Nation-wide, or largely synchronous activities, such as the World Cup or Super Bowl, have impacts on the power grid frequency response. This paper examines the influence of these sporting events on power system dynamics using data collected from the Frequency Monitoring Network (FNET). The frequency data of the German power grid during the 2010 World Cup semifinal game and the U.S. power system during three consecutive Super Bowls are investigated as examples of societal event impacts on power frequency. The frequency observations and analyses demonstrate such significant effects on the power system. Additionally, featured characteristics are drawn from the frequency data and several special events during the Super Bowl are examined.
