StubPass's Featured Event of the Week: NFL Tickets -- Kickoff 2010

NEWARK, DE--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) - StubPass, a premier provider of guaranteed and hard-to-find event tickets, is pleased to announce available NFL tickets for the much anticipated kickoff celebration for the 2010 football season.

The NFL has announced that the official kickoff for the 2010 regular season will take place on September 9, 2010, at the Superdome (tickets). The New Orleans Saints will host the Minnesota Vikings at 8:30 pm.

New Orleans is looking to avoid the "Super Bowl Hangover" often experienced by championship teams. Unfortunately, in the history of the NFC South, there has never been a repeat champion. 

Minnesota, unsure of the return of Brett Favre, is determined to head into New Orleans with a bang. New Orleans finished the 2009 regular season 13-3, beating the Indianapolis Colts (tickets) in the Super Bowl (tickets). Minnesota finished their post-season last year with a loss to New Orleans after Brett Favre threw an interception late in the NFC championship game. Forcing the game into overtime, the Saints won the coin toss, and kicked a field goal for the win.

Fans and players alike are eagerly awaiting the upcoming rematch. Jeff Davis, Marketing Liaison for StubPass, is seeing the demand for this game, "Fans are always eager to see a rematch of this caliber. New Orleans Saints tickets and Minnesota Vikings tickets are going at a rapid pace, and I'm not surprised."

In addition to what is sure to be a hard-hitting NFL matchup, the pre-game festivities are drawing significant attention of their own. At 7:30 pm, prior to kickoff, fans will enjoy opening acts The Dave Matthews Band and Taylor Swift (tickets). Both performances will be held in Jackson Square, and this marks the seventh year of the NFL holding the season opener at the reigning Super Bowl Champion's home field.

In September of 2009, Steelers (tickets) fans enjoyed the season opener against the Tennessee Titans (tickets), with entertainment provided by Tim McGraw and The Black Eyed Peas (tickets). In prior years, entertainment greats such as Keith Urban, Green Day, and Aerosmith (tickets) have participated in NFL kickoff weekend.
