The 55th Super Bowl is just around the corner. If you are already getting excited about the biggest event of the US sports calendar, and you are unable to attend it in person, you will want to plan how you are going to watch the match. So, here are the various options available for watching Super Bowl LV.
When is Super Bowl LV and what time is kickoff?
Super Bowl LV is scheduled for February 7. Kickoff is at 6.30 pm Eastern Standard Time, which is 3.30 pm Pacific Time and 11.30 pm Greenwich Mean Time. Pregame footage will begin several hours in advance, though. The game itself will last around four hours, including a 30-minute halftime intermission.
Which teams are competing?
It is too early to know which teams will be competing, but if last year’s champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, can repeat their win, as they are tipped by many to do, they will be the first team to win back-to-back titles since the New England Patriots achieved the feat in 2004 and 2005. But other teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Green Bay Packers, the New Orleans Saints, and the Seattle Seahawks still stand a chance of competing at the 2021 Super Bowl.
