Return to the Desert: FedEx Delivers Vince Lombardi Trophy to Super Bowl LVII in Arizona
Iconic Tiffany & Co.-Crafted Trophy Arrives at the Super Bowl Experience Presented by Lowe’s in FedEx Express Sprinter Delivery Van
Phoenix, Feb. 4, 2023 – For the third time in 23 years, the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy has arrived on scene in Arizona via FedEx, the Official Delivery Service of the NFL. A FedEx Express delivery van carried the trophy to the Super Bowl Experience Presented by Lowe’s, officially kicking off the weeklong celebration leading up to Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles.
“Each year, FedEx is honored to play an essential role in the tradition of Super Bowl Week with the delivery of the Vince Lombardi Trophy,” said Jenny Robertson, Senior Vice President, Integrated Marketing and Communications at FedEx. “Arizona continues to be a great host of the Super Bowl, and we’re excited to help formally kick off football’s most-celebrated event.”
This year, David Hokin, a FedEx Express courier with 36 years of service, had the honor of delivering the Vince Lombardi Trophy to the Super Bowl Experience Presented by Lowe’s. Awaiting Hokin’s key delivery was Super Bowl LII Champion Zach Ertz. Together, the duo showcased the trophy in front of NFL fans and media before inviting attendees to snap a photo with it.
The historic Vince Lombardi Trophy, which was handcrafted by artisans at Tiffany & Co., is made of sterling silver and depicts a regulation-size football in kicking position on a pyramid-like base that features the words ‘Vince Lombardi Trophy’ and ‘Super Bowl LVII’ along with the NFL shield.
Fans in the Phoenix area can stop by and view the trophy up close at the Super Bowl Experience Presented by Lowe’s starting Saturday, Feb. 4 & Sunday, Feb. 5 and again on Thursday, Feb. 9 – Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Phoenix Convention Center. On Sunday, Feb. 12, it will be awarded to either the Kansas City Chiefs or Philadelphia Eagles, commemorating the Super Bowl LVII Champion for the 2022-2023 NFL season.
“Seeing the iconic Vince Lombardi Trophy up-close at Super Bowl Experience is a thrill for football fans across the country,” said Peter O’Reilly, NFL EVP of Club Business and League Events. “Our friends at FedEx ensure the trophy’s safe and timely delivery each year, which continues to be an essential part of Super Bowl Week.”
