NFL fans, listen up! Wondering where to watch Super Bowl LI in Singapore? Here’s where to catch the big game!
Super Bowl Sunday is basically a holiday on the American calendar, but what happens when you live halfway around the world and the game is actually played on a Monday morning? Not to worry: just trade in the beers and guacamole for some strong coffee and pancakes (though I’ve seen my fair share of beers and Bloody Marys at these things, too).
As a diehard New England Patriots fan, I can’t pretend to be unbiased about this matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, but I am happy to get the word out to all my fellow football fans about where and when you can catch the big game. Even if you’re only vaguely curious about football, it looks to be a great matchup of two of the highest-powered offenses in the NFL (and the highest over/under line – 59 – in Super Bowl history!). Of course my Pats also have the defense with the fewest points allowed — guess who’s won 4 of the 5 Super Bowls where the #1 offense and #1 defense clashed?
Where and When: Super Bowl LI is happening at 5:30pm Central Standard Time Sunday, 5 February in Houston Texas, which means 7:30am on Monday, 6 February for us here in Singers.
Watch at home: If you’ve got cable, the game will be broadcast on the Sports Illustrated Channel (formerly ASN). That’s Channel 129 on Singtel, and Channel 215 on StarHub.
If you or your husband happen to be traveling at this time, this handy article includes a rundown of every channel in the world that will be broadcasting the Super Bowl, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe!
Viewing parties: Unless you’re superstitious (like I am!), football games – and especially the Super Bowl – are way more fun to watch with a crowd. Even if your team’s not in the game, why not rep them by heading down in your favourite jersey or t-shirt? With many spots in Singapore hosting breakfast viewing parties, be sure to book early, mama! Check out our full list below…
