The Official Hotel of the NFL Announces Return of the Super Bowl Sleepover Contest Plus Exclusive Moments Packages for Marriott Bonvoy Members Throughout the Upcoming Season

Courtyard by Marriott, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s extraordinary portfolio of 30 hotel brands and the Official Hotel of the NFL, is celebrating the return of travel and live football games this fall with the launch of its fan favorite, Courtyard Super Bowl Sleepover Contest. NFL fans can enter for a chance to spend a night at the stadium on the eve of the Super Bowl LVI by sharing how football fuels their passion for travel.

NFL away games create unique opportunities for fans. These games give fans a reason to travel and explore new parts of the country and world while uniting with other fans. As the exclusive NFL hotel partner for over a decade, Courtyard and Marriott Bonvoy will bring fans closer to the game they love all season, through NFL experiences that embrace the transformative power of travel.

Calling All Football Fans
Commemorating the highly anticipated return of live sports, Courtyard is kicking off the NFL season by calling on fans to share their most memorable stories showcasing how their love of football has fueled their passion for travel. The winner and a guest will be awarded a long-awaited opportunity to travel and wake up inside the stadium in Los Angeles on Super Bowl Sunday.

“Whether traveling near or far, following a favorite team on the road provides unforgettable moments that forever transform us,” said Diane Mayer, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, Classic Select Brands at Marriott International. “We are excited to once again, bring our NFL partnership to life by celebrating the powerful memories that fans have made while traveling for the love of football, an experience that they have missed so much in the past year and a half.”

The winner of the Super Bowl Sleepover Contest will enjoy an overnight stay inside a stadium suite transformed into a Courtyard guest room overlooking the field. In addition to the sleepover, Courtyard will host the winner and a friend for a weekend of awe-inspiring experiences with access to exclusive events, culminating with tickets to Super Bowl LVI.

Fans can enter by submitting a video on TikTok, Instagram or Twitter (or a photo on Instagram or Twitter) with the hashtag #CourtyardSuperBowlContest, showcasing how their love for football has fueled their passion for travel.

Entries will be judged on creativity, relevance, originality and impact. Finalists will advance to an interview round and the Courtyard Super Bowl Sleepover Contest winner, along with their guest, will be announced in January. For more information on the official rules, visit
