2) Feel Safe, Be Safe - Public Safety is Top Priority for Hosting Superbowl

Public safety is top priority for law enforcement officials, but it should be your top priority too. “Feel Safe, Be Safe” is the public safety theme developed by the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee for Super Bowl LII. Gain insights from security experts, who will champion this high-profile event, and how to partner with law enforcement to ensure a safe and successful Super Bowl event.

3) Volunteer Engagement: Calling Volunteers to Join Crew 52

One of the most rewarding and impactful ways to get involved in Super Bowl LII is to volunteer as part of Crew 52. Crew 52 is our team of up to 10,000 volunteers, who will be a central part of making our Super Bowl a success. Crew 52 volunteers will be the face of Minnesota as we host more than 1 million visitors during the 10-day festival. Join us for a breakdown on what it takes to be on the Crew 52 team.
