DENVER - NBC’s Sunday Night football begins its tour in Denver on Tuesday – and it made a pit-stop at the 9NEWS station.
We got a look inside the 45 foot-long bus.
The inside of the bus brings fans from the field to the studio. “It gives them an experience outside of the stadium,” said SNF Bus Social Media Producer, Adam Gatdula.
The buses newest feature is a replica of Sunday Night Football’s control room.
“This season – you can be your own director, choose what camera you want to be on the screen, change that out and then, of course, add the logo as a finishing touch,” said Gatdula.
It also features a replica of the Football Night in America Desk and a life size “Photo Bomb” wall.
“You can be your own news broadcaster,” said Gatdula. “We’ve got the microphones, the hashtags - #SNF and the Sunday night football flag. Sunday night is football night – but you know that.”
Fans can even take a photo with the signed player-of-the-game ball.
“It’s probably one of my favorite things because all of the players have touched it – they’ve signed it. It’s something else,” said Gatdula.
To celebrate the 2016 NFL Kickoff, the bus will be at the Kickoff Village at Civic Center Park on Wednesday from 3 p.m. till 6 p.m.
It will then travel to Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Thursday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“The Sunday Night football bus is a way for the fans to connect – aside from the games. An experience outside of the stadium,” said Gatdula. “So if you’re going to the game – look out for the bus.”
The bus will be attending 22 more games after kickoff.
It will be traveling over 23 thousand miles – visiting the host cities of Select Sunday and Thursday night football games.
“Once you’re on the bus – you get it. It’s one of those really great things being inside” said Gatdula.
