‘Shaq Bowl’ participants include Anthony Anderson, Tim Tebow, Olivia Culpo, Diplo, Ezekiel Elliott, Nelly and Offset.

Shaquille O’Neal — always a familiar face on the Super Bowl party scene courtesy of his wild bash Shaq’s Fun House — is heading to Tampa to mount a Sunday kick-off show, Mercari Presents The Shaq Bowl.

Broadcasting live from Tampa in a custom-built stadium, the event will feature athletes, celebrities and artists across two teams competing in challenges to win the first-ever Shaq Bowl trophy. The three-hour special kicks off at 3 p.m. ET and will stream free on Facebook and on the event’s website as well as being simulcast by LiveXLive across over 20 platforms including LiveXLive, YouTube, Twitch, TikTok, and Twitter.

“With no in-person events this year, I teamed up with Mercari to create The Shaq Bowl and connect Americans on the biggest day for sports of the year,” says O’Neal. “Featuring a ton of my celebrity friends competing in viral challenges, plus superstar musical artists all live from Tampa, prepare for the most fun and action-packed Big Game Sunday show ever.”

O’Neal will be among the few stars on the ground in Tampa this weekend as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has dampened the typically bustling Super Bowl events scene. Hosted by former NFL stars Terrell Owens and Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson along with Sarah Walsh, the event will even have its own mid-game entertainment courtesy of The Shaq Bowl Halftime Show Presented by Pepsi Stronger Together. It will feature a performance by Migos and DJ Diesel with a surprise A-list guest.

As far as the competition portion, suiting up for Team Kansas City will be Diplo, Ezekiel Elliott, Olivia Culpo, Quavo, Steve-O and The Miz. Competing on behalf of Team Tampa Bay will be Anthony Anderson, Drew McIntyre, Nelly, Offset, Tim Tebow, and Winnie Harlow. Also featured: A race between O’Neal and artist Bryson Tiller in Papa John’s Epic Stuffed Chair, billed as “the ultimate sports-watching seat to enjoy the new Epic Stuffed Crust.”

Pepsi Stronger Together is partnering with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) to donate $100,000 in grants to help struggling restaurants. Pepsi will also rollout out “Restaurant Battles,” a showcase for four local Tampa restaurants that will see them compete for a $10,000 grant. Other sponsors include Corona, Quaker Chewy, Skillshare, Xersion, JC Penny, Bacardi, Truff, Aeropostale, Nautica, and Emsculpt Neo.

The Shaq Bowl is produced by Medium Rare, a company that previously rolled out Gronk Beach, Shaq’s Fun House, The Sports Illustrated Awards, Shaq vs Gronk, and Black Entrepreneurs Day.

    This event sounds awesome.
    Last year my wife and i went to Shaq’s Fun House and Gronk Beach both in Miami on Super Bowl Weekend. These events were beyond incredible.
    The same production company Medium Rare is producing The Shaq Bowl. Based on what we attended this viral event should be terrific.

      Day. I watched all 3 on YOU TUBE and they were outstanding. Can’t wait to see SHAQ BOWL show.

        Just watched Gronk Beach 2020 on You Tube, awesome!! I guess because he’s playing on Sunday that he won’t be on the show!

  2. Recently heard about this event on TMZ. it sounds awesome. Just watched a replay of Shaq’s Funhouse 2019 and 2020 and the parties shown were off the chain. Looking forward to see Shaq’s newest show this coming Sunday.

  3. I have been to 4 Shaq FunHouses and they were totally awesome. The promoters combine EDM, sports, carnival into one big party. They bring in major EDM performers and draw all kinds of celebrities. To be perfectly honest, I’ve never seen parties like these anywhere else. I am interested in seeing what they do for a VIRAL event From what I heard, they were going to do a live Shaq’s fun house at the convention center but because of the virus created a viral event instead.

  4. I watched The Shaq Bowl yesterday and it was 3 hours of great programming. Loads of celebrities involved in all kinds of contests and interviews.

  5. Roy Colby says...

    Shaq was a terrific host.

  6. Benny Haber says...

    Tebow was the best contestant.
