“This AZ girl is coming home!!!” Sparks wrote alongside a poster promoting her role as in-game host at this Sunday’s big game. “Beyond excited to be your #SBLVII in-stadium host at this weekend’s game! Chiefs, Eagles…whoever you got—I’m excited to be there with you through it ALL!”
This Sunday’s Super Bowl LVII will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Sparks is originally from nearby Phoenix, Arizona. As she wrote in her post, “This stadium holds a special place in my heart. See you Sunday, Arizona!!!”
Sparks also has a special connection to the game of football in general, as her father Phillippi Sparks is a former NFL player. He played for the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys before announcing his retirement in 2001.

Ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl, Sparks will be releasing a new single this Friday called “Stadiums,” in collaboration with NFL Network. As Sparks told fans on Instagram earlier this week, they’ve been hearing the song on the network leading up to the big game.

This year’s Super Bowl halftime performer is Rihanna. The game begins at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, and fans can watch it all go down on FOX.
