Where to watch Superbowl LIV in Abu Dhabi this Sunday
McGettigan’s

Superbowl Sunday is big news stateside as the NFL season comes to a thrilling climax.

Fans from all over the world tune in to watch the game and see the spectacular half time show.

Here in the UAE, we'll actually be watching in the early hours of Monday February 3.

This year the game will be contested by the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

Not up on your American football? Well, to cut a long explanation short, the game will be a match between a strong offence (form the Chiefs) and a strong defence (from the 49ers).

It’s something of an unstoppable force and unmovable object conundrum, so it will be interesting to see which side lifts the trophy come full time.

The big game kicks-off very early here in the UAE with a start time of 3.30am. Yes, am, as in the morning.

So it will be a safe bet a few Americans will be calling in sick on Sunday.

If sports really aren’t your thing then maybe the half time show from Shakira and Jenifer Lopez will be more to your liking?

Up for watching? Here’s where you can see all the action in Abu Dhabi.
