Las Vegas Review-Journal (08/23/23) Akers, Mick
The National Football League (NFL) and the Las Vegas Super Bowl LVIII Host Committee have announced the schedule of events for Super Bowl week. Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority President Steve Hill anticipates minimum revenues of $500 million, "but projections are really probably between $600 million to $700 million." The NFL's Peter O'Reilly said things are "in really good shape in terms of our planning overall. We will be back here on a regular basis between now and the Super Bowl. We'll have people out here for the F1 race, observing that." Caesars Palace will be the league's headquarter hotel and home base. The Super Bowl week of Feb. 5, 2024, will kick off with Super Bowl Opening Night at Allegiant Stadium, with photo opportunities and exclusive merchandise among the offerings on hand; opening night tickets will retail for $30 and will be available for purchase in December. The Mandalay Bay Convention Center will host the Super Bowl Experience scheduled for Feb. 7-10, with ticket prices varying by day. The convention center will also host the Super Bowl Media Center while the Super Kids Super Sharing Initiative donation drive will be held at the Pearson Community Center. Other events scheduled for the week include the 25th Annual Super Bowl Soulful Celebration and the Taste of the NFL culinary experience, whose proceeds will support the GENYOUTH nonprofit.
