The “big game” is quickly approaching and before we know it, New Orleans will be full of sports fans from all over for the 47th Super Bowl in the Merecedes-Benz Superdome. If you’ve been to the Super Bowl in a different host city before, you’ll soon find out we do things a bit differently around here. As Mikko puts it, the Super Bowl just lives better in New Orleans and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation is working hard to ensure the tenth Super Bowl in New Orleans will be the best one yet. That won’t be hard with the Verizon Super Bowl Boulevard extravaganza in Woldenberg Park featuring New Orleans music, food and culture and a special arrival of this year’s roman numerals, which you’ll hear about in this episode.
Aside from securing the Super Bowl every other year or so, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation is also instrumental in other sporting events throughout the city and Jay Cicero, President and CEO, is here to tell us all about it and give us a behind the scenes look on what it takes to secure these events for New Orleans, and it’s not just our infinite charm. In addition to all of the foundation’s host events, including this year’s NCAA Women’s Final Four, the Sugar Bowl, The Zurich Classic, and the Bayou Classic also come to New Orleans ever year.
To hear about all about the Super Bowl, Cicero’s love for the Dome Dog, and information on local sporting events in New Orleans, listen to this episode of GoNOLA Radio!
