Who Turned Off the Lights at the Super Bowl?

The biggest sporting event of the year experienced an electrical glitch last night.

With just 13 minutes left in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII, half of the Mercedes Benz Superdome’s lights went out. This delayed the game for over 30 minutes.

In a joint public statement between the stadium’s energy provider and the stadium’s operator, they said,

“A piece of equipment that is designed to monitor electrical load sensed an abnormality in the system. Once the issue was detected, the sensing equipment operated as designed and opened a breaker, causing power to be partially cut to the Superdome in order to isolate the issue.”

This isn’t the first time the lights have gone out on a 49ers football game. In 2011, the lights went out at Candlestick Park on a Monday night football game against the Steelers.

The Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Fransisco 49ers 34-31 to become the 2013 Super Bowl champions.
