Having fully cooperated with the Arizona Attorney General's investigation for over a year, we commend Attorney General Horne and the lawyers and investigators who have worked tirelessly on this case to bring those who violated the law to justice. The Fiesta Bowl is bigger than a few individuals and has gained its stellar reputation through the hard work of thousands of honest volunteers over the last 40 years. To ensure that violations of the law will not occur again, we have made significant and lasting changes to our governance and hired some great new leaders who are eager to put this sad episode behind us and focus on hosting premier bowl games and community events that contribute to our state, community and college football.”
