When Is Super Bowl 2014: Kickoff Time and Halftime Details
On the off chance the open-air stadium isn't fit for game play on Sunday due to bad weather, contingency plans could push the game back to Monday or even Tuesday. (This is not likely, as the forecast calls for no snow in North Jersey this week. Game-day temps will hover around freezing, but local fans as well as those who trekked in from Seattle and Denver should be fairly used to the cold. Bundle up if you're lucky enough to be attending!) Security is expected to be very tight; click here details on event security and a list of prohibited items.
So, when is Super Bowl 2014 kickoff as adjusted for Arizona's time zone? Tucson fans can catch the first play of the Broncos vs. Seahawks match-up on Fox 11 at 4:30. Check your specific local listings for time and channel to confirm.
With entertainer Bruno Mars slated to perform this year's halftime show, stars like David Beckham and Scarlett Johansson starring in this year's Super Bowl XLVIII commercials and other celebrities filling the VIP boxes, there are plenty of reasons to tune in even if you're not a huge football fan the other 364 days of the year! (We'll certainly be watching, if only to see what the ladies will wear to brave the cold, February air in our home-state of NJ yet still look stylish in case the camera lands on them. And of course, to swoon over Bruno!)
