Background

In 2008 the City of Glendale hosted Super Bowl XLII (42) at the University of Phoenix Stadium. As a result of a highly successful event in 2008, the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee requested that the City of Glendale participate in several subsequent bids for future Super Bowl games which ultimately led to a successful bid by the Host Committee for the 2015 game.
