NFL Experience: General information

The National Football League will produce the 19th NFL EXPERIENCE at the Dallas Convention Center, beginning January 27, 2011. The NFL Experience is the most exciting continuous event surrounding Super Bowl XLV -- pro football's interactive theme park offering participatory games, displays, entertainment attractions, kids' football clinics, free autograph sessions and the largest football memorabilia show ever.

The NFL Experience ticket includes all games and attractions. $25 for adults and $20 for children under 12. Tickets are available by calling (866) TIX-4NFL (849-4635) or visiting Ticketmaster.

NFL Charities donates a $1 million Super Bowl Legacy Grant to benefit youth in the local community from proceeds from ticket sales to NFL Experience each year.  These funds are used to establish enrichment centers for under-served youth in diverse communities. In 2011, the North Texas Youth Education Town will open its doors in Arlington as a result of proceeds generated by NFL Experience at Super Bowl XLV. 

All adults and children must complete a waiver to participate in the interactive games. To print the waiver, click here. Please bring the completed waiver to the NFL Experience to avoid lengthy lines at the Game Pass Kiosk.
