Super Bowl XLV - Super Bowl 2011 - Superbowl XLV

Super Bowl XLV Tickets

The 2011 Super Bowl XLV will be the 45th annual edition of the Super Bowl in American football, and the 41st annual championship game of the modern-era National Football League (NFL). A question that we hear a lot: When is the Superbowl? The game will be played on February 6, 2011, at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This will be the 1st time that the Super Bowl will be held in the Dallas–Fort Worth area and it will be the 3rd time it will be held in Texas (Houston was the host city to Super Bowls VIII and XXXVIII). And - as announced end of November 2010, it will be a Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl XLV Half Time Show headliner.

Since many of you are interested in the advertisers and the advertising competitions during the Super Bowl 2011, here some additional info:

Pepsi-Cola will return to the 2011 Super Bowl after a one-year retreat with three ads for their Pepsi Max drink, which is the official soft drink of the NFL. Pepsi's Frito-Lay brand will also advertise Doritos. Both brands will have their advertisements created by web users as part of the annual USA TODAY Super Bowl Ad Meter contest, which offers a prize of US $5 million. In addition, Anheuser-Busch InBev, , and Hyundai have announced plans to buy ad time.

As in 2010 (for Super Bowl XLIV), Doritos launched its Doritos Commercial "Crash The Super Bowl Ad Contest" with - again- many ad submissions by aspiring marketeers for Superbowl XLV.
