Our program extends 11 days/10 nights and includes a full itinerary to make the most of your time traveling with our team. Our short-term program was designed this way for a purpose. We believe it gives us enough time to accomplish what we set out to do, and creates a cost-effective program allowing all deserving participants to get involved.

PLACEMENT WORKING DIRECTLY WITH one of the largest sporting events on the planet:
Secure a spot to work Super Bowl LVI festivities in Los Angeles! Our team will get to experience the buzz the Super Bowl brings to a town while working hand in hand with Super Bowl staff. The week leading up to Super Bowl Sunday is filled with fan experiences, concerts, autograph sessions, Lombardi Trophy photo sessions, and more! The exciting part about this partnership is our team will get 1-on-1 interaction with the team that has been hired to successfully run Super Bowl LV. The Living Sport team will work alongside them as we learn what it takes to work on your toes in the sport industry!
