Super Bowl 2024 preview

Defending champions Kansas City are set to contest their fourth Super Bowl in five years the Chiefs Faithful – including Taylor Swift – are hopeful of yet another Super  Bowl victory.

Kansas won't have it easy. They will have to overcome one of the NFL's strongest teams in the San Francisco 49ers, who have won five Super Bowls but lost to none other than the Chiefs at Super Bowl 2020.

Will Taylor Swift be at Super Bowl 58? Yes. The singer-songwriter has landed in Los Angeles and will be in Las Vegas to watch her boyfriend, Kansas Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, compete in Super Bowl 58. Don't expect to see her in the Halftime Show – Justin Bieber is expected to guest star.

Both coaches are brilliant offence-minded technicians with the brains behind the 49ers, Kyle Shanahan, regarded as particularly inventive but Andy Reid’s Super Bowl credentials (four appearances, two wins) plus their best defence in recent years give him and his team the edge on the big stage. 

Here's all the information you need to watch Super Bowl 2024 as the San Francisco 49ers play the all-conquering Kansas City Chiefs in the biggest game on the NFL calendar – including in 4K HDR.

Why is the Super Bowl on Sunday?

Every Super Bowl since Super Bowl I in 1967 has taken place on Sunday. Why? Because most Americans relax at home on a Sunday, which means a larger potential TV audience and thus higher ad revenue. The Super Bowl on Sunday has become a tradition, along with the Halftime Show.

The tradition of hosting the Super Bowl on a Sunday has become deeply ingrained in American culture, establishing Super Bowl Sunday as a special day for sports, entertainment, and gatherings.
