NEW YORK – Making a play for a gourmet game day at home? As an official sponsor of the NFL, Anheuser-Busch’s Stella Artois is reuniting former New York Giants quarterback, Eli Manning, and former New York Giants wide receiver, Victor Cruz, to help fans dominate their Super Bowl LV home-gate with Stella Stadium Bites. The dynamic duo will take to the field at MetLife Stadium together once more to give fans the play-by-play of four winning recipes.
“While it may seem like a Super Bowl unlike any other, we want to inspire football fans to still savor the scrumptious tradition of coming together, in the safest way possible, over an exciting game, a meal and Stella Artois,” said Lara Krug, VP of Marketing, Stella Artois. “Stella Stadium Bites makes game day prep a breeze, and for everyone needing some extra guidance, Eli and Victor are ready to sub in with a virtual play-call to keep you from making any missteps along the way.”

WATCH MVPS TURN INTO MOST VALUABLE CHEFS
For fans who could use some extra coaching in the kitchen, Victor Cruz and Eli Manning will reunite on the field they once shared to show people how to cook the recipes, play-by-play, ahead of game day in a special, soon-to-be-released installment of “Stella Sessions.”
“I had a blast suiting up, chef-style for the first time ever, with Eli Manning, and breaking down our favorite game day food plays together with Stella Artois,” said Victor Cruz. “While this year is a bit out of the big game norm, I hope it will inspire people to still come together safely to enjoy the best football tradition – delicious food savored with a cold Stella.”
“Victor and I have been able to cook up some great plays on the field over the years, so it’s exciting to get a chance to test ourselves in this regard and catch up over some Stella Artois,” said Eli Manning. “You can’t go wrong when you pair the best game in the world with a fantastic meal and Stella Artois.”
The upcoming “Bring It Home” Stella Sessions episode will air on Monday, January 18. Fans can look out for it on the brand’s channels by following @StellaArtoisUSA on Instagram and Facebook and @StellaArtois on Twitter.
