The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers will face each other again in Super Bowl 2024, four years after their epic clash in Super Bowl LIV 2024. Here’s everything you need to know about the game, the teams, the performers, and how to watch it.
The biggest event in American sports is back, and it’s going to be bigger than ever. Super Bowl LVIII will take place on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024, at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is the first time that the Super Bowl will be held in the Sin City, and it promises to be a spectacle of entertainment, glamour, and excitement.
The game will feature a rematch of Super Bowl LIV, which saw the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 31-20. The Chiefs, led by star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce, are the reigning Super Bowl champions and have won two of the last three titles. The 49ers, led by quarterback Brock Purdy and running back Christian McCaffrey, are looking for their first Super Bowl win since 1995 and their sixth overall.
Both teams have dominated their respective conferences this season, finishing with the best records in the AFC and NFC. The Chiefs beat the Baltimore Ravens 27-24 in the AFC Championship Game, while the 49ers routed the Detroit Lions 38-17 in the NFC Championship Game. Both teams have explosive offenses, stingy defenses, and experienced coaches. The game is expected to be a close and thrilling contest, with the Chiefs favored by three points, according to the latest odds.
The Super Bowl is not just about the game, though. It’s also about the show. And this year’s show will feature some of the biggest names in music and entertainment. Singer and TIME Person of the Year Taylor Swift will perform the halftime show, joined by her boyfriend and Chiefs star Travis Kelce. Swift and Kelce have been dating since last year, and their relationship has been the talk of the town. They are expected to perform some of their hit songs, as well as debut a new duet. Country legend Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem, while rapper Post Malone will sing America the Beautiful. Nickelodeon will also air a special production for children, featuring SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer.
The Super Bowl will be broadcast nationally by CBS, and it can be streamed via Paramount Plus as well as via the NFL Network’s app or website. The game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET, but the pregame coverage will start much earlier. The Super Bowl is the most watched U.S. telecast ever, and this year’s edition may break the record, as millions of fans tune in to witness history.
