It all comes down to this: After a season of unpredictable swings and shifts (and a few questionable calls) the 2021/2022 NFL campaign reaches its finale tonight with the Los Angeles Rams taking on the Cincinnati Bengals at Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles.
When Is the Super Bowl 2022 Date?
Super Bowl LVI (also known as Super Bowl 56) takes place today, Sunday, February 13, 2022. The NFL championship game has been played on the a Sunday in February since 2004, making “Super Bowl Sunday” a must-watch event.
What Time Is Super Bowl 2022?
Super Bowl LVI begins at 6:30 p.m. EST / 3:30 p.m. PST with the official kickoff. Super Bowl pre-game coverage starts at 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST.
Where Is the Super Bowl Taking Place?
Super Bowl 2022 takes place inside SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California (just outside of Los Angeles), making the LA Rams the second team to play for the Super Bowl at home (the Tom Brady-led Buccaneers played for the Super Bowl trophy at home last year at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa).
Of course, the NFL determines the location of each year’s Super Bowl game prior to the season starting; the fact that the Rams made it to the final is just that much sweeter for their hometown fans.
