The Super Bowl is a growing spectacle in the UK as interest in the NFL gains traction on the east side of the Atlantic, and it's coming to a TV screen near you this Sunday.


The greatest show on turf will be played out between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams, a fresh set of contenders to kick-start the post-Tom Brady era.

Quarterback Joe Burrows has picked up plenty of hype over the playoff season due to his highly-confident style, while veteran Rams QB Matt Stafford is gunning for the first Super Bowl ring of his career in the first season after ending his 12-year spell with the Detroit Lions.

Both teams will go hammer-and-tongs for victory in Los Angeles – the Super Bowl stadium is 'home' to the Rams during the regular season – and a growing worldwide audience will be there to see it all live.

BBC, Sky Sports and NFL Gamepass all boast a range of options for you to soak up and enjoy. Check out everything you need to know below.

How to watch the Super Bowl in the US

In the US, Super Bowl broadcasting duties are on a three-year cycle between NBC, CBS and Fox.

This was supposed to be a CBS year to broadcast the event, but a network trade has taken place meaning they took last year's Super Bowl to avoid clashing with the 2022 Winter Olympics coverage. They switched places with NBC, who are on duty this time.

The commentator and analyst roles are yet to be fully confirmed for 2022, but legendary broadcaster Al Michaels has been a regular feature on the rotation since 1988 – from ABC to NBC – and is likely to feature again despite speculation he may move to Amazon Prime Video as they ramp up their coverage in 2022. He is typically paired with Cris Collinsworth.

In 2021, Jim Nantz and Tony Romo brought all the coverage of Super Bowl LV as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers demolished the Kansas City Chiefs.
