How to watch the Super Bowl 2022 in UK
The Super Bowl will be shown live on BBC One from 11:30pm.
You can stream the game live on BBC iPlayer via a host of devices including smartphones and tablets.
Fans can also watch the game live on Sky Sports NFL and Main Event.
Alternatively, you can also watch the game via NOW without signing up to a contract.
Fans can also tune in via NFL Gamepass which has traditionally shown full US TV coverage of the game including the hallowed adverts. It remains to be seen whether this will be the case again in 2022.
How to watch the Super Bowl in the US
In the US, Super Bowl broadcasting duties are on a three-year cycle between NBC, CBS and Fox.
This was supposed to be a CBS year to broadcast the event, but a network trade has taken place meaning they took last year’s Super Bowl to avoid clashing with the 2022 Winter Olympics coverage. They places switched with NBC, who are on duty this time.
The commentator and analyst roles are yet to be fully confirmed for 2022, but legendary broadcaster Al Michaels has been a regular feature on the rotation since 1988 – from ABC to NBC – and is likely to feature again despite speculation he may move to Amazon Prime Video as they ramp up their coverage in 2022. He is typically paired with Cris Collinsworth.
In 2021, Jim Nantz and Tony Romo brought all the coverage of Super Bowl LV as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers demolished the Kansas City Chiefs.
Where is Super Bowl 2022 being held?
The Super Bowl will be held in SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California – shared home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
The 70,000-capacity stadium, opened in 2020, can be expanded up to a staggering 100,240 for the Super Bowl.
Some reports had previously suggested the game could have been moved if Californian officials brought in tighter COVID restrictions – with a move to the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium touted as a replacement – but this has not materialized.
When is Super Bowl 2022 halftime show?
The Super Bowl halftime show is the moment worlds collide. Sport and music come together for a baffling, head-scratching 12 minutes of riotous color and noise. 2022 will be no exception.
The halftime show should take place at around 1am in the early hours of Monday 14th February, but keep an eye on the game because it could come around sooner or later.
Five artists will perform in the show. Five. Dr Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige. Expect fireworks – literally and metaphorically.
