The Big Game


It's been a week of crowds, concerts and super fans; and now it's finally time for the big game.

The countdown to Super Bowl 50 has brought an estimated one million people to the San Francisco Bay Area. And while locals weren't exactly happy with the street closures and extra foot traffic everyone involved is calling the event a success.

Officials with the host city San Francisco say the city has practiced for this with previous events including the America’s cup and Giants’ victory parades.

He says the super bowl is the single largest sporting event in the world and the teams playing in it aren’t the only ones feeling the pressure.

“The amount of work that the host committee has to produce and create to be ready for Super Bowl 50, to be ready for that week, to be ready for that game day is massive.”

Bruce says the committee is responsible for everything from fundraising to where the teams will stay to public safety.  read more »
