The 2013 Super Bowl - Super Bowl XLVII -  will take place on February 3rd, 2013.

Super Bowl XLVII will be the 47th edition of the Super Bowl and the 43rd modern era National Football League championship game.

The 2013 Super Bowl is scheduled to take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

As a result of the game taking place on February 3rd, the 2013 Mardi Gras calendar in Orleans Parish will be changed. Parades scheduled prior to, and on February 3rd, are likely going to be brought forward by a week, as was the case in 2002 when the September 11th attacks caused a one-week delay in the 2001 NFL season, resulting in Super Bowl XXXVI falling within the Mardi Gras parade calendar.

The 2013 Super Bowl will mark the tenth time that New Orleans has hosted the biggest game of the year.

The last Super Bowl game to be played in New Orleans was Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002, which saw the New England Patriots beat the St. Louis Rams.

By being played indoors at the Superdome, the 2013 Super Bowl will also mark the first time three Super Bowls in a row have been played in indoor stadiums, following Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium and Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium, although both those venues do have retractable roofs.
