The state of Missouri’s first Super Bowl Task Force meeting will take place at noon Monday at Arrowhead Stadium.
The group’s task: Bring the big game to town.
The task force was formed in response to a resolution that state Sen. Paul LeVota, an Independence Democrat, sponsored.
“I can think of no better place to host the Super Bowl than Kansas City, the best football town in America,” LeVota said in a statement. “We’ve got incredible fans and a city more than capable of handling such a huge event.”

Not only would the fans love it, but the economic impact would be enormous, he said.
LeVota pointed out that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has indicated the league is open to hosting Super Bowls in cold-weather cities.
