Nickelodeon and the National Football League are teaming up to get kids and families ready for the big game with brand-new, specially produced content and coverage of the events leading up to Super Bowl LII, across Nickelodeon, Nicktoons and TeenNick.
The event, held at Super Bowl Experience, is hosted by Nick Cannon and features NFL athletes including Drew Brees, Stefon Diggs, Todd Gurley, Luke Kuechly, Deion Sanders and DeMarcus Ware, team captains Breanna Yde and Ricardo Hurtado (School of Rock), and a halftime performance by JoJo Siwa (Lip Sync Battle Shorties), according to Nickelodeon’s press release.
Called Superstar Slime Showdown at Super Bowl the show is an hour-long competition special, airing Sunday, Feb. 4, pitting two teams of NFL athletes and Nickelodeon stars against one another in a series of fun and exciting football-themed physical challenges.
Mimicking the four-quarter format of a football game, teams will compete in four NFL-inspired challenges with a Nickelodeon twist, including slime-filled obstacle courses and an end zone celebration dance off. The team with the most points will win the title of Superstar Slime Showdown Champion.
In addition to the title, each Superstar Slime Showdown team will be competing for a local children’s charity. In collaboration with Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play partners, PLAYWORKS and Special Olympics, the winning team will receive a $15,000 donation, and the runner-up will receive a $5,000 donation.
