Some 80,000 football fans from around the world are set to pack into New Jersey's Met Life Stadium on Sunday for the first NFL Super Bowl championship played in the New York area, an event that has shone a fresh spotlight on the region.For fans from the New York area, the game presents a rare opportunity to see a Super Bowl without traveling to Florida, California or other warm-weather locations that often host what is typically the most-watched sporting event in the United States.The game's location, at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, some 10 miles (16 km) west of New York City, has posed logistical challenges for organizers, with events in the week leading up to the 6:25 p.m. ET (2300 GMT) kickoff spread among New York City, Jersey City and Newark, New Jersey.While much of the focus has been on New York, where a 3/4-mile (1.2 km) stretch of taken over by a four-day street fair where fans could try to kick a field goal, get a player's autograph or ride a 60-foot-high (18-meter-high) toboggan slide, the game has also been a boost to New Jersey.
