PHOENIX – Groups planning to come to the 2015 Super Bowl can explore the events and attractions set up for fans across downtown Phoenix. The town recently announced plans to transform a dozen city blocks downtown into “Super Bowl Central” for next February.
Officials project Super Bowl Central will attract one million fans to downtown Phoenix in the days leading up to the main event. The Phoenix Convention Center will house the NFL Experience, the world’s largest interactive football theme park.
Outside, an outdoor fan campus with live music, family-friendly activities, beer and wine gardens, and street-level merchants will also entertain.
“Hosting Super Bowl events downtown garners Phoenix tremendous positive exposure as a place to hold a convention or event,” said Steve Moore, president and CEO of Visit Phoenix. “When Arizona hosted the Super Bowl in 2008, downtown was still largely a construction zone. Next year’s game will give us a chance to showcase the Phoenix Convention Center, light rail, CityScape and the many new hotels, restaurants and event venues in the city’s urban core.”
