Today is one of the biggest annual events in the US sporting calendar – the Super Bowl.

This event represents the culmination of the American football season, where the winners of the NFL championship are decided. Out of 32 teams in the championship, the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will be competing in the Super Bowl.

This is the 53rd Super Bowl – known as Super Bowl LIII because of the tradition of using Roman numerals in the title.

The Super Bowl is a major cultural event in the USA with friends and family gathering to watch the game together. As well as being a prestigious sporting event, it’s famous for extravagant half-time entertainment by stars such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake.

If you want to watch the Super Bowl (like about 100 million people world wide), you will have to stay up very late – the game starts at 11.30 pm here in the UK.
