The MAXIM Pregame Experience

It wouldn’t be game day without a tailgate. And since you probably won’t be driving down to Atlanta with your buddies, your grill, and a cooler of beer, the next best thing is a Super Bowl pregame thrown by one of the biggest names in Super Bowl parties. Maxim Pregame Experience is back on Super Bowl Sunday for the first time in seven years and you won’t want to miss it! Don’t worry, they’ll bring the beer… and did we mention that DJ Snoopadelic is headlining?!

The Maxim Super Bowl Pregame Experience – When & Where

As you probably know, Maxim BIG Game Experience throws one of the most over-the-top, extravagant, model-filled Super Bowl parties on the night before the big game each year. This year is no different. Maxim Big Game Experience will still be partying late into the night on the Saturday before Super Bowl 53 (we’ve got tickets if you need ’em), but this year, they’re getting up early to put on an epic tailgate party too! You can be sure they’ll follow in the Maxim Experience tradition of lavishness to create one of the best parties anywhere in Atlanta on Super Bowl Sunday.

Last year, the no-fee, online ticket marketplace, TickPick threw an awesome Super Bowl tailgate of their own. But this year, they’re joining forces with Maxim Experiences to plan a pregame party that’s like nothing fans have ever seen before, complete with fab food, flowing top-shelf drinks, and the most exciting entertainment around.

On February 3rd, they’re hosting the Maxim Pregame Experience at downtown Atlanta’s ultimate sports bar, STATS. STATS Complex, an incredibly unique venue that interconnects STATS Brewpub, Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria and Twin Smokers BBQ – providing party-goers with a full-on bar and restaurant hopping experience that spans 30,000 square feet filled with flat-screen TVs, tables, dance floors and even a rooftop deck.

STATS is located only four blocks from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium so you won’t have far to walk – about half a mile – if you’ve got Super Bowl tickets. (Of course, you don’t need to have Super Bowl tickets to come to this pregame!) The expansive venue is equipped with plenty of LCD flatscreen TVs, projector screens, and of course, an epic rooftop deck. It once hosted the Adidas VIPs from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and still contains some of the original artwork if you want to take a look back at sports history!

The Best in Entertainment, A Good Cause… and DJ Snoopadelic!

You’ll need to shake the hangover and get yourself hyped up for a big day of pregame entertainment on Sunday. The Maxim Pregame Experience will have DJs throughout the entire venue to keep you dancing – there will even be music up on the rooftop! Best of all, Pro Hall of Famer and NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders is hosting the party. DJ Snoopadelic, will put on a special show and DJ set to get pregame guests hyped. You might even catch some celebrities and professional athletes partying too. In the past, Maxim Experiences have attracted the likes of Lil’ Wayne, Ludacris, Justin Bieber, Kate Upton, Terrell Owens, and Josh Norman. A Super Bowl tailgate really can’t get much better, can it?

It can. Maxim Experiences and TickPick are helping out a couple of great causes too. The party will feature a silent auction with lots of awesome sports memorabilia that you’ll have the chance to bid on. A portion of those proceeds will go to benefit causes like Warrior Rising, a nonprofit that supports veteran entrepreneurs in their business endeavors with mentoring services, partnerships, and funding, as well as 22KILL, an organization that raises awareness and combats suicide by empowering veterans and their families through traditional and nontraditional therapies. The party will also honor a few Medal of Honor recipients in attendance!

According to TickPick co-founder and co-CEO Brett Goldberg, “As the only fan-forward secondary ticket market, we’re thrilled to host our customers and football fans for the best pregame party at one of the best sporting events of the year. And certainly, Deion Sanders and Snoop know how to host a party.”
