The American football Super Bowl attracts viewers from across the globe for one of the biggest events in the sporting calendar.

However, UK viewers will need to adjust their sleep patterns or have a large supply of coffee handy, with this year's event kicking off at 11.30pm on Sunday (February 11).

With that in mind, very few venues will be open to show the Super Bowl, which this year features the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.


To help UK viewers wishing to catch the event, we've listed five venues in and near St Albans that will be showing the action.

1. The Victoria, Victoria Street

The pub has screens inside and outside, with wooden booths on an outdoor decking area.

A social media post from the pub reads: "Touch down with us for our first ever Super Bowl party!

"Kick off 23.30 and open 'til late!"
