To qualify, the Super Bowl 59 Suppliers website states that businesses must be 51% owned and operated by a minority, a woman, LGBTQ+, a person with disabilities or a veteran.

Applying companies must also have a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Certification.

In March, New Orleans City Councilman Eugene Green said that while not every business will be accepted, it is still a great opportunity.

“There are always going to be challenges in this arena, but people have done business, and, since 1997, which doesn’t seem so long ago. I know some businesses that are still in business, that are doing business in other areas, but they got their start with the Super Bowl,” said Green.
