I am confident that Super Bowl LX will be a great event that will benefit the entire community."

As part of Super Bowl LX activities, the Bay Area will host a series of highly anticipated events that make up Super Bowl Week, including the NFL Awards, the Super Bowl Experience, Super Bowl Opening Night and a strong community program. 

Events are expected to take place throughout the Bay Area, with various opportunities for visitors and residents to have memorable pre-game experiences.

We are thrilled to bring another large-scale event to the area and showcase the Bay Area's unique spirit and diversity."
