Super Bowl LII (52), the NFL’s championship game, will
be played in a dome in Minneapolis this February.
The big game’s teams haven’t been determined yet,
but here are the day’s logistics. It takes place Feb.
4, 2018.
The location:
U.S. Bank Stadium is in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is
a dome, so if temps are low, the more than 66,000
fans will stay warm. The location of the 2018 game
has been known since it was
announced four years ago after
a host selection process.
The weather:
The 2018 Super Bowl event
will take place in possibly the
coldest city ever selected for
the big game. It will be inside
the U.S. Bank Stadium dome,
but fans will still need to
bundle up before descending
upon Minneapolis. The
city has an average high temperature
of 23.7 degrees in
February. (Super Bowl games
on average are played in
warmer-weather states such
as Louisiana, Florida and California.)
The security:
Minneapolis has been planning security around the
big game for years. It took 41 planning groups to put
together the security plan, according to TwinCities.
com. The event is categorized by the government
as being of the highest threat level to public safety,
so extreme measures of protection will be in place.
Federal funds will be allotted for security. There will
be thousands of uniformed and undercover police
and the security plan is enacted for a full 10 days
around the event, beginning Jan. 26, according
to TwinCities.com.
The music:
Grammy-award winning singer Justin Timberlake is
set to headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime
Show. Last year’s halftime show, featuring Lady
Gaga, was the most-watched halftime performance
in history because the game was streamed on so
many platforms in addition to airing on television. In
the past five years, fans have seen Gaga, Coldplay,
Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Mark
Ronson, Katy Perry, Missy
Elliot, Lenny Kravitz, Red
Hot Chili Peppers and more
on the halftime stage.
The media
For Super Bowl LII, the giant
Mall of America will
host media day events and
press conferences. The
annual Super Bowl Experience,
a traveling event
open to the public, will be
at the Minneapolis Convention
Center from Jan.
27-Feb. 3, 2018. It includes
experiencing the NFL in
virtual reality, autographs
from NFL players, photos
with the Vince Lombardi
Trophy, NFL flag clinics and
more. Super Bowl Experience tickets are $35 for
adults, $25 for children 12 and younger, and $55 for
a fast pass.
The future:
In 2019, the Super Bowl is set to be played in the Mercedes-
Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2020 the
game will be in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida
