About the Super Bowl LIV Business Connect Program:
The Super Bowl LIV Business Connect Program is a partnership between the National Football League (NFL) and the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee. The program aims to provide diverse, qualified and certified South Florida area businesses opportunities to compete for special event related contracts connected to the Super Bowl in Miami. The Business Connect Program is focused on creating contract opportunities for certified minority, woman, veteran, lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender-owned businesses.
