Super Bowl LVI is scheduled for Sunday, February 13, beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET / 3:30 p.m. PT. For the first time, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California will host the event.

Unlike in 2021, when Raymond James Stadium was limited to 30 percent capacity, about 70,000 people are expected to fill SoFi.

Fans will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test, in addition to wearing masks when not eating or drinking.

Where to watch Super Bowl LVI

Super Bowl LVI will be broadcast in the United States on NBC and the Peacock streaming service, which also have the broadcast rights to the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Because it is the most watched television event in the United States, the network will suspend the broadcast of Beijing 2022 to show the NFL championship game.

The game can also be followed live on, in addition to the NBC Sports, NFL and Yahoo Sports apps.

The game will be played between the Cincinnati Bengals, winners of the AFC Conference, and the Los Angeles Rams, who won the NFC Conference.

The Bengals came in with a record of 10 wins and 7 losses in the regular season. Also, in the playoffs they defeated the Las Vegas Raiders (26-19), the Tennessee Titans (19-16) and the Kansas City Chiefs (27-24).

It will be the third final for the Bengals, who have never won the Vince Lombardi Trophy. In previous attempts they fell to the San Francisco 49ers (Super Bowl XVI in 1982 and Super Bowl XXIII in 1989).

The Rams, meanwhile, reached the final with a record of 12 wins and 5 losses in the regular season. In the playoffs, they beat the Arizona Cardinals (34-11), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (30-27) and the San Francisco 49ers (20-17).

This is the fifth Super Bowl for the Los Angeles team, although they have only been able to win it once: Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000 against the Tennessee Titans.

In the other attempts, they failed in 1980 against the Pittsburgh Steelers (Super Bowl XIV), in 2002 against the New England Patriots (Super Bowl XXXVI) and in 2019 against the New England Patriots (Super Bowl LIII).

In addition to the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the winner will walk away with a 22-inch-tall, seven-pound sterling silver soccer ball on a stand. Additionally, each player on the winning team gets $157,000, while those on the losing team get $82,000.

Why is it called the Super Bowl?

According Washington Post, the origin of the name of the Super Bowl is not 100 percent clear. However, it is known that he acquired it after the National Football League (NFL) merged with the newly created American Football League (AFL) in 1966.

Although for some years the game was called, with some variations, the “AFL-NFL World Championship” game, the organizers were aware that a more catchy name was needed.

One of the most popular legends is that the suggestion came from Lamar Hunt, founder of the Kansas City Chiefs: his children liked the “super ball”, and that the name “bowl” (bowl) would be about phonetic confusion.

Who will be at the halftime show

One of the most anticipated milestones of the Super Bowl is the halftime show. For the 2022 edition, the participation of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar is confirmed.

At the opening of the NFL, country music singer Mickey Guyton will sing the United States national anthem, while Jhené Aiko, exponent of the rhythm and blues genre, will perform the emblematic “America the Beautiful”.

How much does a part time ad cost?

A 30-second slot for Super Bowl LVI will cost up to $6.5 million; most slots had sold out before the NFL regular season began, according to The Washington Post.

Although Super Bowl ads were popular, they became more expensive after the famous Apple’s “1984” ad.

In 2021, the commercials sold for a record $5.6 million each and were seen by nearly 100 million viewers.
