In 2014, a small team of San Francisco Bay Area residents was assembled to work on what would be the biggest Super Bowl the NFL had ever staged - the milestone Super Bowl 50. The first Super Bowl in the Bay Area in more than 30 years, there was no municipal purse to tap, nor any roadmap to follow: this group had to develop its own playbook. In Big Game Bigger Impact authors Pat Gallagher and Stephanie Martin chronicle how the members of the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee came together with the region to not only host a Super Bowl, but also redefine the experience in the process. After the final whistle was blown, Super Bowl 50 was the most giving, most shared and most participatory Big Game to date. Former Host Committee colleagues, Gallagher and Martin provide an insider's look into lessons learned during the Host Committee's two-year run-up a lessons that could benefit any business a and how their culture helped to achieve a record-setting Super Bowl, both on and off the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I know from experience greatness can be achieved through hard work, determination and coming together as a team, and that's how the Bay Area community approached Super Bowl 50. Pat Gallagher and Stephanie Martin's book recounts the amazing story of how it all happened, and at the same time offers valuable insight that can help any company build a championship team. You don't have to love football to love this book.

Jerry Rice, Pro Football Hall of Famer and 3-Time Super Bowl Champion

I was proud to be part of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee effort and even more proud of how the Bay Area community put on a Super Bowl experience of a lifetime. In the Bay Area, we know a lot about being champions, and with Super Bowl 50, we had the chance to shine once again; (Host Committee CEO) Keith Bruce and I could attest to that. In Big Game, Bigger Impact, Pat Gallagher and Stephanie Martin share the story of how our community came together and set the bar for how all future Super Bowls should be experienced.

Steve Young, Pro Football Hall of Famer, 3-time Super Bowl Champion and Super Bowl XXIX MVP

Big Game, Bigger Impact takes you behind the scenes for an insider's peek into how the power of sports can create positive change. Gallagher and Martin make a fascinating business case for corporate social impact. A must-read for any executive looking to grow their business in a community.

Larry Baer CEO of the San Francisco Giants

Fittingly set in California's Bay Area, a destination synonymous with innovation and creativity, Super Bowl 50 redefined the consumer experience for large-scale sports and entertainment events. Big Game, Bigger Impact tells the compelling story of an effort that paid dividends for California.

Caroline Beteta, President & CEO, Visit California

There's nothing bigger than the Super Bowl. And there's never been anything bigger than the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl. It takes a real village to pull off something like that--a village of public and private sector giants! Big Game, Bigger Impact provides a fascinating look into what it took to accomplish something as big as the golden anniversary Super Bowl in a complicated city like San Francisco. It should be required reading for all organizers of world-class events.

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr.

For Super Bowl 50, we established an ambitious goal of 'redefining' the Super Bowl experience. This book recounts the incredible story of how that all happened [during our three-year journey together]. Pat and Stephanie tell the inspiring story of how we accomplished our mission, and how the San Francisco Bay Area came together to ensure that Super Bowl 50 would set a new standard for global sporting events going forward.

Keith Bruce

Big Game, Bigger Impact is the inspiring true story of how the San Francisco Bay Area community came together to redefine the Super Bowl experience.

Besides, it's an intriguing read that provides life lessons for all of us. I highly recommend it!
