Stay & Play at Super Bowl XLIX with Luxurious Hotel Ticket Packages

  
  
  

If you've ever attending a top notch sporting event that draws in a large crowd from a variety of different locations, you know just how hard it is to book a decent hotel room. Prices sky-rocket, inventory goes quickly and before you know it, you're paying $500 a night for a cheap, outside-entry motel. Definitely not the relaxing, dream vacation you were thinking of.

Well, one of the greatest things about Official Super Bowl Ticket Packages direct from NFL On Location provided by QuintEvents, is the fact that luxurious hotel accommodations close to the stadium can be included!

No having to book your room yourself. No having to deal with incredibly high price points. No staying in a motel. Plus, group booking is easy!

Take a look at the benefits of opting to stay and play in Arizona for Super Bowl XLIX, and see the other inclusions that you'll find in Official Super Bowl Ticket Packages, in addition to accommodations!

Why You Need to Stay and Play for Super Bowl XLIX

doubletree paradise valley resized 600A better question to ask is, "Why wouldn't you want to stay play?"

With the biggest game of the year comes Super Bowl Boulevard and a plethora of other exciting events any football fan would kill to be a part of! By deciding to stay and play in Arizona, you can opt for a four-nights stay to be included in your package.

That gives you plenty of time to partake in Super Bowl XLIX activities and ensures you get the full Super Bowl experience while in town.

And I'm talking nice, luxurious hotels, folks. Without an Official Ticket Package, you're not going to find any open rooms at these resorts and further, prices are going to be much higher than you're expecting if you choose to book a la carte.

Take a look at these stats regarding how hotel prices sky-rocket when the Super Bowl comes to town>>

NFL International Series: Atlanta Falcons vs Detroit Lions Preview

  
  
  

London NFL On LocationA few weeks ago, the 2014 NFL International Series kicked-off with the Miami Dolphins defeating the Oakland Raiders 38-14 in London. This week, the Atlanta Falcons will host the Detroit Lions at Wembley Stadium for the second of three games abroad this year.

Not only is this game set to be historic for being played at Wembley Stadium, but it's also the first NFL game to be aired in the morning in the United States! The game has a 2:30 p.m. kick-off time in London so it will be aired at 9:30 a.m. ET in the US. Better set those alarm clocks, Falcons and Lions fans!

Detroit currently holds a better record than Atlanta in their perspective brackets in the NFC, but each team boasts different strengths and weaknesses. Pair those facts with the knowledge that neither team is really playing "at home," and we have all the elements for a fantastic football game. This international match can really go either way.

With that being said, let's take a look at each team's record, the match-up and the players who will hold a key role in their team's performance.

How to Attend the NFL International Series in 3 Simple Steps

  
  
  

The 2014 NFL season is flying by; we're already in Week 7 and the 2014 NFL International Series is in full force! The Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions are preparing to take the field at Wembley Stadium in just a few weeks with the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars following match-up in tow.

For most NFL fans, the International Series is overlooked. They see it as just one more away game on the schedule. However, it should be looked at as an opportunity! 

QuintEvents NFL On Location NFL International Series DI4U0456Not only does the NFL International Series offer a chance for fans to see teams playing on equal playing fields since they're both on an unknown field in a foreign climate, but it allows supplies you with a European adventure!

Think about it. How many people have it on their bucket list to attend a game of their favorite team? Every single NFL fan. Further, think about how many people have it on their bucket list to visit Europe - more specifically London, England? A good majority. I'd wager you want to go! 

So why don't you go? The NFL International Series offers a way to check two things off your bucket list in an epic way! 

So what holds you back? Costs? Flights? Planning things abroad? 

Well, luckily, there's solutions to all of those concerns. You can attend the NFL International Series and you will! All you have to do is follow these three easy steps!

1. Plan Your Flight

The first step in planning your trip to London for the NFL International Series is to find a flight to London! London has two major airports you could fly into: Heathrow and Gatwick.

Heathrow is the larger of the two airports and is the busiest airport in Europe by passenger traffic, the third bussiest in the world and handles more international passengers than any other airport in the world. It's about 14 miles from the center of London and it has a direct line to the Tube, or London Underground.

Gatwick is much smaller than Heathrow, but is still the second bussiest airport in the United Kingdom. With that being said, Gatwick offers more points-to-points flights compared to Heathrow, so if you're trying to find a direct flight from your hometown, odds are you'll be flying into Gatwick. It's located about 30 minutes from center city and also has a direct line to the Tube as well.

With online tools such as Flight Finder and KAYAK, it's very easy to find cheap flights on reputable airlines to your destination. And be sure to start a frequent flyer account once you book your trip so you can begin earning rewards on your travel to London!

2. Select Your Game & VIP Access

Once you secure your flight, you need to secure your tickets to the game. Luckily with NFL On Location's Official Ticket Packages to the NFL International Series provided by QuintEvents, this step is easy.

There are four different package levels to select from: 

  1. Diamond Level
  2. Sapphire Level
  3. Deluxe Level
  4. Standard Level

While each package shares the overarching theme of tickets, hospitality and amenities, the hospitality venue and seating location is different for each level. 

QuintEvents NFL On Location NFL International Series DI4U0005For example, Diamond level packages offer Club Level seating near the 50-yard line; the seats are wider and padded in the Club Level, and you'd also have access to Club Wembley and it's amenities. Within the Diamond hospitality area, you'll be invited to enjoy a complimentary, deluxe three-course meal with open beer, wine and soft drink selections for three hours pregame, during halftime and one hour postgame. Additionally, you'll receive an invite to the NFL Friday Night Kickoff Cruise where you can meet NFL players and cheerleaders, and enjoy complimentary food options and open beer, wine and soft drink selections. An official NFL gift bag is also included.

Comparatively, Standard packages offer seating in the upper level sideline and access to the exclusive NFL Pregame Party adjacent to Wembley Stadium three hours pregame. Within this hospitality area, you'd be invited to enjoy a complimentary pregame menu and open beer, wine and soft drink selections. An NFL gift bag is also included.

How Super Bowl XLIX Awakens Your Senses

  
  
  

Our senses are a funny thing - we can attribute memories and feelings directly to smells, tastes or sounds. Think about it. The smell of fresh cut grass on a Saturday morning. The taste of a home baked chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven and then the taste that just melts in your mouth. The sound of glasses clinking together as everyone shouts "cheers!"

It's my guess that as I mention these things, you get nostalgic of things that hit home for you. Our senses are a big part of what create our everyday experiences. They're what turn moments into memories. They're what turn an ordinary action into something sensational.

When it comes to checking a big moment off your bucket list, your senses play a large part in what makes that moment so magical. This is especially true for big-time sporting events such as the Super Bowl! 

Could you imagine what it would be like to attend the Super Bowl without the element of sound? Think about how much not being able to hear the announcer make the calls or the fans around you cheering would take away from the overall experience.

I bet you hadn't thought about how big of a role your senses would play. Well, let's take a look, shall we? Without further ado, take a look at how Super Bowl XLIX can awaken your senses!

Really Experience Super Bowl XLIX

Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste, Touch.

Picture this: it's Super Bowl Sunday, you're in Arizona and you're going to the game! You wake up in the morning, throw on your team's jersey and head down to the lobby of your hotel room. NFL On Location staff is in the lobby greeting excited fans and reminding everyone to double-check they have their tickets and that they're not bringing any items not permitted into the stadium.

Once everyone has gathered and is ready to go, you and your fellow fans board the charter busses to be taken over to the stadium! It's time to join the NFL for a tailgate party!

SB XLVIII NFL On Location In Stadium 262Once you arrive at the stadium, you use your VIP Fast Access Pass granting you a quicker, more secure entrance into the stadium, and you make your way to your exclusive hospitality area.

Once you arrive at your hospitality area, your jaw hits the floor! The aroma of complimentary gourmet food options hits you and you see the premium open bar in the center of the room. In the far corner, fans are already beginning to line up excitedly as they're about to meet their favorite NFL players and cheerleaders, and you can hear the DJ calling out to others in the audience to sing and dance along to the music playing.

SB XLVIII NFL On Location In Stadium 044THIS is an NFL party and you get to have access to it for three hours before the game starts!

You and your group make your way around the hospitality area, noshing on the delicious food all around you and getting your fair share of cold brews. You take part in all the interactive elements going on around you and then you meet your favorite NFL players! Those pictures and autographs will be good for bragging rights later!

As hospitality begins to come to a close, you decide to head to one of the many merchandise stores in the stadium to redeem your $50 merchandise coupon. You can't attend the Super Bowl and leave without a momento, right?

As you hear the announcer say the National Anthem is up next, you make your way to your seats at the 50-yard line (seating locations dependent on package selected) and take in the view around you. As you scan every detail taking place on the field, you suddenly realize that yes, this is how the Super Bowl was meant to be experienced.

You spend the game on your feet, cheering your heart out, screaming for both good and bad plays, and participating in friendly smack-talking with the fans around you. The halftime show blows your mind - the volume and performance are incomparable to any other concert you've ever attended. 

Onfieldpostgame153As the clock counts down to the final minutes of the game and your team is about to become the Super Bowl XLIX Champions, you prepare yourself to bask in the celebration that's about to take place all around you. You're even going to be able to take the field yourself (Red Packages only)! 

When it's all said and done and you're back on the NFL On Location charter bus heading back to your hotel, you realize that nothing can ever touch the experience you just had at Super Bowl XLIX. That will be one memory that's with you for a lifetime!

Do You Want THIS Super Bowl XLIX Experience?

Does that sound like Super Bowl experience you've always dreamt of having? Then make your dreams become a reality today with 2015 Super Bowl Official Ticket Packages direct from NFL On Location and provided by QuintEvents!

See the Final Straight with Official Breeders' Cup Grandstand Tickets

  
  
  

Breeders Cup Experiences Breeders Cup Logo 2014One of the biggest fall meets in horse racing is almost here! In three weeks, the 2014 Breeders' Cup World Championships will be taking over Santa Anita Park with 13 races over two days. Thoroughbreds who have qualified via the Breeders' Cup Challenge series, the Graded Stakes Points system or the Panel of Experts will culminate in California to compete for the title of World Champion and some of the richest purses in horse racing.

In other words, if you haven't already secured your
Official Ticket Package to the 2014 Breeders' Cup, you're going to be missing out Oct. 31-Nov. 1! Luckily, it's not too late yet! You can still get access and plan your trip to Santa Anita, but you have to act fast. 

With Official Breeders' Cup Grandstand Ticket Packages provided through QuintEvents, you can get the coveted views and VIP access you're seeking at "The Richest Two Days in Sports!"

Take a look at the vantage point you could have from the Grandstand and find out what kind of exclusive amenities are included in an Official Ticket Packages.

The View From the Grandstand

The Grandstand at Santa Anita Park offers some of the most coveted views of the track! With Grandstand L-N or O-Q Ticket Packages, you'll be positioned on the third floor mezzanine level, so you'll have an unobstructed view of the starting line, the first turn, the last turn, the final straight, and the finish line. Not to mention, the large video board is located right across from you so even when the horses are on the backstretch, you'll be able to see the coverage.

BC Grandstand

The seats in the Grandstand are stadium-style bucket seats, so they're more comfortable than bleacher-style seats, and the area is open-air and covered. This means you have all the perks of being outside watching the races live, but you'll be offered shade from the California sun (and the surprise west coast rain showers).

Breeders Cup Grandstand L N Ad

Then, located just a short distance from your seat in the Grandstand, you'll find your VIP in-track hospitality venue with all your inclusions!

Official Grandstand Ticket Package Inclusions

Included in your Grandstand package is VIP access to an in-track hospitality venue. Inside, you'll find comfortable seating along with complimentary lunch and snacks, open beer, wine and soft drink selections, and a cash bar for premium beverages.

Hospitality provides you a place to sit down and reconnect with your group while grabbing a bite to eat or a drink to wet your whistle. The venue also offers simulcast TV coverage of the races so while you're inside, you won't miss a minute of the action on the track.

Breeders Cup Experiences Santa Anita Grandstand O Q QuintEvents 1Alternatively, the food court at Santa Anita typically does not have many places to sit due to the crowds and you'll find long lines waiting to purchase concessions. Hospitality access eliminates those hassles; it gives your wallet a break at the track and allows you to relax away from the crowded stands. And trust us, when you're at the track for two full days of racing, it's nice to have an oasis!

Within your Grandstand Official Ticket Package, you'll also receive a VIP Fast Access Pass allowing you a quicker, more secure entrance to the track, one parking pass per every four guests, and an Official Breeders' Cup Gift Bag brimming with official products and merchandise.

The Beginner's Guide to 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend

  
  
  

It is that time of year. The NBA kicks off its 2014-2015 season on Tuesday October 28th. This means that in only a few short months the NBA will showcase their very best in the 64th Annual NBA All-Star game. The all-stars from the East and West conference teams will face off on Valentine’s Day weekend in New York City!

Between the venues, the contests, the fans, and the game that showcases the league's best talent, there is a lot to take in. Follow our simple beginner’s guide to make sure that you get the most out of your once in a lifetime experience!

The Location

Known for being the mecca of basketball, New York City will host this year’s game for the fifth time in sixty four years. 

“Basketball may have been invented in Springfield, Mass., but its hearts and soul are in New York City through and through.”
-Brooklyn Nets owner Bruce Ratner 

The event will be split between midtown Manhattan and Brooklynn. Its logo is inspired by the New York City transit.

The Venues

Madison Square

The game will be held at the legendary Madison Square Garden. A beloved hub of history in the heart of New York, the Garden is a must-see when venturing to the Big Apple. The arena features a unique convex ceiling and is known for its Chaser Bridges that hang from the ceiling, providing fans with game views unlike any other.

The Barclay Center

The Saturday festivities will be held at the Barclay Center. Despite being built in 2012, the contractors remained true to the Brooklynn neighborhood, creating the center with a rusted outside to match the historic feel of the city. Located a mile from the Brooklyn Bridge, Barclay is right in the midst of the borough of basketball.

The Party

describe the imageThe NBA all-star game is so much more than a game. It is a celebration of one of America’s favorite sports with America’s favorite players. Historically, the game hosts multiple musical acts between the player introductions and renowned half-time shows. The game brings in celebrities and NBA legends, making it the perfect excuse for a party. Get your cameras ready and prepare yourself for a weekend you will not forget! 

 

“…. In terms of a big-time party weekend, the All-Star [game] blows it away.”
-Mavs owner Mark Cuban

The Contests

describe the imageEvery year the NBA puts on a series of contests the Saturday before the big game for the players and legends in attendance to participate in. There are four contests to make note of while attending the game. Here is a little breakdown of each:

1) Shootings Stars

One of the more unique concepts included in the all star weekend is the shooting star competition. It involves an NBA player picking a WNBA and former NBA player of his choice to compete in a time-based relay. For the last two years, the Heat’s Chris Bosh, accompanied by Chicago Sky’s Swin Cash and former Hawk’s hall of famer, Dominque Wilkins have been the champions.

2) Taco Bell Skills Challenge 

Duos from the respective conferences compete against one another in a relay, involving various dribbling obstacles, throwing a ball into a net that does not touch the ground, and a jump shot. The best duos from each conference face one another, and the team with the fastest time wins.

3) Foot Locker Three-point Shootout
NBA-All-Star-Game-2014-Three-Point-Shootout

Similar to the classic kids’ game around the world, the shootout consists of players attempting to make as many 3 pointers as possible in a time frame. The game can bring out the best (and worst) qualities in players from year to year. 

4) Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

The Dunk contest is the Saturday night all star weekend finale. Arguably the fan favorite of the competitions, the slam dunk contest. Players tend to get creative with this contest, making it the perfect opportunity to show off their ability and personality.

There’s no question that NYC provides an endless list of sights to see, food to eat, and people to watch. Madison Square Garden sits smack down in the middle of the NYC bustle, in close distance from the Bryant Park, Broadway and the Empire State Building, to name just a few. The Barclays Center is right down the road from beautiful Prospect Park, home of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and surrounded by museums and historical markers. 

Some Additional Tips

Take public transportation.

Trying to drive through NYC, especially when traveling back and forth between Manhattan and Brooklynn, can be incredibly stressful. Parking tickets can cost up to $50, as well. You have been warned.

Explore the different NYC communities. 

As with everything, NYC plans to do the NBA all-star game big. The NBA is partnering with all five borroughs of the city to host "community, grassroot" events throughout the weekend. 

Take advantage of being in the city of no sleep on Valentine’s Day.

There is nothing quite like a holiday in New York City. Enjoy the ultimate Valentine's Day weekend with your special someone, enjoying NYC's plethora of restaurants, chocolate shops and parks. You can ensure you have a romantic weekend along with getting to watch the big game. Before or after the game, head just a half mile to Bryant Park’s free skating rink that stays open late in the winter or catch a Broadway show the Friday before the festivities begin.
