Super Bowl LIII – 2019 Posted On 16 January 2019

Super Bowl LIII, the 53rd Super Bowl and the 49th modern-era National Football League championship game, will decide the league champion for the 2018 NFL season. The game is scheduled to be played on February 3, 2019, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia

32 teams compete in the NFL Play-Offs across two divisions: The National Football League (NFL) and the National Football Conference (NFC). After the regular football season, the NFL schedule moves into the playoffs, which ultimately lead up to the Super Bowl. In regular-season games, teams compete for the best win-loss records, and those teams with the best records advance to the playoffs. The playoffs, meanwhile, decide who goes on to the Super Bowl.

The NFL schedules all those regular-season games — 256 in a typical season — to separate the good teams from the bad. On every level of sports, people want to declare a champion. In the NFL, a total of 12 teams qualify for what amounts to the road to the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is the NFL championship game. It pits the winner of the AFC against the champion of the NFC. The game was born out of the merger agreement between the former AFL and the NFL in 1966.Six teams from each conference qualify for the playoffs, with the four division winners qualifying automatically. These winners are joined by two teams called wildcard teams, who qualify based on the win-loss records of the remaining teams in each conference that didn’t finish first in their respective divisions.

The Super Bowls finalists have yet to be decided, however, the early favourites for 2019’s prestigious prize are: Los Angeles Rams after their great start to the season, and last-year’s runner up, New England Patriots, as well as Kansas City Chiefs. The Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most Super Bowls with six championship wins, while the New England Patriots, the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers all have five wins respectively. New England has the most Super Bowl appearances with four from 1990 to 1993.

The Super Bowl has become a massive event in America and over 111 million Americans tuned into 2017’s match between Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. The American sport has generated a lot of support across the pond to the UK, with over one million Brits staying up into the early hours to watch the Super Bowl. Many people up and down the country go to Super Bowl parties, which are effectively American-themed parties which show the Super Bowl on a big screen.

The Super Bowl has recently become just as iconic as the game itself, with many legendary artists performing on the pitch at half-time. Last year, the well sought-after slot was filled by American singer Justin Timberlake, while legendary guitarist Slash famously joined Black Eyed Peas on stage in 2011 to perform “Sweet Child O’ Mine” with Fergie.
