If you won’t be attending the Super Bowl at NRG in 2017, there’s another huge event you can still celebrate at. The NFL will kick off Super Bowl LI festivities in Houston by hosting the participating teams and fans in primetime at Super Bowl Opening Night fueled by Gatorade on Monday, January 30th, 2017 at Minute Maid Park.
Super Bowl Opening Night allows fans to sit in the stands and watch players and coaches interview with the media. Plus the event will feature live musical performances, special appearances, and autographs from NFL Legends, cheerleaders and team mascots. AND a Red Carpet fan photo opportunity.
The event will be the first time players and coaches meet with the media in Houston and will also be televised live on the NFL Network.
“Building on the success at Super Bowl 50, we’re excited to bring Super Bowl Opening Night to Houston and provide fans more opportunities to be a part of the excitement of Super Bowl week,” said NFL Senior Vice President of Events PETER O’REILLY. “Hosting the event at the stadium allows us to bring more fans closer to the action, as media from around the world interview members of Super Bowl teams for the first time.”
Doors open at 5:30pm and the festivities begin at 7PM with the first interviews from 7:15-8:15, and 9-10 PM.
“Fans in attendance will receive gift bags with a radio to tune into NFL Network coverage and listen to some of the individual player interviews from the podium microphones.”
Tickets are available for purchase at Ticketmaster.com and start as low as $20.00.
