Regarded as the highlight of the sporting calendar in the United States, it does not get any bigger than the Super Bowl.
Here’s a look at all you need to know for the next instalment of the NFL’s grand finale, as franchises battle to reach Super Bowl LVII.
The 57th edition of the Super Bowl takes place on Sunday, 12th February 2023 with the highly-anticipated game due to kick off at 18:30 ET.
Super Bowl LVII will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The venue, which can host up to 78,600 people, was opened in August 2006 and is the home of the Arizona Cardinals.
Fox will broadcast Super Bowl LVII.
The LA Rams made home advantage count to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 at Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.
With 70,048 in attendance, Sean McVay’s Rams became just the second team in NFL history to win the Super Bowl in their own stadium, as they followed on from the Buccaneers the previous year.
Pop icon Rihanna is set to perform in the half-time show at Super Bowl LVII. From Barbados, the 34-year-old will join a long list of famous previous performers, including the likes of Prince, Madonna and Jennifer Lopez.
The New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers are tied for the record of the most Super Bowl wins. Both franchises have been crowned world champions on six occasions in their histories.
Legendary quarterback Tom Brady is the player to have won the most Super Bowls with seven rings in his possession.
Brady managed to bring six titles to the Patriots during his time in Boston, while he proved he could achieve the feat away from “Title Town” by guiding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to glory at Super Bowl LV.
While the exact cost of each Super Bowl ring is unknown, the NFL typically contributes between $5,000 and $7,000 per ring for up to 150 rings per team.
However, the value of the rings after they have been awarded can be much greater than this. For example, the rings of 2015 victors New England Patriots were reportedly worth $36,500 each, while owner of the New England Patriots, Robert Kraft, sold his Super Bowl LI ring for just over $1 million.
Bill Belichick tops the record of quarterback Tom Brady, with six rings as head coach of the New England Patriots and a further two rings with the New York Giants as defensive coordinator.
The MVP (Most Valuable Player) is awarded to the best player in a Super Bowl. Once again it's Tom Brady who leads the way with five Super Bowl MVPs, with quarterbacks tending to dominate the award due to their profound influence on results.
Four-time Super Bowl winner Joe Montana was named MVP on three occasions during his career, with Eli Manning, Terry Bradshaw and Bart Starr all claiming the award twice. Brady also holds the record for the most Super Bowl touchdown passes with 21, while Montana is in second with 11.
The first ever Super Bowl was battled out between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs on 15th January 1967.
With almost 62,000 in attendance at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Packers managed to secure a convincing 35-10 victory over the Chiefs.
Green Bay were the dominant force then and managed to also win the second Super Bowl by beating the Oakland Raiders 33-14 at the Miami Orange Bowl.
Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 was the most watched Super Bowl in NFL history in the US. During the Patriots’ 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, a record 114.44 million viewers tuned in to watch the action.
Super Bowl LII winners the Philadelphia Eagles have impressed this year and are +500 to win the title at the State Farm Stadium, while the 49ers are to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
