BIG GAME DATE & LOCATION

The Super Bowl will take place on the second Sunday in February, making Sunday, February 11, 2024, the official date of this year’s Big Game.

And because the final game of the season is always played at a predetermined neutral site, we already know where it’s taking place: Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

WHAT IS THE START TIME FOR THE BIG GAME?

The official kick off time for Super Bowl LVIII is 6:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. local time).

Despite the game itself only consisting of four 15-minute quarters, a typical NFL championship broadcast will last between three and four hours. This happens for a number of reasons; apart from the many clock stoppages during the game, there are also commercials and the all-important halftime show. More on that below.

WHOS IN THE SUPER BOWL?

Super Bowl LVIII will be a rematch between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. For the second time in five years, these two teams will go head-to-head in the biggest game of the year.

AFC POSTSEASON PREDICTIONS (Updated 1/29/24)

From the AFC, experts have mixed predictions, but the general consensus is that the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins are three of the teams with the highest chances of making it all the way.

And it all came down to the defending Super Bowl champs, the Chiefs, against the AFC No. 1 seed, the Ravens. When it came down to it, though, the Chiefs beat out MVP favorite, Lamar Jackson, and the rest of his team for a 17-1 win.

NFC POSTSEASON PREDICTIONS (Updated 1/29/24)

As far as the NFC goes, the San Francisco 49ers are the clear conference favorites, with the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles behind them. Considering the 49ers did serious damage to both of those teams earlier this season, though, it will be an uphill battle to push them out of first place.

And while predictions were right about the 49ers making it all the way, few were expecting the Detroit Lions to reach the NFC Championship. As one of the four teams to have never made the Super Bowl, the Lions hoped to make history, and with a 24-7 lead, it looked like that would be possible. 

Unfortunately for the underdogs, powerhouse San Francisco persevered, and managed to take back the lead for a 31-34 win. 

SUPER BOWL 2024 HALFTIME SHOW

If your favorite part of the Super Bowl is the halftime show, you aren’t alone. And this year that’s especially true, as the main performer at the Super Bowl will be the one and only, Usher. After making hit music for over two decades, it’s Usher’s time to shine.

And while this will be his first time performing solo at the Big Game, he has had some experience after performing with Black Eyed Peas lead will.i.am back in 2011.

We won’t know what Usher has in store for us until the show, but one thing you can look forward to is the release of his ninth studio album, which will be released on the same day as the Big Game.

SUPER BOWL 58 COMMERCIALS

Another favorite part of the game for many viewers is the wide range of commercials. Selling at as high as $7 million for a 30 second spot, iconic brands go all out for a chance to gain the attention of the 110 million viewers. And this year is no exception.

In fact, slots for Super Bowl commercials were nearly completely booked by the beginning of November 2023. Some of the brands you can expect to see on the flat screen include Nerds, M&Ms, BetMGM, Coors, Oreos and so many more.
