US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul has told Itar-Tass he is ready to invite Vladimir Putin to watch the Super Bowl together. The game between Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will take place overnight to February 3 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

McFaul admitted, however, that Putin is preoccupied with the Sochi Olympic Games this year and it is very unlikely that he will have time to watch the Super Bowl. However, the ambassador hopes to invite him to watch the final of the American football championship next year.

McFaul recalled that the US Embassy in Moscow had organized a party on the occasion of Super Bowl in the past. He said it was twenty to fifteen years ago and about a thousand guests came to watch the game then.
