American Football’s biggest night is just a couple of days away, and we can’t wait to give you a low down of all the juicy tidbits making the rounds.
For football lovers, the Super Bowl is probably the biggest show-stopper event to look forward to in the sporting world. And, as with everything in America, you can expect a bigger, louder, extravagant showing than last year’s.
The San Francisco 49ers will battle the Kansas City Chiefs on what is arguably the biggest national stage in Prime TV – last year nearly 98 million Americans tuned in to catch the game. At the same time, 30-40 million overseas audiences also watched the show. So, we can expect some record-breaking viewership for this year’s game too.
Talking of this year’s season-ending game, it is the 54th Super Bowl final, since the first Super Bowl in 1966 and it marks the end of the 100th NFL season.
So, what’s making the news for the 2020’s Super Bowl?
Where is the Super Bowl LIV?
The 54th Super Bowl will be played at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The stadium, home to both the Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes, was recently renovated in a $450 million enhancement project.
This year’s Super Bowl will make it the 11th times the city of Miami will be hosting the event while the Hard Rock Stadium would be hosting its sixth Super Bowls.
When is Super Bowl LIV?
The Super Bowl will take place on February 2, 2020, making it the second time the game has been played on the same date in six years. Be sure to set your alarm for 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff time. Though, there are several pregame entertainments and corny ads to catch up with too.
What is the Super Bowl 2020 odds?
While the bookies gave the San Francisco 49ner’s a +4500-point odds to win the Super Bowl at the beginning of the season, the pundits lowered the odds to under +350 during the postseason as the 49ner’s were the last undefeated team in the regular season to enter the playoffs.
However, for the 54th Super Bowl, the Kansas City opened at 1 1/2 as favorites over the San Francisco as per Unibet odds which makes this a pretty close game. The over/under line is at 54.0 currently, though.
Commercials during Super Bowl?
As expected, big brands will leverage the millions of eyeballs watching the game to promote their products or push their messages. And, since it is an election year, expect to see some campaign ads from politicians too.
If the news making rounds is anything to go by, then you will be seeing Donald Trump and his Democratic opponent Michael Bloomberg campaigns on your screen. There are even reports of Facebook and Twitch securing spots on the show.
Which artist is performing at the Super Bowl half-time?
For a lot of people, especially if you don’t really care about sports, the half-time show is probably what you are looking forward to. Over the years, the NFL has tried to put on a great show for fans, and it is not going to be different this year.
Last year Maroon 5 headlined the half-time show, the year before that was Justin Timberlake.
For the 2020 Super Bowl, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira have all confirmed they would co-headline this year’s half-time show in Miami. So, get ready because you are sure in for some Latino hip-blasting treat.
Who’s performing the National anthem at the Super Bowl?
Another highlight of the Super Bowl is the national anthem rendition. This year Demi Lovato will join the ranks of singers such as Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Mariah Cariah, Alicia Keys and P!nk who have taken center stage to sing the Star-Spangled banner in football’s biggest night.
