Courtyard By Marriott Taps Packers’ Davante Adams To Announce Return Of Super Bowl Sleepover Contest

The 2020 season was a career one for Green Bay Packers’ receiver Davante Adams. The four-time Pro Bowler totaled 115 receptions on 149 targets for 1,374 yards and a league leading 18 touchdown receptions.

As fans return this season, Adams is helping Courtyard by Marriott by sharing some exciting experiences, including the announcement of the return of the Courtyard Super Bowl Sleepover Contest, where one lucky winner and guest will wake up inside of SoFi Stadium the morning of Super Bowl LVI. Courtyard has been the NFL’s official hotel sponsor since 2011.

“Me and Courtyard share a passion for travel, seeing those stands filled back up with fans and having that electric, NFL experience back,” Adams said. “It’s a cool opportunity for a lucky winner and a guest to wake up inside the stadium the morning of the Super Bowl in LA. They’ll have their Courtyard-level suite they’re sleeping in and outside their window, they’ll have the field. They’ll be able to wake up and say they were the first ones in the stadium, get ready for a luxurious day before, hopefully, watching us out there.”

Along with the sleepover contest, Marriott Bonvoy will also be offering exclusive NFL bucket list experiences to members on the Marriot Bonvoy Moments platform by using points to redeem.

With a lack of fans last season, Adams said last season required players bring their own juice. He also mentioned having to really watch the refs if there was a play on the far sideline because there weren’t fans to let him know if a receiver caught a ball inbounds or whether it was incomplete. While his stats didn’t reflect his adjustment to silent stadiums, Adams said that there were small things he had to tweak.

“I’m a guy who feeds off the energy of the fans heavily,” he said. “I’ll catch a 25-yard pass and, typically, I’m spinning the ball and I’ll be looking at the fans to try and pump them up. It took me a few games to stop doing that because I realized I wasn’t pumping anyone up.”

After falling one game short of the Super Bowl for the second consecutive season, the Packers are hoping this is the year that get over that hurdle even with the futures of Adams and quarterback Aaron Rodgers being uncertain. Not that he needs any further motivation, but this years’ championship game is in the East Palo Alto native’s home state.

“That’s what we play this game for; the opportunity to go win the ultimate prize,” said Adams. “There’s only one team that’s happy at the end. To be in that position after being in four NFC championship games would be a dream come true. We have another crack at it now and it’s a long season, but that would definitely be really cool.”
