Follow all our Super Bowl 100 coverage below as we unveil each chapter of the series.
Throughout the season Sports Illustrated and WIRED will explore, in stories and in video, the enormous changes that football will see over the next five decades. The revolution is already under way in player training and tracking, data analysis, stadium and equipment design, and the treatment and prevention of concussions—all leading to a vast array of technological marvels that will make the league, 50 years from now, resemble the love child of Georges Halas and Lucas.
Our series will conclude just before Super Bowl 50 in February, when SI and WIRED will publish a sci-fi dispatch from Super Bowl 100, in the year 2066.
