The wait is over! Super Bowl LVIII aka the 2024 Super Bowl is today, and everyone's preparing for the big night. After an intense season, two incredible teams have reached the Super Bowl this year: the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
Taking place at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, on Feb. 11, viewers will see the Chiefs and 49ers meet up again to compete in the annual league championship game of the NFL. The last time these two teams faced off was at Super Bowl LIV in 2020. QB Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the 49ers, 31-20, and took home the Vince Lombardi Trophy that year. In fact, this was Mahomes first Super Bowl victory. He would later lead the Chiefs to another Super Bowl victory in 2023.
Of course, Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs are looking to lock down another win and beat the 49ers in the big game tonight, but we'll just have to wait and see. The Chiefs have some tough competition, so it'll definitely be an entertaining game.
Where and how to watch the 2024 Super Bowl
As mentioned above, the NFL championship game takes place on Sunday, Feb. 11. It will be broadcast live on CBS, Nickelodeon (family-friendly telecast), and Univision (Spanish-language telecast) as well as streamed live on Paramount+ and the NFL+ streaming service. But keep in mind that if you're watching the Super Bowl through NFL+, you can only do so on a phone or tablet. Also, you'll need to have a subscription to NFL+ or Paramount+ if you want to watch the big game on either of these streaming platforms.
You also have the option to watch the game on a live TV streaming service that offers CBS channels, like fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. But again, you'll have to have a subscription.
Kickoff starts at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. CT on Feb. 11, and you can expect to see eight-time Grammy winner and R&B sensation Usher take the stage at halftime performing some of his greatest hits in a 13-minute long set.
But before the game even starts, music artists such as Reba McEntire, Post Malone, and Andra Day are set to perform. Post Malone will kick off the pre-game festivities by singing "America the Beautiful." Then, Grammy Award-winning actress and singer Andra Day will follow his performance by singing "Lift Every Voice and Sing." Lastly, Reba McEntire, who is considered by many to be "the Queen of Country," will sing the national anthem before kickoff.
It's going to be an amazing night, and we can't wait to see which team will be Super Bowl champions this year!
