Canada's Official Super Bowl XLVII Parties bring the best of the NFL to Canadian Fans

Multiple cities played host to Canada's largest and most authentic Super Bowl Celebrations

TORONTO, Feb. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, NFL MVPs and Hall of Fame legends joined thousands of Canadian fans to watch the 49ers take on the Ravens at the second annual Official NFL Super Bowl Parties in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Presented by Bud Light, the parties proved yet again that an authentic NFL experience is possible north of the border. Those in attendance were entertained by former NFL players and cheerleaders and were treated to a best-in-class Super Bowl viewing experience.

The NFL and Bud Light brought the spirit, colours and sounds of New Orleans to the Sound Academy in Toronto, Stade Uniprix in Montreal, and the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.  The local parties brought fans an authentic NFL experience that was the next best thing to being at the Superdome. This year, due to popular demand, the NFL added four additional parties to the line-up, bringing an unparalleled NFL experience to Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Quebec City, complete with NFL cheerleaders, NFL prizes, and a top-notch viewing experience.

"These seven parties are a way for the NFL to bring a piece of Super Bowl XLVII to Canada, and we're excited to have delivered an unforgettable NFL experience to even more fans across the country," says Dan Quinn, Managing Director of NFL Canada. "Not everyone can be at Super Bowl in New Orleans, so we're happy to have established an authentically Canadian Super Bowl tradition that fans can look forward to."
