With that, all the football freaks around the nation are wondering when the match would start so that they can re-schedule their weekend activities accordingly. Most of the football loyalist have kept themselves completely free to dedicate the entire day to witness the historic clash between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The match would kick off at 6:30 p.m Eastern time and 3:30 p.m Pacific Time.

The match will be witnessed live at the Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas. However, if one cannot visit Arlington, to watch the live match, then they can stick to FOX television. This would be the eighth time that the Pittsburgh Steelers are appearing for the Super Bowl Championship while the Green-bay Packers would make their fifth appearance. Although the Steelers have six preceding Super Bowl victories and the Packers have 3, many experts are under the impression that it could be the turn of the Packers, to make it big this time. The Steelers ended the NFL 2010 season with 124, while the Packers concluded with 106.

During the half time, the two performers, who have been scheduled to perform, are Black Eyed Peas and Usher. However, this marks another history, as since 2004, the organizers did not dare to invite any female performers on this event, after the infamous wardrobe malfunctioning of Janet Jackson. This year, Fergie, the front runner of Black Eyes Peas, has assured that she would make the show as decent as possible, with the least possibility of any such mishap. Christina Aguilera would be singing the national anthem.
