Monday morning sees the culmination of another thrilling American Football season as the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots face off at Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas.

A global audience of 114.4 million people watched the game last year and more are expected to tune in for the action from the NRG Stadium this year. So will you be one of them?

The Patriots are big favourites with the bookies at $1.7 and you can get $2.37 on the Falcons stopping Tom Brady’s New England winning a fifth championship.

Almost as important as the game itself – Lady Gaga will preside over the half-time entertainment.

What time does it start?

Mercifully, here in Hong Kong we’ll be spared a fiendishly early rise with the game starting at a very reasonable 7.30am.

Where can I watch it?

There’ll be no shortage of places to catch the game if you’re looking to see it in a bar, but if you would prefer to watch the action from the comfort of your own living room, the game is being shown live on Now Sports 681 with coverage beginning at 7am.
