Confetti Super BowlWhat? Don’t tell me you’ve never celebrated a half-birthday? Okay, well if we’re being honest, neither have I, BUT I do notice when my half birthday rolls around. I take that opportunity to recount the past six months and note what I’ve done; then, I look forward to the coming six months and note what I’d still like to accomplish before the next time I blow out my candles.

So, how can you celebrate this special Super Bowl XLIX milestone? Simple: By planning your trip to football’s biggest game (and birthday bash!)

Six months out? I know what you’re thinking, on your last trip you planned it 48 hours before you were on the plane. While that may work for a random weekend trip to Vermont, it won’t fly at the biggest game of the year. You need advanced planning to get your itinerary just right, to make sure you’re at all Super Bowl XLIX events and to ensure that you’ve got the best of everything for this bucket list event.

Great Seats

Because if you’re going to Super Bowl XLIX you don’t want a field goal post blocking your view! Planning early gives you a selection of the best seating. With NFL On Location’s Official Ticket Packages this means selecting from Red and Blue level seating, Stadium Box or the Touchdown Club.

Each Package has a specific section to fit your viewing desires and budget. By booking in advance all of these options are available to you, versus in January when you may have to try your luck on the secondary market. Which leads me too…

Better Pricing

Luckily with NFL On Location’s Official Partnership with the NFL you know your tickets are secure, guaranteed and direct from the source. By waiting until the very last minute you may have to try your luck on the secondary market, where ticket price inflation runs rampant, particularly for high profile events such as Super Bowl XLIX.

Further, you will get better deals on accommodations and flights. Typically, Wednesdays are the best day to purchase flights, but even in January if you wait until the Wednesday before Super Bowl Sunday, prices to Arizona will have gone up substantially.

With Official Packages you can opt for luxury accommodations in Arizona so it’s one less thing to plan.

The Party!

What’s a birthday without a party? And boy does Super Bowl XLIX have a good one in store for NFL fans!

This year’s Super Bowl will feature various hospitality party venues, and these aren’t just your run of the mill cake and streamers party, no sir. Super Bowl Hospitality Party Venues are open for three hours pre-game, decked out and filled with gourmet food, premium open bars, tons of interactive entertainment elements, live performances and (my personal favorite) player and cheerleader appearances! That’s right, outside from seeing them on the field, guests get to meet former and current players and cheerleaders, chat it up and get pics and autographs!

Super Bowl Players 

Depending on your package level you may even get in-game concessions and beverages, as well as post game hospitality venue access again—that’s right, keep the party going!

So how do you get access to this epic party? By booking your package early through NFL On Location!

Party Favors

Of course there are goodies! By booking early and getting an Official Super Bowl XLIX Ticket Package you also get either an Official Super Bowl XLIX Gift Bag brimming OR a merchandise voucher to hand pick the souvenirs you want to take home from the big game.

Guests also receive an exclusive Stadium Collection Game Program Voucher as a Super Bowl XLIX Lanyard with Ticket Sleeve, so you have tons of proof (for bragging) and souvenirs to remember this epic experience.


You definitely get rewarded for booking early by also having on-site staff to assist in Arizona, your own dedicated security entrance from your hospitality party venue to the stadium, and a once in a lifetime to be on the field post-game.

As the confetti falls inside University of Phoenix Stadium you can share the moment as booking certain Official Ticket Packages early gets you this unique experiences.
