Football fans don’t need an introduction to the NFL and the awaited Super Bowl season. But, if you are new to the sports world, we have got you covered!
The Super Bowl is the much anticipated annual championship season of the National Football League or NFL. It has been the tradition since 1966, serving as the final game of the extended National Football League season after it replaced the NFL Championship Game.
Since 2004, it has become a ritual to play the game on the first Sunday in February. American NFL teams that emerge victoriously are awarded the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy, named after the football coach and NFL executive who won the first two Super Bowl games.
In the United States, the Super Bowl is as big as the Fourth of July celebrations. Fans scramble over tickets, some of the most famous musicians perform at halftime, and the stadium is packed with people.
If you’re excited about Super Bowl 2022, here’s what you can expect!
NFL hit by COVID-19 Outbreak
The new Covid-19 variant Omicron has created trouble for NFL fans and organizers who were forced to cancel or postpone the season, though the final decision is still pending. The fear of the Omicron variant has been looming heavily in the States, but thankfully, the booster shots have become accessible just in time.
Of course, the NFL executive board realized that organizing a match during such circumstances will be tricky, and the League has decided to take every precaution necessary to keep the players and coaches safe. However, the League decided to take a call and postpone the season by rescheduling almost 15 matches.
Super Bowl 2022 Details: When and where it will be played
The 2021 NFL Football Season kickstarted on September 9 (Thursday) with a match between American teams, the Dallas Cowboys, and the undefeated Super Bowl Champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game took place in Florida at the Raymond James Stadium.
After a six-year break, the Super Bowl is set to return to the Golden State of California in early February 2022. The match is scheduled to take place on February 13.
The Super Bowl LVI Championship will be held in California’s giant SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. The SoFi stadium, which is home to the Los Angeles Chargers and Rams, opened in September 2020.
After the NFL executive board confirmed the new dates for Super Bowl 2022, it was realized that the event would display the new 5 million dollars SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Los Angeles. This will also provide a much-needed boost to the local economy, which was gravely affected by the COVID-19 situation in March 2020.
The NFL has adopted the latest 17-game match schedule this season. The Super Bowl LVI has been ideally pushed back by one week. The Championship game has coincided with the middle of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. But, that won’t be much of a problem.
In fact, the Super Bowl 2022 will be one of the first major events in the Golden State in a post-COVID world. Therefore, this match won’t just symbolize a huge comeback, but it will help put local people back to work, especially those whose businesses were struck by COVID.
