About The Players Tailgate

The Players Tailgate has earned the reputation of being one of the best Super Bowl tailgates year after year, where over 25 active NFL players, celebrities, and guests come together to enjoy a premium open bar and expertly cooked food from 12pm-5pm on Super Bowl Sunday.

Guests enjoy an indoor/outdoor pavilion lined with private tables and an abundance of soft white leather furniture where you can watch ESPN’s pre-game coverage broadcast on large LED monitors. It is an amazing experience for football fans young and old. This is an all-ages event!

This years event will be hosted by ESPN personality Jaymee Sire, with the famous DJ Irie (the official DJ of the Miami Heat, Jamie Foxx, Carnival Cruise Lines, and more) providing his world class entertainment skills.

Last year, players in attendance included Vontae Davis, Shane Vereen, Jamaal Charles, and Allen Robinson. Check out the video below for a summary of The Players Tailgate at Super Bowl 50.
