Super Sunday HQ: Saving fans time & money when planning their Super Bowl week.

For millions of football fans all over the world who are lucky enough to experience the festivities surrounding the Super Bowl, it’s one of the most memorable times of their lives. From the NFL Experience to the nightlife to the rowdy tailgate events, the celebration of the Super Bowl has something for everyone.

But I know firsthand how overwhelming and costly it can be to plan, with all the activities, parties, and events to choose from during Super Bowl week.

About Me

My name is Ken Spalasso. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Though I'm a practicing attorney in California, I'm a serial entrepreneur who is passionate about sports, entertainment, and technology. You can read more about me in the bio section.

Creating a killer guide to Super Bowl events

In 2007, I couldn't find a one-stop resource for all the information on Super Bowl events, so I created one myself. I began with a visual list of parties, organizing over 100 events, by nights of the week. Not only did I constantly update this guide, but I also published interviews with event planners, and articles about the latest news on events. My goal was to make planning Super Bowl week simple and easy. The response was unbelievable. People wanted more. So I decided to deliver even better content.

Enhancing our news coverage with party footage & celebrity interviews

My next step was to form a video production crew and travel to the Super Bowl host city each year to capture all the excitement involving the star-studded events, from a new perspective.

 Soon, just like Access Hollywood, EXTRA, & Entertainment Tonight, we were covering the red carpet, interviewing athletes and celebrities. We also provided party footage to give people an inside look at the events. Viewers found our content fresh, original, and entertaining and watched our segments to help them decide which events to attend the next time around.

9 Years of travelling to bring you the best Super Bowl Party coverage

Over the past 9 years, Super Sunday HQ has become the only independent TV show to capture the exciting Super Bowl festivities annually, enduring snowstorms in Dallas, rain showers in Tampa, and freezing temperatures in NYC.

We also try to pay it forward as much as we can, featuring many great charity events that support our troops, fund youth programs, fighting hunger.

As our fan base has grown, so have we. We even launched a mobile app to help people plan and share their Super Bowl week.

Our content has been featured on the NFL Network, as well as other major channels. We've been interviewed on national TV shows, sports talk radio, and major newspapers as the go-to resource for Super Bowl event news. I may have started Super Sunday HQ, but it is the fans who have kept it going for so long.

But we still need your help. Even with all the fan appreciation, great press coverage, and access to events, unfortunately, major corporate sponsors haven't reached out to support our world leading resource.That's why we need you.

How Everyone Can Help Us Keep The Dream Alive

We do our best to provide you with a free guide, free videos, and free mobile app. All we ask is your support in the form of a contribution towards our video production costs for Super Bowl 50. After 9 Years of travelling to the Big Game, the Super Bowl is coming to us, here in the Bay Area!

We want to produce the best content to commemorate this great experience for everyone. We need to replace outdated equipment. Cameras, microphones, tripods, software, lighting, etc. We started out using one camera in our first year. Because so many events are scheduled each night. we now have 5 teams with 5 sets of audio, photo, and video equipment every day during the weekend! That's pretty insane but our goal as always been to be the #1 resource in the world.

We also  want to pay our crew a fair rate. We need to provide transportation to all the events. We want bring in media and video professionals to improve our production in all aspects. 

We have some surprises waiting for you this year, but we need your help to ensure that we can pull them off. We will stretch our dollars to get the most form our limited budget. We have the access, the reporters are on standby and so are experienced camera operators and video editors. Let's put them to work and capture all the sights and sounds of the most historic Super Bowl in history. Thank you for all your support to keep the dream alive for everyone.
