For those fans who aren’t in Indianapolis already, instead will be watching from a local pub, or at a friend’s house, the New York Giants will battle it out with the New England Patriots Sunday February 5.
Kickoff is scheduled for 6:29 p.m. Eastern Time.
The game will take place in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium and will be broadcast on NBC. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will have the call live in Indiana, reports Fox.
The NFL is catering to the world audience this year too. According to Huffington Post, the game will be available online for the first time ever. The game is available free online at nfl.com/superbowl/46 and even available on NFL Mobile. The Huffington Post reports:
This comes in the wake of “Operation Fake Sweep,” a piracy raid by federal authorities against websites suspected of illegally streaming sporting events. 300 websites were seized in the days leading up to the big game.
This year, Madonna will be providing the entertainment. The Super Bowl Halftime Show headliner just released the video as news broke that she would be performing Sunday.
She released a video for her new single “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” earlier this week.
The video is football-themed and features Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. alongside football players carrying and cheering her on singing “L-O-V-E Madonna.”
According to the Associated Press, the single is from her 12th studio album “M.D.N.A,” set for release March 26 and will be featured in Sunday’s halftime performance.
