The American football season finale is a real spectacle every year with plenty of pre- and during-game entertainment and sports. It starts at 12:30 p.m. and can be seen on ESPN, ESPN6 and BBC One.
For the second year in a row, the Kansas City Chiefs went to the Super Bowl. He won the presidents last year. The opponent is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where star player and six-time winner Tom Brady first played this year.
Pirates play in their playground in Tampa, Florida. This has never happened before in the over fifty year history of the Super Bowl. The location is determined years in advance. This is the 55th Super Bowl and is therefore also called the “Super Bowl LV”.
