Transcript for NFL Suggesting Super Bowl Date Could Change
Christie. Counting down to the super bowl. When exactly will it take place? Of course, it's supposed to be next Sunday but for the first time ever the NFL is suggesting that date might be moved if it's too cold or snowy on super bowl Sunday. Gio Benitez with the details. Good morning. Reporter: This would be an unprecedented move. Football is an all-weather sport but the NFL says safety is a priority so instead of super bowl Sunday, we might be super bowl what day? Could we see a super bowl Friday or Saturday or even Monday? Believe it or not, it's possible. If a major storm threatens the big day. We don't have a crystal ball on weather but we're confident we'll be able to have our events. Reporter: We saw what happened Wednesday when more than a thousand workers shoveled out 13 inches of snow from the stands at metlife stadium. Our game is to experience the elements. It's part of what we do. It's part of football and I believe that's part of our history. Reporter: This morning, as we learn about a coming storm and 80,000 fans descending upon new Jersey, news that the NFL allows super bowl Sunday to be moved. Any time between next Friday and Monday. The super bowl is under siege because of mother nature and everybody's plans are all messed up. It sounds like something right out of the movies. Reporter: This will be the first outdoor cold weather super bowl in the NFL's history, so officials hope fans will take the weather giving out free hats, earmuffs, gloves, scarves, hand warmers, even a quarterback-style hand pocket. This is unprecedented stuff. The super bowl is the biggest sports event in the country and to think that the date could move because of a snowstorm but that's possible. That's literally what we're talking about here. Reporter: NFL officials say they have hundreds of trucks to clear any snow and as much as 60,000 tons of salt for the roads but this morning they still believe the super bowl will be played on Sunday. Let's hope or get those super bowl parties planned early. Let's get to the expert. All on you, super bowl or not Sunday. I'm going super bowl. It's going to happen. It looks like it's getting more mild. On Sunday itself. Yeah, because at this point -- this is far off more mild like upper 30s, some rain possibly. Just be careful. Hold on, remember, we've got nine days to go so I don't put my name or gamble on anything seven days out. Seven day, five days. You text me on Saturday night and I will give you the forecast. You know what, you're smart, ginger. Thank you for that, ginger.
