THE Super Bowl is almost here – and now we know who will face off for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
One of the most watched sporting matches in the world, the Super Bowl draws in seasoned gridiron supporters and new fans every year.
When is Super Bowl 2020?
THIS year’s showpiece will be held on Sunday, February 2.
It will take place at the Miami Dolphins home, Hard Rock Stadium.
Miami won’t be involved themselves after a poor season, but they had a huge hand in sealing the New England Patriots fate after a dramatic Week 16 win which sent the Pats into a doomed wildcard against the Titans.
The 100th season of the NFL will be decided in Miami Gardens for the sixth time.
South Florida last hosted a Super Bowl in 2010, when the Saints beat the Colts to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
What time does it start in the UK?
BEING an NFL fan in the UK means staying up into the early hours of the morning.
But the Super Bowl doesn’t start at an obscene hour this year – even if you have work on Monday morning.
Play will begin at 11.30pm UK time.
As such, it will go through to around 2.30am – providing there’s no overtime drama.
Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?
YOU can watch the Super Bowl on free-to-air TV on these shores.
The game will be shown live and in full on BBC ONE – and as such, the BBC iPlayer.
Sky customers can also choose to watch with their favourite pundits on Sky Sports Main Event and Action.
NOW TV is also an option for non-subscribers – and the service is currently offering a deal giving you a one month sport pass for just £20.
You can also listen to live coverage of the Super Bowl on talkSPORT from 11pm.
Which teams are playing?
THE teams have been decided.
In the AFC conference, San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers to reach their first Super Bowl since 2012.
Meanwhile, Kansas City Chiefs continued their sparkling form to make their first Super Bowl appearance since 1970.
