The Southern Arizona Leadership Council proudly salutes the strong effort, teamwork and leadership that is making the Arizona Bowl a tradition in our community. The game brings in much needed revenue to Tucson between Christmas and New Year’s, traditionally a slow period. Economic impact to Southern Arizona in 2015 – $16.3 million; 8,000 hotel room nights were used.

SALC welcomes the coaches, players and fans of the Air Force Academy Falcons and the South Alabama Jaguars. We look forward to a great game that not only boosts our economy, but shines a light on the wonderful lifestyle here in Southern Arizona.

The 140 senior business leaders of SALC congratulate the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl presenters and partners for building Southern Arizona.
