Plot Synopsis

Each year since 2007, DirecTV has hosted a flag football game during Super Bowl week, featuring Hollywood celebrities, A-list models, Playboy Playmates, former NFL players, and current football stars, as well as musical entertainment. The game has been held on sandy gridirons in the Super Bowl host city, as the stars and celebs played two 20-minute halves for the first six years, switching to four 10-minute quarters in 2013. Venues have included: Lummus Park (Miami Beach, FL) in 2007; South Bridge (Scottsdale, AZ) in 2008; Progress Energy Park (St. Petersburg, FL) in 2009; South Beach at 21st and 22nd streets (Miami Beach, FL) in 2010; Victory Park (Dallas, TX) in 2011; Victory Field (Indianapolis, IN) in 2012; Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World (New Orleans, LA) in 2013; and DTV SuperFan Stadium (Hudson River Park Pier 40) in 2014. The inaugural event, which was not televised, was held on Thursday, February 1, 2007. One year later, on Thursday, January 31, 2008, the 2nd annual game was broadcast live for the first time on DirecTV's 101 Channel. Starting with the 2009 game, DirecTV has aired the game live on the Saturday before the Super Bowl. Each event also has featured at least one musical act, usually performing after the game, including: New Found Glory in 2007; Josh Kelly and Fall Out Boy in 2008; LL Cool J in 2009; The All American Rejects in 2010; Maroon 5 in 2011; The Fray in 2012; Pitbull in 2013; and Paramore in 2014.
