INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis sports and civic leaders are expected to announce they will seek to host the Super Bowl in 2018.

Gov. Mike Pence, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and Colts owner Jim Irsay plan to join other civic leaders in announcing their bid decision Friday morning at Lucas Oil Stadium, site of the 2012 Super Bowl.

Indianapolis was praised for its hosting of the Super Bowl last year and drew hundreds of thousands of football fans to the city. But the amount of business generated did not meet expectations in some areas of the city.

Indianapolis also will face new competition from other cities. Denver and Minneapolis leaders have both announced bids to host the 2018 game.
