Sneak Peek: Long Beach NFL Kickoff Experience
The National Football League kicks off the 2022 season in Long Beach on September 8 with the NFL Kickoff Experience, celebrating all things football, fun and music. The free event – open to the public – will feature games, interactive experiences and photo opportunities as well as a concert by J Balvin, one of world music’s best selling, most streamed artists.
A large crowd is anticipated to head to Alamitos Beach, located at the intersection of Shoreline Drive and Alamitos Avenue. Intersected by Long Beach’s popular bicycle and pedestrian path, Alamitos Beach is close to the city’s thriving downtown area.
“This not only gives us an opportunity to reach fans in Long Beach, but Alamitos Beach is also a great backdrop for it,” said Steve Farago, senior manager, NFL Events. “We know they’ve done concerts at Alamitos Beach before, and the Grand Prix occurs there on Shoreline Drive. The fact that it’s right next to the marina will, along with the palm trees, give a good sense of place to the event.”
