The Super Bowl is considered “the greatest show on turf”. If you are lucky enough to get a ticket for the game in February 2023, you will see the AFC winners take on the NFC champions at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Even if you can’t get a ticket for the game, being around the host city for a Super Bowl can be great fun. Lots of NFL fans flock to enjoy the celebrations and events which tend to take place in the week ahead of the contest.
The last time the state of Arizona hosted a Super Bowl was in 2015. It was a thrilling game which went right down to the last few seconds, as the New England Patriots beat Seattle Seahawks 28-24.
If you are looking to go to one of the above three events in 2023, plan everything as early as possible to avoid disappointment for travel and match tickets.
