The 2014 Super Bowl will be held in New Jersey and it won’t be indoors.

NFL owners have voted to put the championship game in the new $1.6 billion Meadowlands stadium that’s about to become home to the New York Jets and Giants. It does not have a roof and it will be February.

It is the first time the NFL has picked a known cold-weather site to hold the game outdoors. The 48th Super Bowl in East Rutherford, N.J., will almost certainly be colder than the Super Bowl’s record low of 39 degrees at kickoff. That came at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans in 1972.

Bid organizers say February temperatures in northern New Jersey are usually 24 to 40 degrees. Two Florida cities, Miami and Tampa, were the other bidders.
