NOW: “It’s a once in 20 lifetime experience:“ Kenosha man, friend win Super Bowl Sleepover Contest

KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Most fans would give anything just to be inside the stadium on a Super Bowl game day.

But, a Kenosha man and his friend are doing something much better. It's perhaps the best experience a football fan can have. 

Nick Pagliari isn't just at the Super Bowl.

"I had Marriott points and I saw this online that you could sleep at the super bowl at the ultimate sleepover experience. It seemed like a dream come true," Pagliari said.

Inside Mercedes Benz Stadium is where the dream will come true. Saturday night, a suite converted to a hotel room for Nick and his friend Lucas.

They'll sleep there on Saturday night and be the first fans inside the stadium Sunday for the Super Bowl.

"It's a once in 20 lifetime experience. Not just a once in a lifetime experience. I can't imagine ever doing this ever," said Lucas Poull.

Lucas is fighting cancer. He gets his final round of chemotherapy Tuesday.

Nick bid 3,000,000 Marriott rewards points, got the suite, and invited his friend.

"I was almost like speechless. I said yes I'll come to the Super Bowl, I'm not going to say no," said Poull.

The winning package also included some swag like a helmet signed by Aaron Rodgers.

Poull will find out in March if he's cancer free.
