The Patriots and Falcons take the field in America’s biggest sporting event, the NFL Super Bowl 51, on Monday February 6 with the game live on Seven from 10am.
This year’s game is set to take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas with half-time entertainment from Lady Gaga.
The Falcons were first to secure their spot in the 2017 Super Bowl after defeating the Packers 44-21. The Falcons will be fighting for a win this year after losing their first and only other Super Bowl appearance to the Broncos in 1999. However, the competition will be tough, as the Patriots have a Super Bowl history of 4-4 and will not lose the strike rate without a fight.
Lady Gaga, winner of six Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe and Academy Award nominee, will headline this year’s Halftime Show. The Super Bowl Halftime Show is the most watched musical event of the year with more than 116.5 million viewers in the US alone last year.
Seven will broadcast live direct from Texas with US Fox Sports’ commentators Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on the call and Erin Andrews and Chris Myers reporting from the sidelines.
The Super Bowl will also be broadcast in Australia on ESPN with previews across the Super Bowl weekend.
On Monday morning Australian time pre-game coverage starts with NFL Insiders at 2am, NFL Countdown at 3am and then an encore screening of Road To The Super Bowl from NFL Films.
Live preview shows continue from 7am before game coverage commences at 10am.
Post-game coverage is scheduled from 2pm Monday.
