The Ultimate Guide To Viewing 2023 Super Bowl LVII
This should be one great Super Bowl. After dominating the regular season and advancing through the playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will meet February 12 in Super Bowl LVII. At stake: annual bragging rights as National Football League champs.
Get ready for great TV moments. Between the on-field play, a spectacular halftime show and yet-to-be-released commercials that almost always carry plenty of buzz, this is action you won’t want to miss. And take note: The places to watch and livestream the big game have changed since last year.
Fun facts for Super Bowl LVII
Super Bowl LVII will feature two of the League’s most explosive offenses, led by two of its most prolific quarterbacks: the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes and the Eagles’ Jalen Hurts. Barring injuries, the matchup will mark the first time in Super Bowl history that two Black starting quarterbacks square off against each other.
The contest will also mark another historic first: two brothers competing against each other in a Super Bowl. Superstar tight end Travis Kelce of the Chiefs will try to get the best of his older brother, Eagles’ All-Pro center Jason Kelce.
Las Vegas oddsmakers listed the Eagles as the early favorite after the matchup was finalized. They give the Chiefs anywhere from 1½ to 2½ points, but this is subject to change up until kickoff. Most Vegas bookies and sports betting apps set early lines for total points, or “Over/Under,” at 49½ points. If you’re betting online, see our tips to keep your bet secure.
After pulling off the infamous “Philly Special” on the way to an upset win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, the Eagles are seeking their second NFL championship in five years.
This will be the Chiefs’ third Super Bowl appearance in four seasons. They defeated the San Francisco 49ers in 2020, with Mahomes taking home the Most Valuable Player award, but were defeated by the ageless Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a year later.
This year’s game is expected to draw a massive audience that could exceed 100 million viewers, and 30-second commercial spots are going for a record $7 million each. The Super Bowl has typically been the most-watched TV broadcast in the U.S. in a given year since its inception in 1967 and also draws massive audiences overseas.
Where is Super Bowl LVII being played?
The game will be played indoors at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, home of the Cardinals. This venue previously hosted the Super Bowl in 2008 and 2015. It will be the 21st indoor Super Bowl.
Super Bowl LVII—or Super Bowl 57, as non-traditionalists prefer—kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET.
What network is airing Super Bowl LVII, and who is the broadcast team?
Fox will be broadcasting. Kevin Burkhardt is doing play-by-play; Glen Olsen will offer color commentary; Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi will serve as sideline reporters; and Mike Pereira will offer rules analysis. Fox Deportes will broadcast the contest in Spanish.
Besides Fox, both ESPN and the NFL Network will also provide pre- and postgame analysis throughout the day.

Will there be live entertainment at Super Bowl LVII?
Yes, and it will be star-studded.
Nine-time Grammy winner Rihanna will grace the world’s greatest stage, headlining the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show. It will be Rihanna’s first time on stage since she performed at the 2018 Grammy Awards.
Super Bowl halftime shows are known for their surprise guests, and there’s been wide speculation mounting that other top performers, including Taylor Swift, will show up.
Swift has long been one of music’s top stars, but could never do the halftime show because it was previously sponsored by Pepsi and she is sponsored by competitor Coca-Cola. With Apple Music taking over the show this year, Swift can perform in the clear.
