Super Bowl 50 may not be until 2016, but preparations are already underway for the landmark game, which will be held in the brand new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. To help pay for the costs of holding this massive event, several Silicon Valley companies, including Google, Apple, and Intel, have each pledged $2 million.

This money will go toward funding the public costs associated with bringing a throng of excited sports fans from across the nation into the same city, such as police overtime.

Google’s Super Bowl celebrations usually involved a YouTube channel for rewatching all of the big TV spots that aired during the game, though this year they also ran a sale on music featured during the half time show on the Google Play Store.
