The NFL is set to announce the site of Super Bowl L on Tuesday.

Team owners are attending the league's Spring Meeting in Boston this week, with a vote on the highly anticipated game's location on the agenda.

With its new stadium scheduled to open in 2014, San Francisco is considered the clear front-runner to land Super Bowl L. Newly minted Levi's Stadium will include next-generation technology and amenities for fans including the ability to customize the stadium experience through Wifi Internet and custom mobile apps.

Super Bowl L will be a landmark game for the NFL, marking the 50th anniversary of the iconic American sporting event. The league believes showcasing a new modern stadium in Super Bowl L will demonstrate what the future holds for NFL fans.

Selecting a host city for the league's preeminent game is a deliberate process. Aspiring host cities present elaborate pitches to the NFL and team owners weigh a variety of factors in choosing a location. The Super Bowl is big business and the league is careful to leave no stone unturned.

Miami is also considered a contender to host the game but after plans to renovate Sun Life Stadium were halted last week, the city's bid for an eleventh Super Bowl game appears to be in jeopardy.

If the NFL awards Super Bowl L to San Francisco, it will be the first Super Bowl played in Calif. in 13 years.
