Arizona has won the right to host another Super Bowl, as the NFL’s owners voted today to bring the game back to University of Phoenix Stadium in 2015.
The owners voted today to pick Glendale, Arizona over the other finalist, Tampa, Florida.
Tampa and Glendale had been identified as the Super Bowl XLIX host city finalists several months ago. The NFL waited to schedule a final vote on the matter until they were sure the lockout wouldn’t cancel the 2012 Super Bowl, which would have resulted in Indianapolis being awarded the 2015 game. (Aren’t you glad we’re not worrying about such things anymore?)
Indianapolis hosts the Super Bowl at the conclusion of this season, followed by New Orleans in 2013 and New York/New Jersey in 2014 before Arizona in 2015.
