One of the most exclusive events of the Super Bowl week will be the 2018 Players Tailgate party, where ticket-holders will get to mix with celebrity chefs, NFL stars and global celebrities.

It's been announced that Guy Fieri will be back for a third year to host the Bullseye 2018 Players Tailgate Minneapolis, which will see a 30,000-square-foot, climate-controlled pavilion created on the corner of Portland Avenue and South 3rd Street.

The Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives presenter will craft an all-you-can-eat menu that will be prepared by a slew of celebrity chefs to be announced in the coming months.

The tailgate party is one of the big events of Super Bowl Sunday, with doors opening at noon ahead of the evening spectacle.

Last Super Bowl, around 40 active NFL players were in attendance, including Odell Beckham Jr. and Dak Prescott, and celebrities including super model Adriana Lima and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki have also attended.

The price to attend the party? Just the small matter of $750 – $50 more expensive than it cost in Houston last year.

It's the biggest tailgate party Bullseye has ever hosted, and is located across the street from a skyway entrance – allowing fans to walk in comfort to U.S. Bank Stadium for the game.

The pavilion will be lined with "private tables and soft white leather furniture seating areas," with ESPN's pre-game coverage shown on large screens as fans mingle with the rich and famous.

If you want an idea of what to expect food-wise, here's the menu for 2017 Super Bowl.
