SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Glendale has the stadium and quaint little community.

Scottsdale has the fancy resorts, luxurious spas and nightlife.

The battle has officially begun to attract visitors to next year's Super Bowl in Arizona.

"I'd rather stay in Scottsdale," said football fan Bill Sinter.

"I would prefer to stay Glendale," said West Valley visitor Susan Lardner.

"I don't think Glendale is bad, I just prefer Scottsdale," said Scottsdale resident Cindy Turnish.

The city of Scottsdale has officially stepped up its game, by launching a major ad campaign in the New York/New jersey area - sight of this year's Super Bowl.

Scottsdale is running more than 50 digital advertisements - that can be seen at subway stations all week - leading up to Sunday's game.

The city has also launched a new website, www.BigGameinScottsdale.com.

And that has some Valley fans wondering whether Scottsdale is blatantly trying to steal business away from Glendale.

Rachel Pearson, with the Scottsdale Convention and Visitors' Bureau said,  that's not the case at all.

"It's a win-win when all of our communities are successful," said Pearson. "Visitors experiencing all that we have. It also encourages repeat visitation for the state."

"When you look at what we have in the Valley - Glendale, Scottsdale, Mesa, Phoenix, Tempe, it's great total destination," said Ren Hirose, general manager of W. Scottsdale Hotel.

But what do Glendale officials think about Scottsdale's Super Bowl shuffle to attract fans?

Glendale Convention and Visitors Bureau manager Lorraine Pino said it doesn't really matter where Super Bowl fans stay,  as long as they come to Arizona, it's good for everyone.

"All the cities from the Valley, Tucson, Lake Havasu, Grand Canyon, we need to be able to work together," said Pino. "There's enough business to go around."
