In case anyone forgot, New Orleans will be hosting the Super Bowl next year, bringing the largest American sports spectacle right to our doorsteps. Make no mistake, it's going to be overwhelming and it's going to require help form a lot of people. 8,000 to be exact.
Tomorrow at YLC's Wednesday at the Square, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation (GNOSF) and the NFL Super Bowl Host Committee will be recruiting volunteers to help before and during Super Bowl week next year. Via GNOSF:
The volunteers will be the face of the Super Bowl XLVII and will take on crucial roles around the city, including helping visitors navigate New Orleans, providing visitors with information regarding all Super Bowl-related events, filling hospitality positions at events hosted by the NFL, its sponsors and the Host Committee, and assisting in community-related events.
So anyone who's interested in volunteering for the Super Bowl, go out and listen to some free music at Lafayette Square. Gotta love New Orleans.
