If you happen to be in Puerto Vallarta or Riviera Nayarit on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, 2016, we've put together a sampler of sports bars and restaurants around Banderas Bay that will be hosting Super Bowl parties as the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos go head to head at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
The Panthers finished the regular season with a 15–1 record, defeating the Arizona Cardinals 49–15 in the NFC Championship Game and advancing to their second Super Bowl appearance since the founding of the franchise in 1995. The Broncos finished the regular season with a 12–4 record, and denied the New England Patriots a chance to defend their title from Super Bowl XLIX by defeating them 20–18 in the AFC Championship Game, and joined the Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, and Pittsburgh Steelers as one of four teams that have made eight appearances in the Super Bowl.
The game is the 50th edition of the Super Bowl, first played in 1967 in anticipation of the 1970 merger of the American Football League and the NFL; the league emphasized the "golden anniversary" of the game throughout the season with various gold-themed initiatives (including the adoption of gold-tinted logos across all NFL properties), as well as temporarily suspending the tradition of naming each Super Bowl game with Roman numerals (under which the game would have been known as "Super Bowl L"), so that the logo could prominently feature the Arabic numerals of 50. In addition to the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the winner of Super Bowl 50 will also receive a special 18-karat gold-plated "50" trophy.
You'll want to be in your seat by at least 5:00 pm CT (Vallarta-Nayarit Time). Kick-off is 5:30.
