Mission Statement
As host to Super Bowl XLIII, we will ensure the readiness of the Tampa Bay region, coordinate the numerous logistics involved with the event and fulfill all obligations to the National Football League.

By successfully doing so, the image of the Tampa Bay region, as well as the entire State of Florida, will be enhanced by the positive impression made on the participants, spectators and viewers of this event, and we will position our area as a premier site for future Super Bowls.

As a community, we will take advantage of the opportunity to host this event by expanding the regional economy by an estimated $300 million through tourism that will create jobs; effectively market our destination; encourage community involvement; contribute to local business development and add to the overall quality of life of our residents. We will conduct our business in an ethical, honest and fair manner and operate in an environment that is rewarding and exciting for our volunteers and professional staff.
