Super Bowl 2020

In 2005, NFL owners voted to award Super Bowl 2020 to Kansas City, Missouri. However, a pair of sales taxes in Jackson County had to be passed in order to win the bid for the big game. One of the taxes was to help construct a rolling roof for Arrowhead Stadium, but the measure did not pass. As a result, the Chiefs pulled their request to host the game.

Super Bowl 2020

Super Bowl 2020 will mark the third time the state of Arizona and the greater metropolitan Phoenix area will host the big game. The Super Bowl first came to the desert in 1996, when the Dallas Cowboys clashed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX. The game was played at the home of the Arizona State football team, Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

Larry Brown had two big interceptions in the second half and the Cowboys went on to down the Steelers, 27-17. Brown was named the Most Valuable Player of the game, which featured six future Hall of Famers.

Super Bowl 2020 will be the first title bout in the desert since the epic matchup between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 54

The Pats entered the game a perfect 18-0 on the season and were a 12-point favorite over the Giants. The Patriots took a 14-10 lead with 2:42 left in the fourth quarter, but Eli Manning found Plaxico Burress on a 13-yard touchdown pass with 35 seconds left to give the Giants a stunning 17-14 win. The game-winning drive was highlighted by David Tyree’s catch in which he pinned the ball against his helmet as he went to the ground.

Super Bowl Squares

A Super Bowl squares pool or contest can add even more excitement to the big game. The winners in a squares pool or contest are determined by the score at the end of each quarter or the game. Continue reading to understand how a Super Bowl squares contest works and how you can run your own in February. The information published below is for entertainment purposes only.

Running a Super Bowl Squares Contest

There are a few different types of football squares pools. The most popular is with a blank 10-by-10 grid that contains 100 empty squares. The participants in the contest will put their names in the individual boxes until all 100 of them have been filled.

Participants are usually free to choose any square they wish because it’s a completely random draw. While the teams can be placed on the sheet while players are picking their boxes, the numbers won’t be revealed until later so no one will have an unfair advantage in the contest. One team will go across the horizontal line and the other will go across the vertical line

Lastly, you will have to generate the number coordinates. You can generate the numbers automatically online or you can place the numbers 0-9 in a hat and draw them at random. Once generated, place the numbers in the corresponding box.

That’s it! Your Super Bowl squares contest is set and all you need is kickoff.

Super Bowl Squares Prizes

Once the field is set and kickoff is on the horizon, you have to determine how prizes will be handed out. Some enjoy handing out prizes to winners at the end of each quarter. Some like a winner-take-all approach at the end of the game. With a Super Bowl squares contest, every single play in the biggest game of the year has meaning!

2020 Super Bowl Party Games

Super Bowl Sunday is a time where millions of people gather for parties across America. More than 100-millon people watched the Super Bowl in 2012, but not everyone in attendance is there for the biggest football game of the season. If you’re in search of ways to keep the party going for non-football fans or if the game turns out to be a dud, Super Bowl party games can help get everyone involved.

2020 Super Bowl Party Games: Squares

The most popular of all the Super Bowl party games is the squares contest. This pool doesn’t require 100 different people to participate, but the most popular form of the game utilizes a 100-square grid. Participants will write their name in each one of the boxes until the grid is full. The scores at the end of quarters and at the end of the games will determine the winners.

For example, the final score at the end of Super Bowl XLVI was New York Giants 21, New England Patriots 17. The winner would be the person in the box that has Giants 1, Patriots 7. Typical prizes for winners include Super Bowl shirts, hats, and of course, cash.

Super Bowl Party Games: Prop Pool

A much more involved party game is a Super Bowl prop bets contest. In this contest, participants will fill out a questionnaire. Some of the questions include picking the winner of the game and who will be the game’s Most Valuable Player. Other questions include who will win the coin toss, how many total points will be score, and how much the winning team will win by.

The participant with the most correct answers at the end of the game will be the winner. In the event of a tie, the final score can be used to determine the winner.

2020 Super Bowl Squares Rules

A Super Bowl squares pool is one of the most popular contests during the day of the big game. However, some people have never heard of the pool, let alone know the Super Bowl squares rules. It is important to note that the following information published on this page is for entertainment purposes only.

2020 Super Bowl Squares Rules

There are a few different variations of a squares pool, but the most common involves a 10-by-10 grid that includes 100 blank boxers. The Super Bowl squares rules for this pool are very simple. The numbers 0-9 will eventually go across the vertical line and horizontal line of the squares sheet. These numbers will be determined later so that no one will have a perceived unfair advantage.

The person in charge of the pool will encourage co-workers, friends and family to join the pool until all the squares are filled up. Once the squares are filled, the participants in the Super Bowl will be added to the two lines of the grid. Determining which team goes where is not an important part of the Super Bowl squares rules.

Next, it’s time to generate the number coordinates. This can be done a number of ways, including by picking numbers out of a hat, using a deck of cards or by randomly selecting them online. The numbers are placed in the corresponding box to complete the grid.

2020 Super Bowl Squares Rules: Winners

Winners are determined using the score at the end of each quarter, half or the full game. Let’s say the NFC team has 14 points and the AFC team has 13 points. If you have the box that has 4 and 3, you win. Who is winning and losing is irrelevant for this pool, only the actual numbers in the score matter.

Typically, smaller prizes are awarded to the winners of quarters and the first half. The biggest prize is usually given to winner at the end of the game.
