Super Bowl is almost here, and that means that it's time to either clean up your apartment for company or decide which party you're going to grace with your presence. Where you watch the game is almost as important as the food you eat, because a shitty setup can totally ruin the experience. We're sure your place is really nice, but nothing can compare to the NFL's headquarters on Park Avenue in New York City. Of course most of the people who work there on a daily basis have tickets to the game in Arizona, but those who stay behind will have quite the spread.
The NFL's VP of Marketing Jaime Weston gave Adweek a tour of the incredible space, including the "War Room" where they monitor every aspect of every game, jersey and helmet galleries, a locker room hallway lined that provides a history lesson about the league, the main lobby where the Vince Lombardi trophy sits on display, and a dope waiting room with regulation AstroTurf lining the floor.
The space was designed and built by Ted Moudis Associates and a team from the Jack Morton marketing agency. "There is no one specific important room," Weston told Adweek. "The whole office space was designed to have our employees keep the 32 teams, the fans, the game and innovation in mind whenever they were making decisions or plans with the NFL." The only person we know of that has a TV room more impressive than the NFL is the God, John Madden, who has a warehouse near his home with nine 63-inch monitors around a screen that is 16 feet wide and nine feet high.
NFL if you're reading this, we would love to hold down the fort while you guys are away.
