NFL-logo_200Arizona 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.
