The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee announced its board of directors for Super Bowl XLIX. The board of directors is composed of business leaders who volunteer their time to drive the state’s efforts for Super Bowl XLIX.

The Host Committee is a private, nonprofit Arizona corporation. The board was assembled in 2013 to begin planning and to garner local corporate support and sponsors.

“We have an impressive group of business leaders working together to meet the fundraising goals for Super Bowl XLIX and to maximize the opportunity to build the Arizona brand in this unparalleled global spotlight,” said David Rousseau, Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee chairman. “We want to promote Arizona as an ideal destination for businesses and tourists well beyond Super Bowl XLIX.”

Super Bowl XLIX is scheduled to be played at University Of Phoenix Stadium on Feb. 1, 2015, marking Arizona’s second Super Bowl in seven years. In Super Bowl XLII at University of Phoenix Stadium in 2008, the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 17-14. Arizona’s first big game, Super Bowl XXX, was held at Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Stadium in 1996 with the Dallas Cowboys beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17.
