Super Bowl Events

Where Are the 2015 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl Events?

The 2015 Pro Bowl (Jan. 25) and Super Bowl 49 in 2015 (Feb. 1) will be held in Glendale, Arizona, but many of the events leading up to the game take place in other locations all over town. Greater Phoenix is very spread out. It incorporates more than 25 cities and towns and several thousand square miles. If you are planning to come to Phoenix to participate in Super Bowl activities and events (hopefully you have tickets to the big game, too!) it is difficult to know where to stay. Phoenix? Glendale? Scottsdale? Tempe? It all depends what you'll be doing.

Note #1: All the points on the map are approximate. The purpose here is to simply give you an indication of how far you will be traveling to get to the various events. In conjunction with the map, you might find this complex of local driving times and distances useful.

Note #2: There are more public events than the ones specified here -- check the list, and get the details!

    Glendale. The Super Bowl will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium, and the official tailgate/pregame activities will be held in this area. There are sports bars and restaurants, as well as a modern outlet mall, at Westgate Entertainment District.
