Super Bowl XLIX guide

Make your party a championship event

Last updated: January 2015

Super Bowl XLIX will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Feb. 1, 2015, with kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET. Before you and your family and friends settle into the pregame shows and the NBC broadcast of the contest between the New England Patriots and the defending champion Seattle Seahawks, follow our game plan for making your Super Bowl gathering a winner, with advice on best TVs to watch the game and tips for eating and drinking, cleaning up, and more.

Speaking of winning, don’t forget that your 2015 tax return to be filed next year should list any financial gains you achieve through a friendly office pool or bets on the game (same goes for losses).

Remember, a major event like the Super Bowl always brings out opportunistic scammers, so beware of bogus game tickets, poorly made knock-off team apparel, counterfeit memorabilia, and the like. Get all the details on how to avoid getting ripped off.
