Can´t hold your excitement for Super Bowl 50? For diehard fans that want to be in the spotlight of everything they can, the NFL will host The Opening Night, an event that takes place on Monday, February 01 at SAP Center in San Jose, California. Traditionally this was a day only for the media to interview Super Bowl team players, now the NFL opened its doors for fans to watch how it all happens from the stands. Super Bowl Opening Night tickets are cheap with a starting price of around $30 dollars, but if you fail to snatch an official ticket here you can find several re-seller options according to your budget.
What is the Super Bowl Opening Night
In the past, every Tuesday before the Super Bowl (Super Tuesday), Super Bowl held a half day media day to host interviews during the morning hours.
Prior to 2016 the event was media only, now fans can enter the premises and watch both players and media in action.
So is it like a zoo were fans sit on the stands and watch super stars move around saying high, laughing and doing gestures to the camera? Yeah, something like that but with half time shows and gifts. If you get lucky your jersey might get autographed.
The event will happen on Monday, February 01 on primetime hour instead of the usual morning hours. This is to favor broadcasts around the world.
Super Bowl Opening Night Hours: Between 5:00pm till 8:00pm
What do I Get for My Ticket
The event does have its goodies. Musical performances have been announced although no artists has been specified. There is an interlude in between the interviews between 6pm and 7pm, a nice time for a snack and music.
