LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Hundreds of thousands of football fans are expected in Las Vegas for Super Bowl Sunday and preparations have started for watch parties around the valley.
The owner of the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, Derek Stevens, said he was expecting nearly 7,000 fans to fill the man caves, tables and stands when the Patriots take on the Rams.
"There's an element when you can have this many people outside together and the cheering and there's something special about being outside. People to seem to have a lot more fun,” Stevens said.
Crews have been working around the clock for the last week to get the Events Center ready for its Biggest Big Game Bash.
"I think this Super Bowl on every level is going to break records," Stevens said. "I think from betting handle, interest level, I think such a great match up you've got the east coast west coast, you've got the old guard with Brady and Belichick you got the new guys like McVay and Goff and now with LA being in the market I think it's going to be so great for all of Las Vegas."
Doors at the Downtown Events Center open at 11 a.m. on Sunday. Admission is free on a first come, first served basis. Man Caves and tables can be reserved for a beverage minimum. For more information, click here.
