Filed under: Subject Categories |

Former mayoral candidate Sam Katz is leading a group of forward-thinking Philadelphians who want to bring the Super Bowl to the City in 14 years.
Members of the nonprofit group – USA250, Inc – want to bring the showpiece football game – as well of many other events to Philadelphia – to help the nation mark its 250th anniversary in 2026.
USA250,Inc. announced today, Katz, who was recently appointed by Governor Tom Corbett  to the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority, or PICA, as its CEO.

Although the anniversary will take place 14 years from now, USA250, Inc. launched its community planning for America’s 250th Birthday now to “maximize prospects for success,” according to its founder and chairperson, Andrew Hohns.
“The USA250 project is gaining strong momentum,” Hohns said. “We have received positive feedback from everyone we talk to about the role Philadelphia can play in celebrating our nation’s 250th anniversary, and likewise the role that the 250th anniversary can play in continuing the very strong momentum for the City in terms of developing into its full potential.”
USA250, Inc. will hold a kick-off party on March 15, 2012 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Union League of Philadelphia, 140 South Broad Street. /Rory McGlasson
