What Time Is The Superbowl Kickoff?!?

Sun Feb 06, 2005 2:22 pm

Every year I find it harder and harder to find out what time the kickoff actually is. All of the media and TV guides say 6:00pm EST, but that's not when the game actually starts.

Who knows what time the game is actually going to start??? This is becoming more and more of a closely guarded secret every year for crying out loud...

I heard someone say 6:18, but I'm not certain.

In about 18 hours from the moment I type this.

And I think the pregame show on FOX starts in 6 minutes.  Big grin

Probably 6:20pm or so eastern . . . after all the preliminary bullshit. Geez, can't we just watch a football game . . .

Falcon . . .it's gonna be the Patriots by at least 7 dude.  Big thumbs up

Who gives a shit about the game, ANC! In Cleveland, we're just waiting for it to end so we can get our new head coach.  Big thumbs up

The best thing to do is ignore it and hope it goes away.

NFL.com is saying 6:30, I've heard 6:38 to be sharp.

All I know is I'm getting up nice and early tomorrow morning to pre-game...even though I'll be watching the game indoors, I'll be wearing the exact same clothes I wore to the Pats-Colts game (in 10 degree weather), just to make sure that my boys kick some Eagles butt.

And Falcon, congrats on getting Crennel as your new head coach in about 24 hours.

Hopefully you washed them since then.  Big grin

6:37 is what I have heard as of the exact kick-off. Will it be on time, probably not, but that would be a good estimate as to when to turn it on.

I agree - frustrating trying to find the exact game time, so you can tune in for that and not watch all the talk beforehand. No post here has the correct time yet, so...

Kickoff is actually scheduled for 6:27pm Eastern time, 3:27pm Pacific time, which is 11:27pm (23:27) GMT.

It has been historically listed as 6:17 or 6:18 for as long as I can remember, but that is never the case as the pregame festivities always set it back around 10 minutes. If you want to avoid the hoopla and just watch some football 6:30 would be a good time to tune in.

That'd be 2:27pm Alaska time . . . .

With all this fuss from the TV networks as to whether the game should start at 6:16 or 6:17 or 6:18, part of me wishes that the players and refs wouls just mill about for four or five minutes so as to throw them completely off. What the hell does a minute or two matter? Heck, most people's clocks have at least a minute error, so they'll have to tune in a bit earlier anyway if they want to be sure of seeing the kickoff.

Gkirk -

See my reply #10 - it's at 23:27 GMT.

Enjoy the game...and the commercials!

Plus, Paul McCartney is doing the halftime show, BTW!
