Super Bowl 2012 in Sydney, Australia

We're going to be in Sydney on Monday, Feb 6, 2012. We've already ascertained that the Super Bowl will be live at 10am. Any suggestions about where we (four of us) can watch it? Any good "American" sports bars? Or is it best to hunker down in our hotel room (in which case, what channel is it on?)?

If you can't get an invite to the us consul party then head to the star city sports bar.

I think many pubs will be showing it, so you can just ask around when you get here.

ESPN will be showing it, and based on previous years it should also be on ONE HD.

Being that it airs on Monday morning, you really shouldn’t have any trouble getting a bar to put it on for you. The link below has a list of some of the venues that screened the game this year, might be worth checking with the venues closer to the date to see if they will be screening it next year.

It will be shown live with sound on the big screen at the Robin Hood Hotel in Waverly. Should be a great day

Also try the Cheers Sports Bar on George St,near the corner of Liverpool St,opp World Sq.I think it may be on One HD,which is a free to air digital channel or one of the pay tv channels would have it.

I've gone to Cheers since I moved here in 2009. Changing it up this year I think. However, here is a list I found online. Not listed is The Star (new name for Star City). They said 1 p.m. on the main screen in the sports bar with audio. But I am double checking the time, as this was per the casino receptionist, and 630pm on the east coast US is 1030 am here. Anyway, here is the site with listing by state to watch the game!

If you do intend to stay in your hotel room and watch it, make sure they offer Foxtel ESPN or free to air 1HD. It sounds silly but I stayed in the Four Points by Sheraton when in Sydney and they did not have all the F-T-A channels (No OneHD) or ESPN (April 2011) only the Fox Sports Channels.
