Super Bowl 2024, 49ers vs Chiefs: times, how to watch on TV, stream online
Find out how you can watch Super Bowl LVIII on television or stream it online, as the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs meet in Las Vegas.
Super Bowl LVIII will give us a rematch of the 2019 NFL title decider, as the San Francisco 49ers seek revenge on the Kansas City Chiefs for their defeat to the Missourians four years ago. Of course, the Chiefs will also be looking to win their second consecutive Super Bowl title, having defeated the Philadelphia Eagles just last year.
The 49ers reached the eighth Super Bowl in their history by beating the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship Game, while the Chiefs have made it to the showpiece event for the fourth time in the last five seasons, having seen off the Baltimore Ravens to win the AFC crown.
Can Chiefs emulate Patriots at Super Bowl LVIII?
As defending Super Bowl champions, Kansas City are bidding to become the first team to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy two years in a row for nearly two decades. No team has won back-to-back Super Bowls since Tom Brady and the New England Patriots achieved the feat in 2004.
The Super Bowl will be held in Nevada for the first time and will be the game’s third consecutive edition in western United States. The previous two Super Bowls were hosted by Inglewood, California, in 2022 and by Glendale, Arizona, in 2023. Next year, the fixture returns to the east coast, with New Orleans the venue.
The Super Bowl is a highly regarded and followed event that draws millions of viewers from around the globe - and not just for the football. The TV ads and the Halftime Show - which this year stars singer-songwriter Usher - are almost as keenly anticipated as the game itself.

Super Bowl LVIII: 49ers vs Chiefs preview
The Kansas City Chiefs have been dominating the AFC in the 2020s, while the San Francisco 49ers have been the most successful franchise in the NFC during this decade. It’s only fitting that they meet at Allegiant Stadium on the NFL’s biggest stage.
The Chiefs beat the Ravens 17-10 in the AFC Championship Game, while the 49ers overcame a 17-point second-half deficit to defeat the Lions 34-31 in the NFC conference final. San Francisco will look for their first championship since the 1994 season, while the Chiefs will try to win their third in the last five years.
When the teams met at Super Bowl LIV in Miami, the Chiefs were 31-20 winners - a victory that secured the franchise’s first NFL championship since 1969, and a first Vince Lombardi Trophy for the Kansas City team led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid.
Watch - 49ers vs Chiefs: this looks familiar...
Pop icon Taylor Swift has been a regular Chiefs watcher, attending all of Kansas City’s postseason games to cheer on her boyfriend, tight end Travis Kelce. Neither Swift nor Kelce has confirmed whether or not the singer will be at Allegiant Stadium, but her touring commitments mean she’ll have to hotfoot it back from Japan if she’s to be at Super Bowl LVIII. The day before the game, the 34-year-old completes a four-night run of Eras Tour concerts in Tokyo. In a light-hearted post on X this week, the Japanese embassy in Washington, DC, said: “The Embassy can confidently Speak Now to say that if she departs Tokyo in the evening after her concert, she should comfortably arrive in Las Vegas before the Super Bowl begins.”
