The NFL has come to town several times this year. The most recent visit was earlier this month for the last major production meeting.
"We’re crossing our T’s and dotting our I’s to make sure the plans that have been in place for a 1,000 days or more can be executed once we host 100,000 to 150,000 fans,” said Dianna Boyce, Super Bowl Host Committee.
Approximately 200 different NFL contractors are also in town to make sure everything is coming together. The Host Committee said they are looking at a lot of logistics to make sure it is a fan-friendly experience, which includes lining up big acts for the Super Bowl Village.
“We are looking to put live entertainment on those stages during that 10-day span,” said Boyce. “So we have country music performers we will be announcing, hip hop, rock, all different across the spectrum music opportunities for everyone to find their favorite and come down and enjoy it."
Country superstar Sara Evans will perform at this year's Taste of the NFL. The 21st Annual Super Bowl event will take place February 4 at Gleaner's Food Bank. Evans' performance will follow an evening filled with food and wine.
More than 35 food stations will feature a chef from each NFL city, serving up his or her signature specialty at the event.
The Host Committee has also released a new commercial that has recently started airing in Central Indiana.
“For the 10 days leading up to the Super Bowl, obviously that when you’ll see a lot of things happening downtown,” said Boyce. “But in terms of transportation parking and all those different plans, what streets might be impacted. Those are things that have been in the works for a longs time.”
The Super Bowl meeting will take place at Lucas Oil Stadium at 2 p.m.
