Though the date and location for the Super Bowl changes every year, the borderline unhealthy fixation on America’s biggest professional sporting event is a constant. In 2020, when the NFL’s 100th season ends with Super Bowl 54, that domestic and global attention will turn to Miami.
The Super Bowl in 2020, the game that will crown an NFL champion for the 2019 season, is scheduled to take place Sunday, Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. That stadium, of course, is home to the Miami Dolphins, one of the NFL teams we know will not be playing in the Super Bowl in 2020.
The latest Super Bowl odds suggest at least one new contender will reach the big game in 2020. According to Sportsbook Review, the Ravens are the favorites to make and win the Super Bowl. Other favorites to reach and win the Super Bowl in 2020 based on the odds are the Saints and Chiefs, the teams that lost in the NFC and AFC championship games, respectively, last season. Other top contenders this year include the 49ers, Packers, Patriots and Seahawks.
We won’t know for a while what teams will play in the Super Bowl in 2020, but we do know one thing about Miami: It knows how to throw a party. So expect Super Bowl 54 and all the events that surround the big game to be nothing short of a spectacular show. That includes a very Miami-appropriate halftime performance.
Below is everything you need to know about the Super Bowl in 2020, including the date, location, odds and halftime show info.
When is Super Bowl 2020?
- Date: Sunday, Feb. 2
- Kickoff time: 6:30 p.m. ET
- TV channel: Fox
- Live stream: Fox Sports app | DAZN (in Canada)
Super Bowl 54, also known as Super Bowl LIV, is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020. The official kickoff time will be determined at a later date, but the ballpark of 6:30 p.m. ET has become the traditional start time for the Super Bowl.
Every Super Bowl since 2003 has taken place during the first week of February. From 1967-2003, all but one Super Bowl took place in January.
The Super Bowl in 2020 will mark the second time a Super Bowl has been played on Feb. 2. On the same date six years ago, the Seahawks dominated the Broncos in New York to win Super Bowl 48.
Per usual, the Super Bowl in 2020 will take place one week after the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla., and two weeks after the AFC and NFC championship games. The next notable event on the NFL calendar after the Super Bowl is the 2020 NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
The 2020 NFL league year begins March 18, a little more than a month after the 2019 season concludes with Super Bowl 54 in Miami.
Where is Super Bowl 2020?
The Super Bowl in 2020 will be played in a city that’s no stranger to America’s biggest game. But the venue will be a fresh addition to Super Bowl history.
Super Bowl 54 will be played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., a city located in north-central Miami-Dade County roughly 15 miles up I-95 from central Miami. The stadium, home to both the Miami Dolphins and the Miami Hurricanes, was selected as the host venue for the Super Bowl in 2020 in part because of its warm location, but also because of recent renovations.
The NFL made South Florida the host of Super Bowl 54 back in 2016, when Miami competed against Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa and Los Angeles to secure the big game and when Hard Rock Stadium’s renovation project was completed.
While the stadium’s seating capacity was reduced from 75,000 to 65,000, the renovation featured new video boards, suites and seating pods.
“We were confident. It was definitely our most competitive bid ever,” said chairman of the Super Bowl host committee Rodney Barreto at the time. “A $450-million-plus enhancement to the Dolphins’ stadium. A budget of cash and incentives valued at more than $40 million. A warm weather destination that always delivers. Always.
“We are truly thankful to Mr. Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins, for all his support and assistance throughout this process.”
Added Miami-Dade County mayor Carlos Gimenez: “I can’t think of a better place to host the Super Bowl than right here in our world-class community. Miami has hosted more Super Bowls than any other city, and it’s clear why. This is the place to live, work and play, and hosting the Super Bowl at Dolphins’ stadium once again serves as further evidence that Miami is a major event community.”
Indeed, the Miami area already has hosted 10 Super Bowls, and its 11th will break a tie with New Orleans for the most in the country. (New Orleans, though, will create another tie when it hosts Super Bowl 58 in 2024.)
Now called Hard Rock Stadium, the venue the Dolphins call home originally was named Joe Robbie Stadium when it opened in 1987. It has been renamed seven times since and has hosted five Super Bowls, with the old Miami Orange Bowl having hosted South Florida’s other five Super Bowls.
Super Bowl 2020 odds
No team has ever played a Super Bowl in its own city. That won’t happen in 2020, as the Dolphins failed to make the playoffs.
Miami’s division rival in New England had long been the favorite to reach and win the Super Bowl in 2020 ever since it won last year’s title. However, there has been some significant movement throughout the 2019 regular season.
The 49ers, for example, opened at +4500 to win the Super Bowl in 2020. That has dropped below +350 at most sportsbooks, as San Francisco was the last undefeated team remaining in the regular season and enters the playoffs as the No. 1 seed din the NFC. The 49ers have the third best odds to win the Super Bowl behind the Ravens and Chiefs.
The opposite can be said of the defending NFC champion Rams, who opened at +1000 to win the Super Bowl in 2020 but slipped out of the playoff picture completely this season.
Below are the odds to win Super Bowl 54, via Caesars, as of late December.

Future Super Bowl locations, host sites
When the NFL considers sites for future Super Bowl locations, many requirements must be met by potential cities, their venues and their accommodations. Stadium quality is among the priorities, which is why several of the next five Super Bowls will be played in new or recently renovated stadiums.
That’s why Minnesota was awarded Super Bowl 52 back in 2018, after all; same for Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta, Super Bowl 54 in Miami and Super Bowl 56 in Los Angeles. Weather is also being a factor when the NFL considers future Super Bowl locations.
That will be the case again in 2020, when the Super Bowl will be played in a recently renovated stadium and in warm weather. Below are the sites the NFL has pinned as future Super Bowl locations.
|Year||Super Bowl host site|
|2020||South Florida, Hard Rock Stadium, Super Bowl 54|
|2021||Tampa, Raymond James Stadium, Super Bowl 55|
|2022||Los Angeles, Los Angeles Stadium, Super Bowl 56|
|2023||Glendale, University of Phoenix Stadium, Super Bowl 57|
|2024||New Orleans, Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Super Bowl 58|
Super Bowl halftime show 2020
Neither Jennifer Lopez nor Shakira is a Miami native, but nobody doubts the duo will deliver an appropriate South Florida vibe with its halftime performance at the Super Bowl in 2020.
Pepsi and the NFL collaborated with Roc Nation to bring the two performance icons together for the first time ever.
“Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the halftime show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl,” said Lopez when the act as announced. “And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th season, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage.”
Added Shakira: “I’m so honored to be taking on one of the world’s biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world. And to top it off, on my birthday. This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime.”
Lopez is an award-winning singer, actress, producer and entertainer who has established herself in music, film and television. She has sold more than 75 million records and has a cumulative worldwide box-office gross of more than $3 billion.
Lopez has been named to the TIME 100 list, Forbes’ Most Powerful Celebrity and People’s first “Most Beautiful Woman in the World,” in addition to being nominated for both Golden Globe and Grammy awards and receiving the MTV Video Vanguard Award.
Shakira is a Colombian singer-songwriter and multi-Grammy award winner. She has sold more than 75 million records worldwide and has won numerous awards. She is the only artist from South America to have a No. 1 song in the U.S., has had four of the 20 top-selling hits of the last decade and is one of the top five YouTube artists of all time.
Shakira’s latest album, “El Dorado,” charted No. 1 on iTunes in 37 countries, won best pop vocal album at the 2017 Latin Grammy Awards and best Latin pop album at the 2018 Grammy Awards. With more than 10 billion streams, it is one of the most streamed female albums of all time.
