Super Bowl LI will be held at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, home of the Texans. Owners voted in May 2013 to hold this year’s Super Bowl in Houston, with the nation’s fourth-largest city beating out co-finalist South Florida for hosting rights.
It’ll be the second Super Bowl held at NRG Stadium, which was named Reliant Stadium when it hosted Super Bowl XXXVIII between the Patriots and Panthers in 2004, a game New England won 32-29. The city of Houston has hosted the championship game on one other event, with the Dolphins topping the Vikings 24-7 at Rice Stadium in 1974 in Super Bowl VIII.
Super Bowl LI will start at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday 5th Feb.
FOX and FOX Sports Go will broadcast this year’s Super Bowl, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on the call and Erin Andrews reporting from the sidelines.
The Falcons became the first participant into Super Bowl LI by defeating the Packers, 44-21, in the NFC Championship Game. It’s the second Super Bowl berth in Falcons history, with the team losing Super Bowl XXXIII to the Broncos, 34-19.
Later on Sunday, the Patriots dispatched the Steelers, 36-17, in the AFC Championship Game to make their record ninth Super Bowl appearance. The Patriots are 4-4 all-time in Super Bowls, with their latest championship coming two years ago in Super Bowl XLIX, when they edged the Seahawks 28-24.
