HOUSTON - Tuesday is decision day in the bid battle for the Super Bowl.

Members of Houston's Super Bowl bid committee were still hard at work Monday evening, fine tuning their presentation to the NFL's 32 owners.

They invited Local 2 into their war room for one of their final strategy sessions.

"We feel really good. Excited. Confident," said committee chairman Ric Campo.

San Francsisco and South Florida are vying for Super Bowl 50.

The loser of that bid will compete against Houston for Super Bowl 51.

Tuesday afternoon's presentation will take place at 1:15pm Central time and will last 15 minutes.

With $2.6 billion in development and one of the strongest economies in the country, the Bayou City is considered a favorite to win the bid for Super Bowl 51 in 2017.

Houston already has a permanent place to host events and festivals in Discovery Green and plans are underway for brand new hotel in Downtown Houston.

"The energy we have in Houston is just unbelievable. People will do just about anything for anybody. A can do spirit that electrifies the city and I think that is just the biggest thing.", said Campo.

The stadium itself is one of the biggest factors in the bidding process and that's why Reliant is always being updated.
