The annual Super Bowl, the championship game for the American National Football League (NFL) is almost upon us. This year, Super Bowl LVI will take place at SoFi Stadium, located in California, and the renowned halftime show will feature iconic hip-hop artists Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
If you’re wanting to watch the United States’ biggest sporting event of the year, you’re not alone. Therefore, we’ve rounded up which Sydney sports bars and pubs are hosting special events for this year’s Super Bowl, where you’ll be able to enjoy the game with your mates over classic American food and delicious beer.
