Forbes is reporting that the Seattle Mariners home stadium which has been known as Safeco Field since 1999, will be renamed via a new naming rights deal with T-Mobile beginning with the 2019 MLB season. The naming rights deal with Safeco Insurance — 20 years for $40 million — expired this past season and Safeco decided not to renew. The T-Mobile deal could be for upward of $6 million per year.

Take Note: NFL, Partners Plan First Super Bowl Music Festival For SB LIII In Atlanta

UPDATED

By Barry Janoff

November 7, 2018: The NFL earlier this week unveiled plans for the first Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest, scheduled for Jan. 31-Feb. 2 just prior to Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3 in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta.

Run under the auspices of On Location Experiences, the official hospitality partner of the NFL, several key acts have been added to the three-day concert, to be held in State Farm Arena.

Friday, Feb. 1 will be headlined by Aerosmith, with a special guest still to be named.

Saturday, Feb. 2 will feature Bruno Mars and Cardi B.

November 5, 2019: After 52 Super Bowls, the NFL keeps looking for ways to make the Big Game even more super.

Enter On Location Experiences, the official hospitality partner of the NFL, which is working with league partner Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light, the official beer sponsor of the NFL, for the first Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest.

The three-day event is scheduled for Jan. 31 — designated as the EA Sports Bowl — Feb. 1 and Feb. 2, to be held in the recently refurbished and rebranded State Farm Arena, home for the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.

Super Bowl LIII will take place Feb. 3 in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home for the NFL’s Falcons.

Presenting partners also include StubHub and Ticketmaster.

Ludacris and Migos are already listed on a dedicated Super Bowl LIII Music Festival Web site for the Jan. 31 EA Sports Bowl, along with Lil Yachty, Lil Baby and Metro Boomin.

The performers for the other two days are currently being finalized.

OLE said it anticipates upward of 45,000 people attending the three-day festival.

“At On Location, we are always looking for new ways to elevate the Super Bowl experience, which is why we are very excited to present the first-ever Super Bowl Music Fest,” John Collins, CEO for On Location Experiences, said via the organization.

“This unique three-night music experience will provide tremendous engagement and activation opportunities for sponsors, appeal to corporate clients looking to entertain and give the fans in Atlanta an outstanding weekend of music talent.”

OLE said that the event would also feature celebrity and athlete appearances.

“Atlanta has an incredibly rich history in music, and it was important for us to draw inspiration for the EA Sports Bowl lineup directly from our host city,” Randy Chase, senior director-marketing for EA Sports, said via the company.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating Atlanta’s music culture with some of the city’s most successful and popular artists. We’ve got a great lineup announced already, and a few more surprises up our sleeves that are going to start the weekend off right with an incredible show.”

As part of Super Bowl week, the NFL is also staging Super Bowl Live presented by Verizon, which is being produced by Atlanta-native Grammy Award-winner Jermaine Dupri and will feature numerous music performers and other activation in Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta, free and open to the public (Jan. 26-Feb. 2).

Super Bowl Live presented by Verizon is also being presented in conjunction with OLE.

According to Peter O’Reilly, svp-events and club business development for the NFL, “The number of live, world-class events that fans can experience during Super Bowl week expands each year.

“The Super Bowl Music Fest will bring phenomenal talent and energy to the heart of the Super Bowl LIII campus in downtown Atlanta.”
