American football fans from the AmCham Sweden network who helped fill the Hard Rock Café to view Super Bowl XXXXVIII live from MetLife Stadium in New Jersey anticipated a close contest.
However, the Seattle Seahawks put the game out of reach early on and easily defeated the Denver Broncos by one of the largest winning margins in Super Bowl history. As confetti streamed onto the field after as the final seconds on the clock ticked down, the scoreboard displayed a final score
of 43 to 8.
Even though the game didn’t kick off until after midnight, and didn’t conclude until after 4:00 Stockholm-time, the majority of the crowd remained until the presentation of the Lombardi Trophy to the newly crowned champion Seahawks.
AmCham Sweden would like to thank the staff at the Hard Rock Café for a great evening, and Viaplay for sponsoring the event. More than 100 local American football players and their supporters attended.
In addition to the football game, the Hardrock Café crowd was entertained by a marching band from Stockholm before kick-off and halftime.
