It is expected that the major sporting event of the year in the United States, will be watched by over 100 million viewers
On Sunday evening in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will be the largest sporting event in the USA, the Superbowl, the match between Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots for the title of champion of the National football League.
It is expected that the air temperature during the 52nd super bowl Sunday will be 17 degrees below zero, but inside the indoor stadium where the match will take place, will be at least 20 degrees Celsius.
The New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady could set records. He would be the oldest non-kicker involved in Superbowl, and may be the oldest quarterback is a winner and earn the sixth ring of the champion – and it will also be a record.
The team from Philadelphia is trying to secure their first victory in Superbowl, but the favorites of the match are “Patriots”.
It is expected that the game will be watched by over 100 million viewers. Stream of the Superbowl is the most watched television program of the year in the U.S., and advertisers are willing to pay $ 5 million for a 30-second commercial.
However, the ratings of the viewers will have a great value for the NFL. The ratings of the regular League games this year decreased by 10 percent compared to the previous season.
The fall in rankings is partially explained by the boycott NFL games because of the protests, which satisfied the players, in particular – getting on one knee during the national anthem. Among other reasons cited are the reduction in the number of subscribers of cable television because of the growing popularity of streaming services on the Internet, and also – to some extent – a decline in interest.
The two teams have met in Superbowl in 2005. Then the match ended with the score 27:24 in favor of the New England Patriots.
