When Is Super Bowl 2022? Date, Time and Location for Bengals vs. Rams Clash

The stage is set for the biggest football game of the year, Super Bowl LVI.

Cincinnati Bengals will take on the Los Angeles Rams in the fight for the Vince Lombardi trophy, following this weekend's two conference play-offs.

The Bengals are hoping for a first Super Bowl victory. Prior to this season, the Bengals had not won a play off game in 32 years.

Meanwhile, the Rams seek a first Super Bowl victory as a Los Angeles-based team.

Rams' previous and only Super Bowl title was in 2000, when the franchise was based in St. Louis.

This year's Super Bowl will see the return of full capacity crowds, after crowds were limited due to COVID at last year's Super Bowl between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Here's all you need to know about the upcoming Super Bowl LVI.
