This is a re-port of a post from last year, but with the Super Bowl coming up this weekend, we thought it appropriate to post it again.
In short, yes, but there are stipulations. First off, it’s probably best to avoid the use of the term “Super Bowl” as it is protected trademark of the NFL. Secondly, a church should only use equipment that it uses on an ongoing basis for ministry purposes(i.e. don’t rent anything) and must show the event “live.” Lastly, the church shouldn’t charge admission. The NFL has stated that they are OK with churches taking donations to defray cost, but admission charges are not permitted.
