Everything You Need to Know About Super Bowl 2023: Date, Location, Championship Odds, Halftime Show, and Lots More

The Super Bowl is the biggest championship game in American sports and one of the biggest games worldwide. It’s the final game of the NFL season, featuring the champions of the American Football Conference and the National Football Conference. This year’s Super Bowl will be the 57th of its kind since the American Football League and National Football League merger.

Here’s all you need to know about Super Bowl 2023:

Which Teams Will Play in Super Bowl LVII?

It’s official. The Kansas City Chiefs are returning to the Super Bowl for the third time in four years against the Philadelphia Eagles. Super Bowl LVII will mark the first time two black starting quarterbacks square up in a World Championship game; Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts.

The Chiefs last won the Super Bowl in 2019 against the San Francisco 49ers, their second in franchise history (they won an American League Championship in 1962 prior to the AFL-NFL merger). They’ve made the conference finals in the past four years and hope to end this season in celebratory fashion.

On the other hand, the Eagles are headed to their fourth-ever Super Bowl and first since their win against New England in 2017, their only Super Bowl win to date. They also won three championships in the pre-1970 AFL-NFL merger.

Both teams finished with the best records in their respective conferences. Philadelphia (14-3) recorded a franchise-best 8-0 start to the regular season before falling short to the Commanders, Cowboys, and Saints in Games 9, 15, and 16, respectively. Kansas City (14-3) recorded their 10th consecutive winning season under head coach Andy Reid. Both Mahomes and Hurts have had fantastic seasons and are up for the 2023 NFL MVP Award. 

When is Super Bowl 2023?

The Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will face off on Sunday, February 12, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. ET. You can catch the live action on Fox. 

Where is the Location for Super Bowl 2023?

The State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ, will host Super Bowl LVII. It is the home of the NFL franchise Arizona Cardinals. This year’s game will be the fourth-ever Super Bowl played in the Phoenix metropolitan area, with the most recent in 2015, also played at the State Farm Stadium.

Super Bowl LVII marks the first time since 2019 that the host team will not feature in the Super Bowl. The past two Super Bowl winners, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Rams, won the Lombardi Trophy on home soil. 

Who is designated the home team in Super Bowl LVII?

Although this year’s Super Bowl will be played on neutral soil, the NFC’s Philadelphia Eagles will be the home team. 

The NFL alternates home team designations for the Super Bowl each year; NFC teams are the home team for all odd-numbered Super Bowls, while AFC teams are the home team for even-numbered Super Bowls.

Who will perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show?

The NFL announced in September 2022 that international superstar and businesswoman Rihanna will grace the Super Bowl Halftime stage. It will be the Barbados singer’s first Halftime Show performance.

Rihanna is one of the most famous artists in the world, with over 250 million records sold worldwide. Fourteen of her singles have hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100, with 31 songs cracking the top ten. She’s a nine-time Grammy Award winner and has ranked on Time’s list of 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2012 and 2018. As of 2022, Rihanna is the wealthiest female musician in the world, with a net worth of $1.4 billion, according to Forbes.

Her most recent album, “Anti”, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim. It topped the Billboard 200 charts and produced three top ten singles in the US, “Work” featuring Canadian rapper Drake, “Needed Me,” and “Love on the Brain.” Her latest song, “Lift Me Up”, was released as the lead single from the soundtrack album Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

Who is the Favorite to Win Super Bowl LVII and Super Bowl LVII MVP?

The Eagles are a 1.5-point favorite to win the Super Bowl, according to the latest FanDuel Super Bowl odds. The over/under for total points is currently set at 50.5. 

Spread: Eagles -1.5, Chiefs +1.5

Over/under: 50.5 points

Money line: Eagles -125, Chiefs +105

Patrick Mahomes (+120) and Jalen Hurts (+125) unsurprisingly lead the Super Bowl LVII MVP odds, while Travis Kelcee (+1300) and AJ Brown (+1400), and Miles Sanders (+2400) round up the top five. 

Making a case for the Eagles

The Eagles took a stroll through the NFL playoffs, winning its Divisional Round and Conference championship matchups by a total of 55 points. In both games, Philly looked poised to make the next round by halftime, blowing out the Giants 28-0 at the half and a depleted 49ers team 21-7. Both games finished with a 38-7 and 31-7 scoreline, respectively, and the Eagles became the first team in league history to score at least 30 points and allow fewer than 10 points in consecutive playoff games. 

Philadelphia rushed for 268 yards and three touchdowns against New York and 148 yards for four touchdowns versus San Francisco. Led by Kenneth Gainwell (2), Mike Sanders (2), Jalen Hurts (2), and Boston Scott (1l, it’s seven combined rushing touchdowns equaled the combined total registered by the seven other playoff teams during the division and conference championship rounds.

Hurts is having a breakout season. He rushed for 13 combined touchdowns in the regular season (fourth in the league). The 24-year-old quarterback passed for 3,705 yards and 22 touchdowns in the regular season, finishing with a 101.5 passer rating. 

The Eagles announced on their website that the team will arrive in Arizona on Sunday, February 5, to prepare for the big day.

Making a case for the Chiefs

Kansas City will undoubtedly be counting on their superstar quarterback to deliver on the biggest stage. He’s done it before and is poised to do it again.

Patrick Mahomes had to play through an ankle injury during the Chiefs’ AFC Championship 23-20 victory against Cincinnati Bengals. Nevertheless, his arms were strong enough to throw for 326 yards and two touchdowns. Mahomes led the league in touchdown passes during the regular season (41) and has successfully registered more than one touchdown throw in six of his last seven games. More impressive is the fact that he has thrown only one interception over his last six games.

Mahomes has featured in 13 playoff games, completing approximately 67% of his pass attempts and throwing for 3,902 yards and 32 touchdowns. He’s thrown just seven interceptions in that span.

Super Bowl LV proved to be one to forget for the now 27-year-old quarterback, but we all know he’s very much capable of replicating or even topping his Super Bowl performance the year before. 

Which NFL team has won the most Super Bowls in Football History?

The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots are the most successful teams in Super Bowl history, with six wins each. All six of New England’s championships have come in the 21st century, while the Steelers won their first four championships in the 1970s before claiming two more in the 2000s.

The San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys are next on the list with five wins each, while the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants are tied with four Lombardi Trophies.
