Super Bowl 2012 Facts and Times:
(last updated: 02/05/2012)

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 XLVI (46) 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 New York Giants will play against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl 2012. The Patriots have lost last time against the Giants in a Super Bowl. This year it is payback time. All eyes will be on the quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tom Brady.

Super Bowl 2012 Date and Location
The Super Bowl 2012, Super Bowl XLVI (46) takes place on Sunday, February 5, 2012 in the Indianapolis.  The Lucas Oil Stadium will be the venue for the Big Game. More about the Super Bowl 2012 Stadium can be found below.

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

Super Bowl 2012 Stadium
The Lucas Oil Stadium opened in 2008. It is a seven-level multipurpose facility with retractable roof. In addition to being the home of the Indianapolis Colts, Lucas Oil Stadium is used year-round for conventions and events. The stadium, which normally seats 63,000, will seat an increased capacity of about 70,000 for the 2012 Super Bowl. See also the Lucas Oil Stadium site.

Super Bowl 2012 TV Broadcast
NBC is broadcasting the 2012 Super Bowl in the United States. The Super Bowl 2012 pre-game coverage starts hours ahead of the Super Bowl XLVI kickoff. Last year Fox started at 2pm Eastern. NBC will also start the 2012 Super Bowl pre-game coverage at 2pm ET.
The Super Bowl XLVI game coverage stats at 6:30pm Eastern.

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.

Super Bowl 2012 Ads
Besides the football the Super Bowl Ads are the main attractions. NBC has sold out all Super Bowl 2012 spots at the end of November with some 30 seconds slots catching close to $4 million. There will be more of the "epic" Super Bowl ads this year. The reason for that is the tremendous success Chrysler had with their Eminem ad and also the wildly popular Volkswagen The Force Spot wast 60 seconds long. The list of Super Bowl 2012 advertisers is complete.

At the post of this Super Bowl FAQ we count 35 excluding Hollywood movie studios. The Super Bowl 2012 will see again a lot of car ads, not as many as last year as several car makers that advertised in 2011 are not coming back. Anheuser-Busch InBev runs the most Super Bowl ads again this year. The most online buzz ahead of the Super Bowl generated Honda with the Ferris Bueller Honda ad and the Acura Ad staring Jerry Seinfeld. Watch all released Super Bowl Ads.

Super Bowl 2012 Halftime Show
Madonna is performing the Super Bowl 2012 halftime show. The Super Bowl Halftime show is the most watched music event of year. Madonna's performance will be supported by Cirque du Soleil, Jamie King and multimedia artists from Moment Factory. Madonna will perform several top hits and her new single Give me all your Luvin'.

The Super Bowl halftime show is the most-watched music event of the year. Over 162 million watched the Super Bowl halftime show in 2011. This year marks the fifth time Bridgestone Americas has sponsored the Super Bowl halftime show. The tire company's new brand campaign, fittingly titled "Time to Perform," will debut during the game.
If you are not a fan of Madonna there is an alternative Super Bowl half-time show. The Lingerie Bowl IX will again be aired on Super Bowl Sunday. Details of that sexy Super Bowl half-time show are still developing.

Who sings the Super Bowl 2012 National Anthem?
There is no official announcement yet who will sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl 2012, but AP just issued a report saying that Kelly Clarkson will have the honors to perform the National Anthem at the Super Bowl XLVI. Last year Christina Aguilera sang the National Anthem. There are some social campaigns of fans frrom Sandi Patty and Adam Lambert underway to get them selected to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl 2012.
