On Friday, The 2024 Legends Party, in partnership with the NFL Alumni Association and USA TODAY, will feature NFL alumni legends including Hines Ward, Matt Ryan, Malcolm Jenkins and LeSean McCoy.

The event will begin with a star-studded red carpet and conclude with a performance from multi-platinum global superstar Jason Derulo. Derulo is a triple threat and frankly, one of the most talented people in showbiz.

The Legends Party will take place at AREA15 in Las Vegas on Friday, Feb. 9, and is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.

Special guest host Abby Labar and DJ Shapeshiftr will provide entertainment throughout the evening, and many other celebrities including Fat Joe, Sean Evans and Terry Crews will be in attendance.

“The Legends Party is the only way to kick off the Big Game weekend,” said Jason Derulo. “I am looking forward to celebrating with these athletes, special guests and all of you.”
