The Kansas City Chiefs will bid for back-to-back Super Bowl victories as they face the San Francisco 49ers.

Led by star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs beat the Baltimore Ravens on the road in the AFC Championship game to reach a fourth Super Bowl in the last five seasons.

The 49ers, meanwhile, produced a remarkable comeback to edge out the Detroit Lions and book their place in Las Vegas.

These two also met in Super Bowl LIV in 2020, with Mahomes named MVP after leading his side to the Lombardi Trophy.

Here’s everything you need to know.
