Meet Rigoverto, winner of DIRECTV The Big Game contest

Sometimes a lucky draw seems too good to be true – Round-trip airfare for two, door-to-door limousine transport, two nights in a 4-star hotel and a football-filled weekend complete with tickets to Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, AZ. For Rigoverto from California, that dream weekend came true when he won the Big Game Giveaway Sweepstakes, a contest open exclusively to DIRECTV customers.

Rigoverto has been a DIRECTV customer since 2016 and entered the raffle for a chance to go to the Super Bowl, never expecting him to win. “I always thought it would be great to see the Super Bowl in person.” As a Raiders and 49ers fan, he wasn’t going to be able to watch his favorite team in the Big Game, but it was an easy decision for him to put down roots. “I’m a football fan in general…When the Eagles beat the 49ers, I knew I would support the Chiefs in the game.”

Each year, the week before the Super Bowl, the host city hosts a football fan party known as the NFL Experience.

Rigoverto’s big weekend started with a limo at the airport. Hailing from a small town in California, with the nearest airport an hour away, the ride was an unexpected luxury. Upon landing in Phoenix, another limo was ready to transport Rigoverto and his guest, his nephew, to their hotel in downtown Phoenix, their home base for the weekend.

Then there were the fan festivities. The NFL experience is a staple of Super Bowl weekend every year, and is a football fan’s dream come true, with punting, passing and kicking competitions, and even a chance to take a photo with the Lombardi trophy. range.

After a good night’s rest in a luxury hotel, the day started with a limo ride to the stadium to get there in time for all the pre-game festivities. Once Chris Stapleton hit the final note of the national anthem, it was time for kickoff. The game was an unprecedented game and it couldn’t have been more exciting for Rigoverto, who said: “The Super Bowl itself was the biggest memory, being there in person was fantastic and watching the spectacle of the halftime was great!”

Getting out of the game can be a problem, but not when you’re commuting in a limo. Rigoverto’s trip ended with a return flight the next day and a luxury limo ride back to his front door. All in all, it was an unforgettable weekend.

“Thank you DIRECTV! You guys are great at putting this all together!” – Rigoverto
