The NFL has announced that the 2024 Super Bowl event will be taking place at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on 11 February 2024. The upcoming event is already being referred to as the biggest “Big Game” in NFL history, and NFL officials are highlighting various features and figures that make it so spectacular.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal (LVRJ), a series of Super Bowl promotional events has been drawing enormous attention, even 68 days before the NFL finals. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell commented on the public sentiment, stating, “I would say the buzz, at least in our environment, has never been higher. And again, I think that’s so much of what you’ve created here (in Las Vegas).”
The game will have extensive technological infrastructure in place, with the CBS Sports network set to render the largest Super Bowl production in the broadcaster’s history, utilizing as many as 110 cameras. Sean McManus, the CBS Sports Chairman, mentioned that the cameras, including 4K zoom devices, three drones, and five aerial cameras, will ensure full coverage of the Allegiant Stadium spectacle by crews stationed in 19 mobile broadcast units. McManus also stated, “We will have it all covered from every single angle.”
The CBS network’s coverage will start on the Monday of Super Bowl week, culminating in 10 hours of coverage on Super Bowl Sunday. Additionally, all advertising slots during the big game have been sold out faster than ever in Super Bowl history. McManus clarified, “That’s not a cheap ticket by the way. That’s somewhere between $6 million to $7 million for a 30-second commercial.”
The upcoming game will make Las Vegas the only city to host the prestigious triad of NFL Draft, Pro Bowl, and Super Bowl events. This is especially remarkable considering that the city has only had an NFL team since 2020, when the Raiders relocated to Southern Nevada. Steve Hill, chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, expressed, “We’re glad to be a part of it, and it has changed Las Vegas.”
With all these exciting developments, the 2024 Super Bowl is poised to become a historic, must-see event in the NFL’s history.
