  1. This is the third time that Arizona is hosting the Super Bowl in the past 19 years
    February 1, 2015 will mark the third time that Arizona has hosted the Super Bowl in the past 19 years. The first time AZ hosted the Super Bowl was in 1996 at Sun Devil Stadium where Dallas beat Pittsburgh 27 to 17. The second time was in 2008. That was the year where the New York Giants ended the New England Patriots perfect season with a 17 to 14 victory.
  2. The University of Phoenix Stadium is considered one of the best in the nation
    According to anybody who has attended an Arizona Cardinals’ football game, you can see the “game from anywhere in the stadium”. Not only that, but the stadium seats 63,000+ and can add seats to reach the total to over 78,000. The stadium also has a retractable roof.
  3. Katy Perry was chosen to do the halftime show after much haggling
    Perry was on the short list with Rhianna and Coldplay, but the NFL wanted performers to pay to play the Super Bowl and even though Perry balked at doing so, she asserted that she “wasn’t the type of girl to pay to play at the Super Bowl”, she may have caved in favor of the infamous Super Bowl bump.
  4. In any case, Perry is the best choice
    Why is Perry such a great choice? Stop me if you have heard this. Women want to be her, men want to be with her and as of November of 2013, Katy Perry officially became the most popular person on social media.
