Scottsdale, Ariz. – The Fiesta Bowl announced today that it has launched a new, state-of-the-art website to serve as the official home for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, Insight Bowl and Festival of College Football.
The site, which was created as the ultimate resource for both college football fans and Arizona residents, features the most up to date information on the Valley’s bowl games and Festival of more than 40 annual events.  Other aspects include a concierge service, which allows those coming to Arizona for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and Insight Bowl to ask travel related questions, fan forums, videos and pictures galleries. 
“While the Fiesta Bowl is honored to be a member of the college football community, we also take great pride in servicing the state of Arizona,” said Chairman of the Board Dave Tilson.  “That is why our goal in building this new website was not only to create an internet haven for college football fans, but also a site that is reflective of our Valley traditions.”
The site was developed by Tempe, AZ based Sitewire Marketplace Solutions, LLC., and will feature additional components in the near future, including an online auction, merchandise and pictures stores.
