INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — City officials say Indianapolis lost more than expected hosting this year's Super Bowl.

Leaders of the city's sports and convention board say final figures on tax revenue and expenses show it lost $1.1 million on the February game, about $300,000 more than expected.

The biggest expenses was $3.6 million for police and fire protection. The Capital Improvement Board received about $2.9 million more in hotel, restaurant and auto rental taxes during the Super Bowl period than during the same time a year earlier.

Board president Ann Lathrop told reporters Monday that the $1 million was a good investment for the national exposure the city received and that it could be absorbed in the agency's operating budget.
