3 Things You Need to Know About the 2015 Arizona Super Bolw

As most of you know, I like football. Okay, I LOVE football. So no one could be more excited than me that the Super Bowl is returning to Arizona next year! Super Bowl XLIX (49) is going to be played right here on our home soil in the beautiful valley of the sun, and it’s sure to be a boost in the Arizona economy. Here are 3 things you need to know about the 2015 Arizona Super Bowl.

1.) Hello AZ Revenue!: More than one million people are expected to flock to downtown Phoenix for Super Bowl festivities next year, generating over a half-billion dollars in economic impact. Officials said Arizona Super Bowl XXX (30) hosted back in 2008 brought about $500 million to the metro area. However, organizers have more ambitious goals for 2015 and the committee plans to raise $30 million to fund activities. Scottsdale expects to host many parties and events, with celebrities and fans visiting its trendy clubs and shops. Hotels around the Valley also expect to see a bump in business. And with so many events happening throughout the valley, business leaders expect downtown businesses, restaurants and hotels to reap mighty returns and increase revenue for Arizona’s economy.

2.) Arizona SuperBowl XLIX Festivities: There will be tons of great events and promotions to celebrate the Super Bowl’s return to Arizona in 2015. Super Bowl Central, from Fifth Street to First Avenue and Jefferson to Monroe streets in downtown Phoenix, will be filled with music, free activities and food and drink. And most of the major Super Bowl XLIX events, except for the game itself, will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center, CityScape Phoenix and the Hyatt Regency Phoenix. However, the NFL championship game itself will be played February 1, 2015 at the renowned University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ, home of the Arizona Cardinals.

3.) Traffic Snags?: So naturally Super Bowl XLIX will bring millions of people to the valley for the event so that means there is going to be more traffic surrounding the event. Phoenix officials have yet to announce how closing twelve blocks to traffic could alter the transportation routes of the thousands of people who work and live downtown. But with Super Bowl Central lodged between light-rail stops, walking distance from the city's largest bus stations on First Avenue and Van Buren Street and within reach of the city's bike-share program, leaders hope fewer people will rely on cars to enjoy the Super Bowl events.
