Super Bowl Party with Foursquare

The Super Bowl is the most watched and one of the most popular sporting events in the world.  To celebrate, Foursquare has teamed up with the NFL to create their first ever global venue and a series of 3 Super Bowl XLV badges.  Fans lucky enough to be watching the game live in Dallas at Cowboys Stadium will be able to unlock this terrific looking badge featuring the Vince Lombardi trophy.

Foursquare users from around the world will see the global venue located in the trending area of their apps.  When you check-in be sure to give a shout-out to the team you are pulling for and mention either “Go Steelers” or “Go Packers” to unlock the team’s badge.  This team shout is similar to what Foursquare did during the 2010 NBA Finals with the Lakers and Celtics badges.  It is unknown at this time whether shouting for both teams will unlock both like it did with the NBA badges.

Fans who earn one of these Super Bowl badges will receive a 20% discount code to use at NFLShop.com.  Foursquare is encouraging fans to share check-in photos from your own Super Bowl party on Twitter using the hashtag #4sqSuperBowl and will be selecting users to receive some cool Foursquare merch.  There will be plenty of parties and crowded bars around Atlanta for the big game. I’ll be at a friend’s house who built this killer snack stadium (pictured) last year for it and I can’t wait to see the stadium he builds this year.

Where will you be watching the big game?  Do you know of any metro Atlanta businesses that are running Super Bowl check-in specials?
