A collection of NFL MVPs, Pro Bowlers and Hall of Fame legends will be visiting Canadian cities on February 3rd to take part in official Super Bowl XLVII parties.
Held at Stade Uniprix, Montreal’s event will include a performance by the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders and visits from NFL legends Marcus Allen and Jevon Kearse. Allen, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2003, captured the NFL’s MVP trophy in 1985 and was named MVP of Super Bowl XVIII. Former Tennessee Titan and Philadelphia Eagle Jevon Kearse recorded 74 sacks and made three Pro Bowl appearances over 11 seasons.
Former Heisman trophy winner and long-time Oakland Raider Tim Brown headlines Toronto’s official Super Bowl XLVII party, which will be held at the Sound Academy. Brown recorded 14,934 receiving yards (5th all-time) and 100 touchdowns over 17 seasons. Brown will be joined in Toronto by Brian Westbrook, a two-time Pro Bowl running back whose 9,875 career yards from scrimmage is most in Philadelphia Eagles history. The Toronto party will also feature a performance by the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders.
The Vancouver event, held downtown at the Commodore Ballroom, will feature a performance by the Seattle Seahawks cheerleaders (the Sea Gals) and an appearance by 2005 NFL MVP Shaun Alexander. Alexander played nine seasons as a running back in the NFL, guiding the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl appearance in 2005. Alexander will be joined in Vancouver by three-time Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro-Bowl defensive back Darren Woodson. Woodson played 13 seasons in the NFL, all with the Dallas Cowboys.
Each party will also include a viewing experience focused on multiple large screens.
