The stage is set for the LVII Super Bowl, with the Philadelphia Eagles squaring off against the Kansas City Chiefs Feb. 12 in Glendale, Ariz.’s State Farm Stadium
Glendale is no stranger to big-ticket games, serving as the home of the Arizona Cardinals and, annually, college football’s Fiesta Bowl. The stadium has also already hosted the Super Bowl on two different occasions, in 2008 and 2015. For the uninitiated, Glendale is a suburb of Phoenix complete with a sports and entertainment district that boasts several hotels, shops and restaurants to support the sporadic but heavy volume of foot traffic accompanying these (and other) major events. Nearly 80,000 fans are expected to fill the stadium to capacity, while tens of thousands of others will descend upon the broader Valley to attend Super Bowl-themed concerts and parties and more.
