    The Super Bowl Host Committee is considering putting a bid for the big game to return to the Bay Area.

    The president of the committee on Monday said the Bay Area will likely put in a bid to host another Super Bowl within the next seven years.

    "I think we showed the NFL that this is a region that can host a world-class event like the Super Bowl," said Keith Bruce, president for the San Francisco Bay Area Host Committee.

    Bruce added the NFL was very happy with the event, which raised more than $13 million for the Bay Area

    More than 83,000 people packed into Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara for the big game. Police reported less than two dozen arrests at the game.

    Santa Clara Mayor Jamie Matthews said teamwork between San Francisco and the South Bay gave the entire Bay Area a chance to shine.

    "I think we should be proud we came together to put on the biggest party in our history," Matthews said.
