The NFL is bringing its main attraction to the Valley for a fourth time, making the region the fourth-most popular Super Bowl host city.
When Kansas City and Philadelphia meet at State Farm Stadium on Feb. 12, they’ll carry the hopes of two regions and thousands of fans with them. They’ll also bring more than $720 million in economic impact to the region, according to Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business, making the Big Game a big winner for the state — and almost assuredly for Arizona sportsbooks.
The Eagles rolled into their fourth Super Bowl by routing the New York Giants and San Francisco by a combined score of 69-14, while the Chiefs qualified for their fifth Big Game by eking out wins over Jacksonville and Cincinnati on the AFC side of the bracket.
The two conference champions will meet in Glendale at 4:30 p.m. Arizona time in a contest FOX will air nationally, bringing the attention of thousands of attendees to the Arizona sports betting apps market.
