BOSTON (CBS) – With the NFL Owners rewarding Super Bowls to San Francisco and Houston on Tuesday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft is making a pitch for a the big game to be played in New England some day.

“It would be great. I sort of like Boston/Providence,” Kraft told reporters in Boston on Tuesday. “This is where it all started. Right here.”

Kraft said he was a big supporter of Super Bowl XLVIII being held in New York/New Jersey next year, and if all goes well it could make it easier for his pitch for a Super Bowl at Gillette.

“We would love one day to hold it here if it’s a good experience there,” Kraft said. “We’re looking forward to seeing this experience in New York and New Jersey.”

“I hope we can be in the game,” said Kraft. “We like playing in cold weather.”

Having a Super Bowl at Gillette though would require cooperation between Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

“Part of what it will require is political people in Boston and Providence coming together so we could really have the right number of hotel rooms and have the support,” he said. “It would require cooperation from all of the political folks who would have to gather together and want this and come together, like they do in other parts of the country.”

“I’d rather be in the game than attract it here though, that’s going to be our priority,” said Kraft.

After the New York/New Jersey Super Bowl, the game will be held in San Francisco and Houston, so the earliest New England could see a big game of their own would be in 2018.

Indianapolis, which hosted Super Bowl XLVI, has already entered the bidding process for 2018.
