The Players Tailgate has always been about raising the bar and creating a super high end culinary experience and letting fans get up close and personal with The Who's who of football super stars which is what makes this event the best event on Super Bowl Sunday.

Bullseye Event Group announced today that their selection for the prestigious The Players Tailgate event will be hosted by world renowned celebrity chef and TV personality Bobby Flay. The premiere in-person tailgate event takes place on Super Bowl Sunday in Glendale AZ, prior to the big game. Event tickets are now on sale at https://bullseyeeventgroup.com.

Master Chef Bobby Flay will officially take the hosting reigns for the 2022 pre-game event on February 12, 2023, to celebrate Super Bowl LVII. The Headliner for The Players Tailgate is an honor the likes of Marcus Samuelsson and Guy Fieri have held in recent years. As the headline host, Bobby Flay will work with The Players Tailgate Featured Chef and Food Network alumni, Aaron May, in bringing in the stable of chosen top Celebrity chefs who host their own food stations and menu to feed and interact with the attending VIPs and NFL Players, as well as co-host from the mainstage. ESPN’s Sage Steele along with DJ Irie will return to emcee the event among dozens of celebrities and athletes for The Players Tailgate.

Host Bobby Flay is a culinary icon and shares his knowledge and enthusiasm for food through his cookbooks, Emmy award winning cooking programs and across his social media platforms with over 1.8 million followers. Since debuting on Food Network in 1994, Bobby Flay has continuously hosted programs that bring cooking tips and information on American regional fare to a national audience. His first show, Grillin’ & Chillin’, premiered in 1996, followed by Hot Off the Grill and Boy Meets Grill. Bobby currently stars in Beat Bobby Flay, the Emmy-award winning Bobby Flays Barbecue Addiction, Food Network Star, Iron Chef Gauntlet on Food Network, as well as Brunch @ Bobby’s as seen on both Food Network and sister network Cooking Channel, which has earned Flay Emmy nominations and wins over his career. Flay has also been honored as the first chef to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Flay works tirelessly to challenge the way Americans view and taste food – making it bold, zesty and always fun. This is the first-year hosting for Bobby Flay after an impressive list of Headliners for Bullseye Event Group that has included Marcus Samuelsson & Guy Fieri.

Each year, the top chefs in the world are chosen to set up food stations at The Players Tailgate creating custom dishes for the VIP guests. Past chefs have included: Todd English (James Beard Award Winning Chef), Antonia Lofasa (Top Chef, Iron Chef America), Michael Voltaggio (Bravo Top Chef Winner, Food Network, restaurateur), Brooke Williamson (Bravo Top Chef Winner), and Leonard Botello (owner of Truth BBQ and Food Network Chopped winner). Later this month, Chefs Bobby Flay and Aaron May will release the names of the chefs chosen to participate in Phoenix.

“Each year, Bullseye Event Group evaluates things to do to separate ourselves from the rest and remain the leader for entertainment and hospitality during the biggest sporting event of the year,” says Bullseye Event Group CEO Kyle Kinnett. “This event has always been about the fans getting up close and personal with the who’s who of Super Star football players that fans see playing in NFL. This event has always been about raising the bar and creating a super high end culinary experience at the same time, it’s what makes this event the best event on Super Bowl Sunday” Kinnett adds.

“The level of expectation we have for our event is unprecedented and internally we understand that. It’s our motto that if you have incredible food, then you have an incredible event. If your food is average, then so are you and so is your event. Bobby Flay helps us raise the bar and will fit perfectly with those 75 active NFL Super stars mixing it up at our event,” also adds Kinnett.

Bullseye Event Group also announces that the much-anticipated location for the 2023 Players Tailgate will be held on the grounds of the Tanger Outlet Mall adjacent to the State Farm Stadium grounds in Glendale, AZ on the big game day.

Bullseye Event Group will be creating the 75,000 square feet of VIP tailgating experience flush with red carpet, cabanas, huge LED screens, gourmet food, and top-shelf drinks. Guests include over 75 active professional football players talking about their experience playing on Sundays, signing autographs, taking selfies with fans while pre-gaming for Super Bowl LVII. The location can’t get any closer to State Farm Stadium, which is always the spirit of the Players Tailgate.

The State Farm Stadium will serve as The Player’s Tailgate mainstage backdrop where the emcee will interview many of the current and active football players as well as where guests will experience other amenities including:

  • Large LED screens
  • State-of-the-art AV/lighting/speakers
