On February 2, 2014, MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will host Super Bowl XLVIII. To celebrate, New York City, the Super Bowl Host Committee and GMC have dreamed up “Super Bowl Boulevard,” a series of football-themed experiences that will take over Times Square the week before the big game. Stop by a live concert, snap a photo with the Vince Lombardi Trophy or race down a specially made toboggan. Admission is FREE and open to the public. FOX, NFL Network, CBS, CNN and ESPN will broadcast the festivities live.
Activities Happening in Times Square
Vince Lombardi Trophy: While the AFC and NFC champions will have to battle it out to earn the NFL’s most coveted prize, you can take a photo with it just by showing up.
Super Bowl XLVIII Roman Numerals: Pose in front of the oversize numerals commemorating this year’s game and don’t be afraid to get snap happy. (Broadway between 42nd and 43rd Streets).
Toboggan Run: In celebration of the first open-air cold-weather Super Bowl, enjoy a wintry ride—this seven story slide is painted to look like the real, snowy, deal. Tickets can be purchased on site. (Broadway between 40th and 41st Streets).
Autograph and Concert Stage: Stop by for free autograph sessions with current and former NFL players (daily, noon–6pm), as well as concerts (daily, 8–10pm). (Broadway between 39th and 40th Streets).
If you are traveling in or around Times Square, please note the following street closures:
Broadway between 35th and 42nd Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic at 6pm on Saturday, January 25th. This is necessary to facilitate snow clean-up/removal and the removal of any other items along the event footprint prior to the scheduled load-in. The load-in of elements on Broadway will commence as planned at 12:01am on Sunday, January 26th.
Broadway will be closed from 34th Street to 47th Street for the event from January 26th to February 2nd 2014.
All cross streets are expected to remain open with the exception of 41st Street.
