And you got to love the new Virtual View, which gives a 360 degree view of all open seats, so you know exactly where you’ll be kicking it at Super Bowl 51.




You know so much about the NFL, or think you do, that you could be an analyst for Super Bowl 51, right there with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. Well, maybe not.

But you can do the next best thing – download the FireFan app, which allows sports fans to engage with each other, discuss their favorite teams and players, boast and brag, and most important of all, compete in real time by predicting who’s going to win.

FireFan is the perfect app for putting your obsessive sports knowledge to work.
