Major league football is entering the finest of times for fans.
The appointment is fixed. On the night of Sunday February 13 to February 14, from 12:30 a.m., the most watched sporting event on American television will take place. The traditional SuperBowl will take place, including a collegiate half-time show this year, around several major rappers (Dr Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar) and Mary J. Blige.
This time of year is the most awaited by French followers. And the device continues to expand. The main broadcaster, beIN SPORTS, will offer the entire Playoffs phase which opens this weekend. In addition, it is the L’Équipe group which has held the free-to-air rights to the Superbowl since last year, after the TF1, M6 and France Télévisions groups. Also, the TNT channel will offer a match during the Wild Card round, another during the conference round and finally the two conference finals.
Since last season, the Wild Cards round contains 6 games, against 4 previously, while only two teams are qualified in advance for the semi-finals of the conference, against 4 in the past. These are 14 teams that can claim to lift one of the most prized trophies in American sport.
Here is the full TV schedule for the 2022 play-offs:
