Before you read any further, think back to the last professional football game you went to; now how would you describe the average fan? Close your eyes and remember the people around you; what did the fans on the jumbo TV look like? Once you have some ideas, read on.
Here are some interesting statistics of your “average” Super Bowl guest. First, remember that the Super Bowl is not a football game; it’s a corporate event. So, it shouldn’t be too surprising that 85% of the fans are from out-of-state and as many as 90% will arrive here by plane – most by private jet! Are you beginning to get a different picture than the person who sat next to you? Well, over half of the entire stadium will make more than $75,000/year, and almost half of those will make over $100,000! Here’s the most telling statistic; 65% are the key decision-makers in their company.
Given these numbers it shouldn’t be too hard to figure why tickets to the Super Bowl are so hard to come by! Having said all that, there isn’t anything that says you can’t rub shoulders with those owners of the private jets. Remember that Fort Worth will be host to the AFC representative to the Super Bowl. All AFC parties are going to be in Fort Worth, and there will be a lot of them that are open to the public. Additionally, I’m sure you’ve heard that ESPN has selected downtown Fort Worth to be the location for over 80 hours of live broadcasts during the week before the game. Here’s where you insert the words, celebrities, players, coaches, analysts. Get the picture, no pun intended! You can be a part of all of this just by being here. Here’s where you insert the words, Texas White House!
