Super Bowl 2013 Facts and Times:
(last updated: 02/03/2013)

What is the Super Bowl?
A lot of people will watch the Super Bowl just for the ads, but it sure does not hurt to know what the Super Bowl actually is. The Super Bowl XLVII (47) is a professional football championship game by the National Football League (NFL). The teams include the winners of the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League. The winner of the Super Bowl receives the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Who plays the Super Bowl?
The San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens will play the Super Bowl 2013 in New Orleans in the Superbowl 47.

Fun Fact: The couches of the Super Bowl teams are brothers. John (Ravens) and Jim (49ers) Harbaugh are marking the first brother versus brother coaching Superbowl game.

Super Bowl 2013 Date and Location
The Super Bowl 2013, Super Bowl XLVII (47) takes place on Sunday, February 3, 2013 in the New Orleans.  The Mercedes-Benz Superdome will be the venue for the Big Game. More about the Super Bowl 2013 Stadium can be found below.

When is the Super Bowl 2012 Kickoff Time?
The Super Bowl XLVII will kick off at 6:30pm EST.

Super Bowl 2013 Stadium
The Mercedes-Benz Superdome history started in the 70s. The Superdome re-opened after complete renovation in 2006 after it got famous as shelter after Hurricane Katrina. The stadium has invested $85 million in new upgrades since 2010. The post-Katrina improvements have sustained the Dome’s legendary history while offering the fans all of the advantages of new design and the latest technology. These spectacular upgrades have transformed the iconic facility into one of the finest in all of sports. 

When Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans on Aug. 29, 2005, an estimated 25,000 to 30,000 people sought protection inside the Superdome. The stadium served as refuge of last resort for those who had no means of leaving during a mandatory evacuation of the city.

On Super Bowl Sunday over 76,000 fans will find a seat in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Super Bowl 2013 TV Broadcast
CBS is broadcasting the 2013 Super Bowl in the United States. The Super Bowl 2013 pre-game coverage starts hours ahead of the Super Bowl XLVII kickoff. In past years pre-game coverage started at 2pm Eastern. 
The Super Bowl 2013 game coverage starts at 6:00pm Eastern and the Super Bowl 47 kick-off is set for 6:30pm.

Main National TV stations around the world will broadcast the big game as well, but you will not get to see the Super Bowl ads outside of the United States. For the fun and cool Super Bowl 2013 ads you have to tune in to the web and hit our site or Youtube. More about where to watch Super Bowl ads during the big game can be found below under Super Bowl XLVII Ads.

Note that the Super Bowl XLVII will be streamed online this year again. The Super Bowl stream will though be blocked for viewers outside of the United States. 

How to watch the Super Bowl 2013 Online
For the second time ever the Super Bowl will be streamed online. Fans will be able to access the live stream from NFL.com and CBSSports.com inside the United States. If you are outside of the United States you can purchase a NFL Game Pass.

Super Bowl 2013 Ads
Besides the football the Super Bowl Ads are the main attractions. CBS has sold out all Super Bowl 2013 spots with some 30 seconds slots catching as much as $4 million. There will be more of the "epic" Super Bowl ads this year. The list of Super Bowl 2013 advertisers is almost complete.

Our traditional Super Bowl Ads for Geeks Guide will again feature full coverage of the Super Bowl Ads ahead and during the Super Bowl XLVII (superbowl 2013). You will also be able to watch Super Bowl 2013 Ads here as soon as they are revealed. Many Super Bowl 2013 ads will be released well before the Super Bowl game day. See all confirmed Super Bowl 2013 Advertisers and the latest Super Bowl 2013 Ads announcements.

Super Bowl 2013 Halftime Show
Beyonce is performing the Super Bowl 2013 halftime show. The Super Bowl Halftime show is the most watched music event of year. Beyonce's performance will include the reunion of Destiny's Child.

The Super Bowl halftime show is the most-watched music event of the year. Over 114 million watched the Super Bowl halftime show in 2012 in the United States alone. This year Pepsi is sponsoring the Super Bowl halftime show. Pepsi also struck a mega deal with Beyonce to promote their soft drinks.

Who sings the Super Bowl 2013 National Anthem?
The NFL and CBS announced on January 18 that Alicia Keys will perform the Super Bowl 2013 National Anthem.

Who Sings America The Beautiful at the Super Bowl 2013?
The Sandy Hook Elementary School choir from Newtown will perform America the Beautiful during the Super Bowl 47, making it likely the most emotional moment in Super Bowl history.

Super Bowl 2013 TV Specials
After the big game CBS will air an episode of Elementary right after the Super Bowl 2013. Elementary is a modern Sherlock Holmes adoption starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. By the way, I love this show. 

After Elementary the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson will welcome Steve Carell, Drew Brees, Neil Patrick Harris and Nikki Reed in a New Orleans Super Bowl special.

Have fun watching the Super Bowl XLVII and join us on Super Bowl Ads Guide for Geeks to watch the Super Bowl 2013 ads.
