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.

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.
