PHOENIX — Downtown Phoenix will host all the official Super Bowl XLIX-related events next year, it was announced Tuesday.
Organizers predicted more than 1 million visitors will turn up for Super Bowl Central activities, which will be spread over a dozen city blocks. The site will be set up from Monroe and Jefferson streets and from First Avenue to Fifth Street.
Mayor Greg Stanton said, “Phoenix is a world-class city and we’re excited to host one of the world’s biggest events.”
Light-rail train wrap ads were unveiled. The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee has begun the countdown, noting on Twitter, “Only 313 days until #SB49 week”

The game will be played Feb. 1, 2015 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.
