Super Bowl Committee Seeks Volunteers

Super-Bowl-logo-3In anticipation of next year’s Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee is seeking volunteers–lots of them.

The organization is looking for 15,000 people to “make a first impression” on the estimated 80,000-plus visitors to the game, assisting them as the make way around the NY metro area, providing them with information about the Super Bowl and acting as hospitality guides at NFL events. But if you’re looking for a certain kind of handout, don’t count on it: volunteers do not receive tickets to the big game. You will, however, receive a volunteer uniform that is yours to keep.

More important, you could help play a role in how the rest of the world views New York and New Jersey, says the committee. And we all know how much New Jersey needs a boost.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age and undergo a background check. They will also have to attend at least one training session and work at least two shifts. No volunteers are needed at the actual game.

Super Bowl XLVIII will be the first to take place in an open stadium in a northern climate, the first Super Bowl to be jointly hosted by two states, and the first to be played in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area. It is expected to have a $550 million impact on the local economy. So, how about it? Will you volunteer?
