NFL fans, listen up! Wondering where to watch the 2021 Super Bowl in Singapore? Here’s where to catch the big game!
Super Bowl Sunday may be a de facto American holiday, but what happens when you live halfway around the world and the football game is actually played bright and early Monday morning? Just swap out beers and guacamole for some strong coffee and pancakes, of course and watch the Super Bowl in Singapore! Thanks to modern technology we can even still watch all the great commercials!
Of course, due to the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic and Phase 3 restrictions about showing live televised restaurants in bars and restaurants, fans will sadly be unable to gather in large groups to cheer on their teams this year. Here’s hoping that by 2022 all of our favourite F&B establishments are back to hosting their annual Super Bowl breakfast bonanzas!
But never fear, you can definitely still watch the big game from the comfort of your own home. And with a perfect-for-TV game pitting the G.O.A.T. (that’s ‘greatest of all time’ for the uninitiated) Tom Brady against current and future superstar Patrick Mahomes, you won’t want to miss it. Read on for all the deets on how to watch Super Bowl LV in Singapore!
When is the 2021 Super Bowl?
Super Bowl LV kicks off at 6:30pm Eastern Standard Time Sunday, 7 February 2021 in Tampa, Florida which means 7:30am on Monday, 8 February for us here in Singapore.
Who is playing in the 2021 Super Bowl?
This year’s game features the winningest QB in NFL history, Tom Brady (better known to most in Singapore as supermodel Gisele Bündchen’s husband), who left the New England Patriots in search of warmer climes (he is 43, after all) and is now leading the historically mediocre Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is the first time in Super Bowl history that one of the teams will be competing in its home stadium, which should definitely give the Bucs a much-needed boost. Brady is playing in his record tenth Super Bowl (he’s already won sixth of them) and is backed by an explosive offense that ranked #2 in the NFL for total passing yards and passing yards per game.
Of course, the team that ranked #1 happens to be their opponent from the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champions, and are led by their electrifying young quarterback Patrick Mahomes and an incomparable cast of offensive superstars. Expect a high-scoring game and definitely take the over on this one, as both defenses are fairly average!
Where can I watch the Super Bowl in Singapore?
The game will not be shown on TV in Singapore (boooo!), but you can watch it at home. Your best option is to get a VPN, which allows you to stream content from anywhere in the world. Just connect to a U.S. server location (such as New York or Seattle), use the free service Locast, and you can watch the Super Bowl live on CBS (including all the commercials, which you’ll miss if you watch with NFL Game Pass or any international telecast)!
There are lots of VPNs out there, but we recommend ExpressVPN, which gets top marks from various tech sites for its speed, security features, and excellent customer service. It’s super easy to set up and works with TVs, computers, phones and tablets, and even streaming boxes. And as a bonus you’ll be able to watch U.S. Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, and other overseas streaming services!
Who is in the 2021 Super Bowl Halftime Show?
Even for those not too fussed about football, the Super Bowl always offers a star-studded halftime show that everyone will be talking about. This year Canadian singer The Weeknd (surely you know “Blinding Lights”?) will be the headliner, though you can always count on some fun surprise guests. The poet Amanda Gorman, who became a global sensation after reading a poem at the Presidential inauguration last month, will also read a new original composition before the game kicks off.
Where can I see the best Super Bowl commercials?
If you watch the game live you’ll be able to follow along in real time as everyone reacts on social media. Or you can always see the highlights on YouTube after the game.
Happy watching, and may the best team win!
