The NFL is working to prepare for the biggest Super Bowl of all time, which will kick off at halftime, a league official said Wednesday.
The league’s new officiating standards will be introduced at a Super Bowl presentation on February 5.
As of the end of last season, the league had a total of 5,500 calls, a number that dropped to 4,700 calls in 2016.
In addition to the new rules, the NFL has been updating the league’s officiating staff.
The head of the officiating division, Mark Hirsch, is being replaced, while the former chief of officiating, Steve Womack, has been promoted to the same position.
The league also hired a new executive vice president for officiating.
