When is Super Bowl LVIII?

Typically the Super Bowl takes place on the first Sunday in February, however, due to an additional game in the regular NFL season, this year it will take place on February 11.

Taking place in Las Vegas, the game will start earlier than usual so that it can still fall into the prime time viewing slot on the East Coast. That means that it will start at 3:30 pm PST, 6:30 pm EST, and 11:30 pm GMT.

The Super Bowl halftime show is one of the biggest gigs in the country, as the biggest stars perform on a huge stage with millions watching.
