With less than three hours before Super Bowl LI’s kickoff, brands are lined up to take the field in hopes their campaigns will have a lasting effect that will help them reach their advertising goals throughout the rest of 2017.

One of the first brands out of the gate was Intel, releasing its official 30-second Super Bowl spot on January 12. The ad, featuring NFL MVP Tom Brady, showcases Intel’s 360-degree replay technology — the same technology Fox will be using when it airs the game.

Since Intel released its ad, a number of other brands have launched either teaser ads or dropped their Official Super Bowl spots. To keep track of this year’s Super Bowl brands — from the advertisers releasing teaser ads to official spots and campaign details — we’ve built the following list, adding Super Bowl LI ad news as it became available.
