The Super Bowl is one of the most exciting events of the football season. Last year the big game
was the most-watched television event in U.S. history with 111.5 million viewers. Preparations
for game day are underway. People who plan on hosting parties are deciding on what food to

insurance – liability insurance and cancellation insurance. For a large Super Bowl party
at your house, liability coverage in addition to your homeowner’s policy will make sure
you are adequately covered.
