Many Arizonans are revving up for Glendale’s hosting of the 2015 Super Bowl, whether they’re planning on attending the game itself, having a Super Bowl party or going to a sports bar to enjoy the atmosphere.
But besides the general sense of electricity, there’s another perk to hosting the Super Bowl: the NFL Experience.
The NFL announced Tuesday the tickets for this event will go on sale on Wednesday at 10 a.m. SuperBowl.com. Fans will also be able to purchase tickets on-site when the event begins.
The NFL Experience will be hosted in the Phoenix Convention Center from Jan. 24 to Feb. 1. It’s almost an NFL theme park, which features over 50 interactive activities.
Fans will be able to meet and get free autographs from current and former NFL players, take pictures with the Vince Lombardi trophy, learn how to pass like a pro and shop in a massive NFL store.
Although the announcement is recent, Phoenix has been preparing for the NFL Experience for months on end.
Phoenix Convention Center director John Chan outlined a lengthy timetable to prepare for the event.
“This summer is when we started getting all the details and detailed floor plans of the NFL Experience, where all the exhibits were going to be located. It’s actually this summer when everything started coming together,” Chan said.
Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for children, and family packages and veteran discounts are available.
