When is Super Bowl 51?

Super Bowl LI will be played on Sunday February 5, 2017.

Where will it be played?

This year's championship-deciding game will be played at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

It was last played in Texas at the end of the 2010 season when the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington (home of the Dallas Cowboys and since renamed the AT&T Stadium).

What happened in Super Bowl 50?

The Denver Broncos dominated last year's big game with an otherworldly defensive display against the Carolina Panthers, spearheaded by outside linebacker and Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller.

However, both sides struggled to maintain last year's form that led them to the championship game. The Broncos had their five-year play-off run ended by the Kansas City Chiefs in week 16, while the Panthers struggled to find rhythm for much of the season, finishing the year bottom of the NFC South.

Who are the favourites to win Super Bowl 51?

The New England Patriots and the Dallas Cowboys led their respective divisions throughout the regular season. The Patriots ended the year with a 14-2 record, while the Cowboys equalled a franchise-best 13-3 year.

Sky Bet has them at 13/8 and 4/1 respectively to win Super Bowl 51.

Keep up to date with the odds for the outright winner of the Super Bowl here.

The Kansas City Chiefs look like good value in the AFC West at 12-4. Andy Reid's side won every divisional game this season, clinching the AFC's second seed and a valuable bye week.

The Chiefs haven't made the Super Bowl since their 1969 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

In the NFC West, the Seattle Seahawks, who have made two out of the last three Super Bowls, ended the regular season 10-5-1, and Sky Bet has them placed at 6/1 to win outright.

The Seahawks made the Super Bowl in 2015, and it all came down to the final moments...

They beat the reigning champions, Denver, in Super Bowl XLVIII to claim their first ever Vince Lombardi trophy and are looking resurgent this year ahead of Super Bowl 51.

Who will play the halftime show?

Lady Gaga will headline the halftime show at Super Bowl 51 a year after her spine-tingling rendition of Star Spangled Banner at Super Bowl 50.
