Think your city has what it takes to host the Super Bowl? The NFL may not agree.

Over the weekend, the Minneapolis Star-Tribunerevealed the steps a city needs to take to play host to the big game, and needless to say, they’re rather lengthy and mildly absurd in nature.

The 153-page document includes all of the expected requests, such as a minimum of 70,000 fixed seats, luxury boxes and enough hotel rooms throughout the city. But there are plenty of non-game related caveats as well, including having reservations at two “top quality” bowling lanes and three “top quality” 18-hole golf courses in near proximity to the host venue.
