The NFL Emerging Business Program is designed to provide local minority- and woman-owned businesses the maximum opportunity to participate in the Super Bowl procurement process. While participation in the program does not guarantee receipt of Super Bowl XLIII-related contracts, it is the intention of the Tampa Bay Super Bowl Host Committee (SBHC) that interested minority- and woman-owned businesses receive information on the Super Bowl procurement process and an introduction to potential purchasing entities.
