Tomorrow’s the big morning, with NFL fans ready for what promises to be an amazing Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. We hope you’ll join the Beijinger at the Kerry Hotel Beijing for the Official Super Bowl Party. There are also plenty of other viewing events going on, and by the way, the game is NOT being broadcast on CCTV-5. Here’s a round-up of places to watch, what NFL fans in China think the sport needs to do to grow here, and other NFL stuff from the year.

Cheer Up: NFL Cheerleaders May Be Gone, But Football Is Still on the Way
It seems it just wouldn’t be an NFL season in Beijing if the New England Patriots Cheerleaders didn’t show up. Returning to Beijing for a seventh time, they showed up for a Monday Night Football viewing party and also did a cheer clinic at a local international school.
Enjoy the game Monday! Kick-off is at 7:30am local Beijing time.
