The 49th installment of the NFLs biggest game is sure to be one for the ages. The Super Bowl is a game that is played by the AFC and NFC conference winners. These two conference winners will play each other exactly 2 weeks after the conference championship game. This year’s Super Bowl is being held at University of Phoenix Stadium near Glendale, Arizona. This stadium is the same stadium that is home to the Arizona Cardinals. The last time the Super Bowl was held at University of Phoenix stadium was in 2008. Super Bowl 49 will be broadcast worldwide on the NBC network. The Super Bowl wasn’t originally supposed to be played in Arizona.
In fact, many speculate that the Kansas City Chief’s were favorites to host the Super Bowl in the Midwest. This deal required tax increases that voters shunned and it also required that Arrowhead stadium install a retractable roof. None of these conditions were met therefore the Super Bowl committee began taking other bids from other cities thus netting the Arizona Cardinal’s home stadium as the recipient of the 49th Super Bowl. Sources note that Coldplay, Katy Perry and Rihanna are rumored to be at the halftime show of Super Bowl 49.
