One of sports’ biggest events, the annual spectacular of the Super Bowl returns in 2024 as the NFL’s showpiece decider heads for a new location.

Las Vegas will host the game for the first time: Allegiant Stadium, opened in 2020 and built at a cost of nearly $2b, has been the home of the Raiders for the last four seasons.

Last year’s Super Bowl was a thriller, with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs pipping the Philadelphia Eagles to secure their third Lombardi Trophy.

The Chiefs are back in the showpiece this year as they aim for back-to-back titles, with the San Francisco 49ers – who they beat in the Super Bowl in 2020 – standing in their way.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is Super Bowl LVIII?

Super Bowl LVIII will be held Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday 11 February. Kick-off will be at 3.30pm local time (6.30pm EST/11.30pm GMT).

Who is playing in Super Bowl LVIII?

The reigning Super Bowl champions – the Kansas City Chiefs – are returning to the big game in pursuit of back-to-back titles with the San Francisco 49ers as their opponents. It is a rematch of Super Bowl LIV in 2020, where Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was named MVP en route to his first Super Bowl ring.

How can I watch it in the US?

CBS will televise the Super Bowl nationally in the United States, while the game will be streamed on Paramount+. A Spanish-language broadcast will also be available via Univision, and an alternative broadcast aimed at children will be shown live on Nickelodeon.

How can I watch it in the UK?

Viewers in the United Kingdom will be able to watch the Super Bowl on ITV1 or Sky Sports, with online coverage available via ITVX or Sky Go.
