Report From the Super Bowl Walk Through
Going to the Super Bowl? January 31, 1999, 6pm. The media gates open at 3pm.

By Robert Deutsch, USA TODAY

Location: Miami's Pro Player Stadium (again), between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. Enter gate 'H". Canon Professional Services will be inside the stadium, at the "Home Plate Suite". Messengers may use Gate "A" or "H". Photo trailers are outside gate "A" in the parking lot. NFC is home team, on south side.

Overhead positions are: South side, sec 240, about 25 yard line (east), 2nd level row 1 East end zone 2nd level, sec 227 row 1 West end zone, 2nd level, sec 225 row 1 All are unobstructed, first row of 2nd level.

AP members generally need to contact the NFL for trailer space, not the Ap. Contact is Dave Cross.
The main media hotel is the Hyatt Regency Miami (downtown) and the media/credentialing center is the Convention Center (connected to the Hyatt).

The "overflow hotels" are the Sheraton Biscayne Bay,Wyndham Miami, Clarion, and Holiday Inn Downtown. All are in downtown Miami. Fly to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami.

Halftime: Gloria Estefan and Stevie Wonder. Photo day is Tuesday, Jan. 26 at Pro Player Stadium.

Questions about the new extended 3-foot "TV zone" on the sideline were asked. You can expect at least as many TV and NFL films cameras there, probably more. Fox has the game, and they will push the issue. Our concerns were voiced. However, no promises were made, except that the end zone will continue to be free from the additional cameras.
