Councilman Daniel Valenzuela’s Statement on Arizona Being Awarded the 2023 Super BowlCouncilman Daniel Valenzuela’s Statement on Arizona Being Awarded the 2023 Super Bowl<div class="ExternalClass50188B19B3AD4E9BB672C124F55E1CC2"><p></p><p>"Congratulations to Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwell and the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee for bringing home to our state its 4<sup>th</sup> Super Bowl in 2023.  </p><p>The economic impact for Phoenix and the Valley is staggering. By one estimate it could exceed a billion dollars in 2023.  The Valley has always been a destination for tourists, lured by great winter weather and the magnetic pull of our culture, cuisine, and arts. Add to that a proven track record for hosting mega-sized events in a safe and family-friendly environment. </p><p>But we are no longer just a tourist destination. Phoenix's economy is growing and diversifying.  Bio-medical research, tech start-ups, our universities, all contribute to making Phoenix the jewel of the Southwest.</p><p>The NFL's decision to bring Super Bowl LVII to the University of Phoenix Stadium is further recognition that our state, our region, and our city are places to not only visit but do business. Let the planning begin."  <br></p><p><br></p></div>5/23/2018 8:00:00 PMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
