JERSEY CITY --  Mayor Steven M. Fulop and the City of Jersey City, in partnership with the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce, will welcome the two Super Bowl teams to Jersey City at two separate welcoming events on Sunday, January 26th, 2014. 


The events will feature activities for children – including a Field Goal Kicking Contest – music, giveaways, hot chocolate, and more, with participants able to watch as the teams make their way to their hotels.  

Children attending both events will be entered into a drawing to “serve” as Deputy Mayor for a day alongside Mayor Fulop.  One child will be chosen from each event. Additionally, 100 Liberty Science Center passes will be distributed at the 8 p.m. Seahawks Welcoming Event. 

The City raised donations for the events from Mack-Cali, the Hyatt, Newport Development Associates, the Westin, the Jersey City Medical Center and the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce. 

This weekend, the City will also install banners along Christopher Columbus Drive the route the players will take from Newark-Liberty Airport to their hotels in Jersey City.  For the next two weeks, Christopher Columbus Drive will be known as Super Bowl Drive. 

“We are excited to welcome the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, as well as all of their fans, to Jersey City,” said Mayor Fulop. “Working closely with the NFL has been a great opportunity to showcase Jersey City as we prepare for the nation’s largest annual sporting event.  We hope that everyone attending the Super Bowl experiences everything Jersey City has to offer.”
