Millions of football fans around the world are getting ready for Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday February 3, 2013, which will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. This will be the 10th Super Bowl to be held in New Orleans since 1970 and the first time since before Hurricane Katrina that the top two teams in the National Football League will battle in the big easy.
The city of New Orleans is thriving and ready to remind the world that it knows how to host a party and this one will be no exception, especially since the big game will come between the two weekends of Mardi Gras. Fans will have a wide range of entertainment options to choose from around downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter. Live music, fabulous food, interactive fan events and even opportunities to meet and greet your favorite pro football stars are all on the agenda.
Fans of the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers will be especially energized about the big game this year and the excitement is already growing fast in New Orleans after the much anticipated media day. Super Bowl media day takes place each season the Tuesday before the big game. It is not a day for competition between the players, coaches and owners, but a day for communication and a chance to tell their story to the world.
After the survival of media day, the big easy will start to gear up for the 21st NFL Experience which opens each year on the Wednesday before the big game and will be held this year at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Loyal fans proclaim that NFL Experience is the most exciting continuous event surrounding Super Bowl XLVII – pro football’s interactive theme park offering participatory games, displays, entertainment attractions, kids football clinics, free autograph sessions and the largest football memorabilia show ever. There will be plenty of football exhibits such as the Vince Lombardi Trophy, photo opportunities for fans to hold the jersey of their favorite team as if they were just taken in the NFL Draft. This is an event that fans do not want to miss.
This year’s Super Bowl XLVII famous Concert Series will be hosted at The Sugar Mill in New Orleans and will air (LIVE) in Primetime on VH1 on Friday, February 1st at 8 PM CST / 9 PM EST. Each year the series feature star-studded performances by award winning artists and guest appearances by top celebrities and NFL players.
