The Super Bowl 2020, the 54th edition of the mega-event from the USA (officially “Super Bowl LIV”), casts its shadow before one. The Super Bowl will kick off on February 2nd in Miami Gardens, Florida. While the finalists will only be determined in mid-January, everyone is already talking about the megastars that will appear at halftime: Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. Wow the biggest hits of the two Latina pop icons – live! It’s not just J.Lo and Shakira’s first appearance on the halftime show; according to a tweet from sponsor “Pepsi”, it is the first joint appearance of the two pop stars.
Super Bowl: who against whom?
And who is there to see after the halftime show? That’s not decided yet! Which two teams will face each other in the Super Bowl 2020 will not be determined until mid-January. In the AFC Championship, the Tennessee Titan and the Kansas City Chiefs face off. In the NFC Champioship, the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers fight for their entry into the Super Bowl.
Super Bowl kick off as always on Sunday night
The kick-off takes place on Monday at 0:30 a.m. German time, in Miami Gardens it is still Sunday 6:30 p.m.
Super Bowl: Pro7 shows it live again
As in the past two years, Pro7 will broadcast the Super Bowl in 2020 for all German football fans. The broadcast starts on Sunday, February 2nd at 10:15 p.m. There are also free live streams on the Internet. PULS4 has secured the broadcasting rights in Austria.
Super Bowl: ratings are extremely high
In the United States alone, 115 million Americans will turn on the television at the Super Bowl – but it’s more of a social event that is more than just football. Around 47 percent of the audience will be female – so twice as many women will watch as at the Oscars.
In Germany, almost 1.8 million spectators watched the Super Bowl last year. At the top, Pro7 was able to generate a strong 47% market share. Also in the current season, the odds at the ProSieben Maxx sister station are rising steeply: up to half a million tune in every Sunday when the private broadcaster “ran NFL” goes on the air.
In the night from February 2nd to 3rd, one of the sporting highlights of the year is coming up. Not just in the US. In addition to the athletic participants to be determined, it is also not yet clear who will sing the US national anthem. Attention night owls: the halftime show will probably not start before 2 a.m. German time.
