I would like to talk about one of the biggest sporting event in the world: the super bowl.
The Super Bowl is the Championship finals of American football who sees confront the winners of the two conferences for the title of champion of the NFL. It is the most watched sporting event in the USA.
I looked on 7 February, the final betweenthe Carolina Panthers, champions of the national conference (NFC) to the Denver Broncos, champions of the conference American (AFC) and I must say it's impressive to see ! I wasn't a big fan of American football but this event positively please me.
The match is played at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Californa and ended with a victory for the Denver Broncos with a score of 24-10.
More than a game, it's a real show : The British group Coldplay as well as Beyonce and Bruno Mars provided the show during halftime while Lady Gaga sang the American national anthem for the opening of the game.
The 50th Super Bowl was seen Sunday by 111.9 million of Americans, a figure down slightly from 2015. According to figures from the Nielsen Institute, this hearing is less to 114.4 million and 112.1 million respectively registered February 1, 2015, and February 2, 2014, when the previous two editions of Super Bowl.
But the final of Sunday falls to third place in the most watched programs in the history of American television. Among the eight programmes exceeded the hundred million viewers in the United States, seven are of Super Bowl.
Other figures: 300 million euros of advertising revenue for the 4 hours of antenna: result, that night, the commercial spot of 30 seconds will cost nearly $ 5 million...
During this final, the Americans will eat 11 million pizzas, 14,500 tons of chips and 1, 25 billion chicken wings, crazy isn't it ?
About 4 and a half million in 2015 were specially purchased for the event.
An event that represents American madness... ahah!
