Most Seahawks fans won’t be able to attend the Super Bowl next Sunday, but they’ll be well represented as PEMCO Insurance is paying to fly a massive 12th Man banner over and around the stadium in New Jersey throughout Super Bowl weekend.

The banner will be hard to miss, since it’s 100 feet high by 40 feet long, says PEMCO spokesman Jon Osterberg.

“If it were hung over the edge of the building it would extend all the way down to the sidewalk and across the street adjacent so this thing is really large.”

The company is hoping to get at least 12,000 fans to sign it over the next week before it’s sent to New Jersey. They’ll be taking it around town to various events where fellow 12s can offer their support to the Seahawks.

“Our thinking is it’s a way to unite our Seahawks community and it’s going to rally our team even from 3,000 miles away,” Osterberg says.
