On Friday, January 31, AT&T’s DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET Lounge held its third day of VIP programming in Miami, FL ahead of the Big Game.
The high-end hospitality space hosted a fireside chat with Peyton Manning (Former NFL Quarterback, Denver Broncos), as well as meet & greets with fan-favorite NFL athletes including TJ Watt (Linebacker, Pittsburgh Steelers), Derek Watt (Fullback, Los Angeles Chargers), Derrick Henry (Running Back, Tennessee Titans), Aaron Jones (Running Back, Green Bay Packers), and Jalen Ramsey (Cornerback, Los Angeles Rams).
The exclusive event had fans in awe as they gathered to listen to inspirational speeches and take in moments of gazing at their glorious sports heroes. Attendees were especially smitten with the recognition of their admiration for all teams. The NFL legends spoke on how fans make the game. From the stadium to watching on DIRECTV they bring out the thrill for the sport.
“It means a lot to me. These people who support me mean a lot. They’re the reason I’m able to play football. Without fan support there’s no football,” Aaron Jones told The Knockturnal when asked about the dedicated and loyal followers of the sport.
Going on he spoke about the unique opportunity to connect with fans at the DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET Lounge in Miami.
“It’s a no brainer to me. If I can talk about the game that is something that’s easy for me and I love to do,” the player stated. “I love interaction with fans, so just putting a smile on their face and hearing their questions that they have is special.”
DIRECTV will continue to host programming and events through today before the big game.
