Allstate Sugar Bowl – Radio Station Coverage Information
If you are a radio station planning to cover the Allstate Sugar Bowl, here is some information which may be of value to you.
CFP Vaccination Requirement
Per College Football Playoff policies, proof of vaccination will be required for all media covering the Allstate Sugar Bowl. Media will be required to present proof of vaccination when picking up their credentials and when accessing the Superdome, as well as for other events.
If requested, we can arrange for radio stations to be able to set up in a “radio row” style location at our official media hotel (Marriott Convention Center) during the week leading up to the game – there will be charges from the hotel for power and phone/Ethernet lines. Contact John Sudsbury (email@example.com) if interested.
Press Conference Feeds
All official press conference audio and video is only available from our official feed. Please make sure you have the proper equipment and cables to receive this feed. Composite video is via BNC, and audio (mic or line level) is via XLR. If you are capturing our feed to a personal computer, you will need adapters to connect your capture device (Canopus, Elgato, Etc.) to the mult. Generally, the capture devices use RCA connectors as inputs – Thus, for video, you will need BNC to RCA male, and for audio, you will need XLR female to RCA male. Recording on a VCR or camera will require BNC to the input on the device, generally BNC, and XLR female to the input on the device, generally XLR male. SDI/HD video with embedded audio is via BNC. You will have the ability to pull a separate audio feed via XLR if needed. For further information, please contact Ray Garofalo (Ray@TheProlineGroup.com).
Pregame or Postgame Shows
If you plan to do any live pregame or postgame shows, please contact John Sudsbury (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP to inquire about availability of space at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, as well as to verify technical needs.
If you plan on doing in-game score and game updates from the press box, please contact John Sudsbury (email@example.com) ASAP so we can arrange for these to be the least intrusive for other media members working in the press box.
Game Day Media Meal
The media meal will be served in the Crown Royal Signature Club (Gate G) on the ground level of the Superdome from 3:30-7:30 p.m. Halftime snacks will be provided in the main press box as well as in the Media Work Room on ground level.
