The essential details of Super Bowl LVI

The NFL will cozy into the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, home to both the Rams and Chargers, on Sunday, February 13. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. EST and NBC will be broadcasting the event, according to Sporting News. Seating at the venue typically accommodates just over 70,000 people, but for special events like the Super Bowl or 2023's scheduled College Football Playoff Championship and WrestleMania 39, seating can be expanded to 100,240 eager fans!

Streaming options for Super Bowl 56 will also be available. Peacock, Hulu Plus, SlingTV, and fuboTV are supported streaming services for the event, per Entertainment Tonight. As for who will be headed to the big game, playoffs begin Saturday, January 15 and will end on January 30 with the NFC and AFC Championship games. Legendary wide receiver Jerry Rice spoke with Today and shared his excitement for the playoffs and offered his own 2022 Super Bowl predictions. He, like many speculators, has his eye on both the Packers' Aaron Rodgers and the Buccaneers' Tom Brady.

For those excited about the Super Bowl halftime show, a collective of stars have been booked for a huge performance. The five-headliner act will feature Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. Blige is making her second Super Bowl appearance after performing in the 2001 halftime show. The artist singing the national anthem has yet to be announced, but if the star-studded halftime is any indicator, the moment should be one worth watching.
