SANTA CLARA (CBS / AP) – San Francisco, Houston and South Florida are bidding for the 2016 and 2017 Super Bowls.

NFL owners will vote next May between San Francisco—the 49ers are building a new stadium in Santa Clara—and South Florida for the 50th Super Bowl in 2016. The loser of that race will then compete with Houston for hosting the 2017 game.

Several owners have said a return to SunLife Stadium in Miami would require major upgrades to the building, and commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday that the Dolphins “feel that (renovations) are a large part of their bid.”

South Florida has hosted the most Super Bowls, 10, the last in 2010. Houston has done two, the most recent in 2004.
