.

WISH-TV has learned Indianapolis will go last in those presentations, and will present at around 2:40 p.m.

The bid will emphasize Indianapolis’ past success as a Super Bowl host, and unveil a new Legacy Project that will emphasize improving safety and youth football.

Former Indianapolis Colt Jeff Saturday will make that part of the presentation.

“I’m going to go out, and do the best I absolutely can, but when you represent your city, state, community, your area outside of that, there’s a level of weight on that,” Saturday said.

When Saturday is finished speaking, Colts owner Jim Irsay will then speak. He will address all of the other owners, and then there’s the vote. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
