NFL awards 2015 Super Bowl to Arizona
Arizona will host Super Bowl XLIX, NFL owners announced Tuesday.
The NFL's championship game in 2015 will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, which beat out second-place Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. The big game will take place in Indianapolis following the current season, New Orleans in 2013 and New York/New Jersey in 2014.
Arizona has hosted the event two other times -- in 2008, when the New York Giants upset the New England Patriots, 17-14, at University of Phoenix Stadium and in 1996, when the Dallas Cowboys beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 27-17, in Tempe.
