The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events of the year – and if you’re joining us from the US, the absolute biggest. This year’s showdown sees the reigning champion New England Patriots of the AFC take on the NFC’s Philadelphia Eagles in what promises to be a scintillating affair, so without further ado, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty so you don’t miss a second of the action. Everything you need to know about Super Bowl Sunday is here in one handy place.
Super Bowl 52 UK Kickoff Time, Date and TV Channel: What time does the 2018 Super Bowl start?
Taking place in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Super Bowl 2018 gets underway at 5:30pm local time (US central time), which means that Super Bowl 52’s UK kickoff time is 11:30pm GMT.
The date of Super Bowl 52 (Super Bowl LII) is Sunday February 4, 2018, though due to the time difference, it will run well into Monday February 5 here in Blighty, so we’d recommend bagging a day off work or perfecting your sickie voice if you’re in it for the long haul.
In the UK, Super Bowl 52 is being shown on two TV channels: BBC One will be picking up on terrestrial, and Sky Sports will be showing it on no less than three of its new-look channels.
The Beeb’s coverage starts just before kickoff time at 11.15pm, while Sky Sports is going all-in and will be getting things started at 10pm GMT, making for more than an hour’s worth of pre-game buildup.
Justin Timberlake is schedule to headline the Super Bowl 2018 halftime show – here’s hoping we manage to avoid another ‘wardrobe malfunction’, which caused all kinds of controversy back at the 2004 Super Bowl.
