Super Bowl XLV will be the 45th annual edition of the Super Bowl in American football, and the 41st annual championship game of the modern-era National Football League (NFL). The contest will be between the representative from the NFC and the representative from the AFC. The league has not yet finalized the game date. The local host committee's web site, however, features a countdown timer which is counting down the days until February 6, 2011 (the first Sunday in February).

The game will be held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This will be the first time that the Super Bowl will be held in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area and the third time it will be held in Texas (Houston was the host city to Super Bowls VIII and XXXVIII).

The game will be televised nationally by Fox.

Host selection process

Three NFL cities presented bids for the game:

  • On January 25, 2007, Super Bowl VI MVP Roger Staubach was named chairman of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Bid Committee,[3] heading the Metroplex's bid effort. On February 13, 2007, Mayor Robert Cluck and the Arlington City Council passed a resolution supporting the North Texas Bid Committee.[4] On March 28, 2007, Mayor Laura Miller and the rest of Dallas City Council passed a resolution agreeing to back the committee's efforts.[5]

NFL owners voted to select the North Texas site on May 22, 2007.[6]

Starting with Super Bowl XLV, the template of all Super Bowl logos will virtually remain the same. The only differences from year to year will be the stadium backdrop and the Roman numerals for the game. For Super Bowl XLV, Cowboys Stadium is featured and "XLV" signifying the forty-fifth Super Bowl game. Therefore, Super Bowl XLVI's logo is expected to feature Lucas Oil Stadium.[7]

Halftime

It has been rumored that the front-runners for the Super Bowl right now are The Eagles.[8] Journey fans have also made a petition to get their band in.[9]
