Super Bowl Sunday: When, Where, What, Who!
All sports fans know that Super Bowl Sunday is arguably the biggest day of the year. No matter what teams are playing, every fan gets excited and dreams about getting their hands on Super Bowl tickets. Naturally, fans need to be prepared well in advance. That’s why we wanted to share all the pertinent details about Super Bowl LVII, including some advice on how to get a great deal on last-minute tickets to the game.
When is the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl LVII will be played on Sunday, February 12, 2023. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time, which will be 4:30 p.m. local time in Arizona.
Where is the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl LVII will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. State Farm Stadium is the full-time home of the Arizona Cardinals but also hosts the yearly Fiesta Bowl. It also hosted the Final Four in 2017 and is set to host the Final Four again in 2024.
This year will be the third time that State Farm Stadium, previously known as the University of Phoenix Stadium, has hosted a Super Bowl. The first two became instant classics, setting the bar high for Super Bowl LVII. In February 2008, the stadium hosted Super Bowl XLII between the Giants and Patriots. The Patriots entered the game hoping to put the finishing touches on a perfect season, only to be upset by the Giants 17-14.
In February 2015, the stadium hosted Super Bowl XLIX between the Patriots and the Seahawks. In the closing seconds, the Seahawks came within a yard of winning their second consecutive Super Bowl. However, New England’s Malcolm Butler intercepted a pass in the end zone to secure the win for the Patriots.
Who is Playing in the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl LVII is set to be a memorable game with the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs facing off to be crowned champions of the NFL.
Both teams have shown impressive performances throughout the season. With a thrilling playoff run behind them, the Eagles, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, managed to reach the Super Bowl. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes will lead things on the Chiefs' side.
With talented rosters, strong defenses, and sheer determination, this game will be a showdown you don't want to miss.
Who’s Performing at Halftime?
During the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show, Rihanna will be the main performer. However, it’s expected that there will be other performers joining her on stage. The caveat is that we may not know until halftime who is also part of the performance. Last year’s Super Bowl halftime show included Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Mary J. Blige, putting a lot of star power on stage at one time, setting the bar high for Rihanna and company in this year’s show.
How Can I Watch the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl LVII will be broadcast on Fox. For the first time, Kevin Burkhardt will be providing the play-by-play with Greg Olsen serving as the other commentator, as they are the new broadcast team for Fox’s biggest game of the week. Fox will also have Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi reporting from the sidelines. Rules expert Mike Pereira will also be in the booth to comment on any controversial decisions by the referees and explain any confusing situations concerning the rules. Fox will also provide several hours of pre-game coverage, as well as postgame reactions and ceremonies.
How Much Are Super Bowl Tickets?
The average cost of a ticket is usually around $6,000-$7,000. The minimum price of a ticket is typically in the vicinity of $3,000-$4,000. Naturally, fans who want premium seats or to be close to midfield, especially in the lower level of State Farm Stadium, can expect to pay at least $10,000 per ticket, if not more. Just keep in mind that unless you’re a season-ticket holder for a team and more than a little fortunate, you will probably be buying your Super Bowl tickets on the secondary market. This can lead to a lot of fluctuation in ticket prices based on when you buy them and where in the stadium the seats are located.
When is the Best Time to Buy Super Bowl Tickets?
The best time to buy Super Bowl tickets is in the last few days before the game, sometimes even on the day of the game. The demand for Super Bowl tickets is the highest in the days right after the conference championship games. But that high demand also leads to higher ticket prices. The fans who get the best prices are the ones who wait until a few days before the game. This is when ticket holders with no intention of going to the game start to lower their prices, which is when fans can find the best deals on Super Bowl tickets.
