UNI-Dome to host Super Bowl

The UNI-Dome will host the Super Bowl!!!!!!!!!!!!

The French Fry is completely satire. Any resemblance to any real person is completely coincidental. The statements in the French Fry do not reflect the views of the Northern Iowan, nor do they reflect the views of the advertisements outside of this insert. 

We’ve seen the big game in The SuperDome, Sofi Stadium, and most recently Allegiant Stadium. It was only a matter of time before the UNI-Dome was selected to host the Super Bowl. 

This will be the first Super Bowl that the UNI-Dome has hosted since it opened in 1976. 

“The dome is an icon not only in the state of Iowa but around the world as well,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Godell. We want football fans to experience the electric atmosphere of this great stadium.”

Cedar Falls will become the lowest populated city to host a Super Bowl, with 40,000 residents, since Jacksonville, who had 145,000 residents at the time, hosted in 2005.

Just like the Panther football games, all students at the University of Northern Iowa will get free entry into the game by just scanning your student ID. TC and TK will be greeting all guests upon entry along with University President Mark Nook. 

Former Northern Iowa quarterback and two time NFL MVP Kurt Warner will be playing all-time quarterback for both teams that participate in the game. The Hall of Fame quarterback will be guaranteed his second Super Bowl ring regardless of who wins the game. 

The University of Northern Iowa and the National Football League also reached an agreement that the winner of the 2030 Super Bowl will have to play a second game versus the Northern Iowa football team to determine the true Super Bowl champion. 

In terms of hospitality, one team will be staying in Panther Village and another will be staying in Noehren Hall. You think visit days are bad in the dining hall? Both teams will  be eating all of their meals in Piazza during their stay. Better save up those dining dollars for the second week in February. 

The national anthem will be sung by 14 time grammy award winner Taylor Swift and nine-time Pro Bowler Travis Kelce. The halftime show will be performed by none other than famous composer Ludwig Van Beethoven. 

This will be an exciting time for the city of Cedar Falls and the University of Northern Iowa.

    This would be great to have an NFL team come to Iowa, just one thing isn’t Ludwig Van Beethoven. Dead
