2011 Super Bowl: Packers-Steelers Kickoff Time, Pregame Show, Broadcast Information And More

Finally, it’s just about time for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event of the year. Super Bowl XLV pits the Green Bay Packers, winners of the NFC, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, AFC champions in a battle for all the marbles. With a full schedule of events, there’s plenty to keep viewers entertained all the way up to, and throughout, Sunday’s big game. Pregame shows, the game itself and postgame shows dominate the TV schedule on Sunday, with every major media outlet focused on Super Bowl 45.

Here’s the full schedule of events.

Pregame show: The real pregame show gets started at 11 a.m. local time on FOX with a wide range of guests, musical performances and more — with President Barack Obama even stopping by. All the pregame information can be found here.

Super Bowl coverage: FOX transitions into its Super Bowl 45 coverage at 3 p.m., broadcasting live from Cowboys Stadium, site of the big game. Of course, the beginning of the coverage doesn’t mean the game itself kicks off at 3 p.m., leaving you plenty of time for last minute preparations before kickoff.

Kickoff time: No matter what else you may hear, the Super Bowl kicks off at 3:29 p.m. at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. The pregame festivities, including the National Anthem, music performances and more, should last about half an hour.

Postgame show: The official Super Bowl XLV postgame show is set for 7 p.m., but will actually begin immediately following the game. FOX will have interviews with the winning team, the presentation of the Lombardi trophy and the presentation of the Super Bowl MVP, all broadcast live from the stadium.

With a full slate of action, tune-in early and often for everything Super Bowl throughout the day. For more on the game, check out our Super Bowl XLV StoryStream.
