Pepsi Zero Sugar is the sponsor of the show. An NFL representative said that the league committee is trying to do their best to sign her up. But, these reports turned out to be just rumored as the singer, herself, debunked the statements at her Adele Live 2016 concert tour of Los Angeles.

Date: When is Super Bowl 2017?

Adele stated that NFL offered her to perform at the 2017 NFL SuperBowl, but she politely declined the offer. Further, she said, “that show doesn’t belong to music, and I actually can’t dance or anything like that. They were very kind people who brought the offer, but I politely refused the offer. I am sorry. I may accept it next time as I am going to do a dance album next time.”

Later on, NFL denied that they didn’t approach Adele. The organization put out an official statement denying the stated offer.
