No event brings Americans together quite like the Super Bowl. Held annually since 1967, the NFL's championship game is regularly viewed by more than 100 million frenzied football fans from coast-to-coast and millions more around the globe. This page contains all of the stats, facts and info you need to enjoy the most anticipated game of the year.

When is the Super Bowl?

Super Bowl LV, also known as Super Bowl 55, will be played on Sunday, February 7, 2021 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Kick-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET. 

Who is playing in the Super Bowl?

Super Bowl LV will be played between the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Kansas City Chiefs. Only time will tell who will take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 2021.

How can I watch the Super Bowl?

Super Bowl LV will be broadcast on CBS, for the second time in three seasons. Veteran announcer Jim Nantz has been tabbed to handle play-by-play duties and will be joined in the booth by former NFL quarterback Tony Romo. Tracy Wolfson, Evan Washburn, and Jay Feely will join the pair as sideline reporters.

How long is the Super Bowl?

The Super Bowl is made up of four 15-minute quarters and a half-hour halftime extravaganza. When you factor in advertisements, replays and the occasional injury, the entire game typically takes three hours and 45 minutes from the opening kick-off to the final whistle.

Who is performing on the Super Bowl halftime show?

The 2021 Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show will be headlined by three-time Grammy Award-winner The Weeknd. The eagerly anticipated event will be co-produced by Jay-Z's Roc Nation company and will air live in 180 countries around the globe.

Why does the Super Bowl have Roman numerals?

Roman numerals may seem like an odd choice at a time when most people think IV is an abbreviation for intravenous rather than the number four. However, the NFL uses Roman numerals for the Super Bowl to prevent confusion among fans since the game is played in the calendar year following a recorded season. For instance, Super Bowl LV will be played in 2021 despite the fact that the 17-game regular season was staged in 2020.

It may seem deflating to some, but when it comes to Super Bowl titles, everyone is still chasing the Patriots.

  • Only seven franchises have won consecutive Super Bowls
  • The NFC and AFC are tied with 27 Super Bowl victories each
