Highest Overall Per Cap in History for Full Capacity Super Bowl
Legends, a global premium experiences company, today announced record-breaking sales for food and beverage, as well as merchandise for Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Legends operates hospitality, which includes concessions and premium spaces, at SoFi Stadium and is partnered with the NFL to execute on-site retail for the Super Bowl and other NFL tentpole events.
The overall per cap for Super Bowl LVI, including general concessions, premium dining and merchandise sales, was $167.37, the highest overall per cap in history for a full capacity Super Bowl. This marks a 14% increase over the previous record at Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco. The number is for Super Bowl game day sales at SoFi Stadium only.
In total, Legends generated over $18 million in revenue for all NFL related activities (Feb. 5 – Feb 13), including SoFi Stadium sales, NFL Shop presented by Visa at the Super Bowl Experience, additional Super Bowl retail pop-up and hotel locations throughout Los Angeles, and on-site merchandise for the 2022 Pro Bowl in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Our team was incredibly proud to be a part of Super Bowl LVI, turning up the spotlight on Los Angeles and celebrating the diverse culture of the area through our food and beverage program at SoFi Stadium and unique merchandise partnerships with local artists,” said Dan Smith, president of Legends Hospitality. “The buzz around the game and the city was incredible, with the home team playing and back to a full capacity Super Bowl. Our team worked around the clock to ensure an expedient, first-class experience for fans inside the stadium and at the retail locations throughout the city.”
“SoFi Stadium was built to host world-class events like the Super Bowl. We collaborated with Legends on our point-of-sale infrastructure from day one. For the Super Bowl, we added additional point-of-sale locations and provided multiple types of access points throughout the building and across the Hollywood Park campus for food, beverage and merchandise. This allowed us to operate for the NFL at the highest level and create an unforgettable Super Bowl experience for guests at SoFi Stadium,” said Jason Gannon, managing director, SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park.
Throughout the stadium there were more than 900 concession points of sale (fixed and handheld), making for easy access for fans to get food and beverages without having to wait in long lines. There were 24 merchandise locations inside the stadium, including the main team store. Outside the venue there were 12 portable retail trailers.
Legends was the NFL’s official retail merchandise concessionaire for Super Bowl LVI. The NFL Shop presented by Visa at the Super Bowl Experience was open for one week from Saturday, February 5 through Saturday, February 12 and covered 30,000 square feet. The store offered the largest collection of Super Bowl merchandise anywhere, with the majority of the product mix being exclusive. In addition to the main NFL Shop presented by Visa, there were five pop-up locations throughout Los Angeles and 30 hotels carrying merchandise, all operated by Legends.
Legends manages on-site retail at NFL tentpole events, including the Super Bowl, Pro Bowl, NFL Draft and NFL Combine. In addition, Legends and the NFL partnered recently to open NFL Las Vegas presented by Visa, an innovative NFL-themed store located in the renowned Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.
