Super Proximity

We’ve got the numbers on the football fans flocking to our stadium.

This year’s Super Bowl will be in Santa Clara, and a lot will be happening on campus the day before the game. Join us for Super Saturday.
Levi’s Stadium, site of Super Bowl L on Feb. 7, 2016, is 103.84 football fields from campus. Broncos helped design and build this palace of sport. Whether you’ll be there in person or one of 100 million fans spending Super Sunday in front of a TV, consider inhaling some fresh air at SCU on Super Saturday. A number of super things will be happening.

Tickets for SCU Super Saturday events are free but must be acquired in advance online. We’ll post information on that as it becomes available. In the meantime, here’s more info from the City of Santa Clara Super Community Celebration.
