Traditional Chinese Holidays Explained: The Super Bowl

By Jan 30, 2019 Sports & Recreation
Seriously, is there anything more traditionally Chinese than watching the Super Bowl? They even made Chinese New Year the same day to celebrate. Kidding! This year’s game will be the New England Patriots (again!) vs the Los Angeles Rams on February 4, and many places that would usually be empty during Chinese New Year will instead be packed with American football fiends, salivating over an oval "pigskin" (appropriate for the Year of the Pig!) being tossed and kicked across a long, green field while huge men ram into each other. Stimulating! Kick-off is at 7.30am Shanghai time. Here's where to watch it!

Doors open at 6.30am for a screening of the Super Bowl, on Chinese New Year day. Free entry and a full brunch menu and drink deals available. Kick-off at 7.30am.
