Defending NFL champion Kansas City Chiefs will take on the San Francisco 49ers at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, airing Monday, 12 February from 10.00am AEDT.
The Chiefs look to become the first team to go back-to-back since the New England Patriots defended their crown in 2003-2004.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes becomes the youngest quarterback to start his fourth Super Bowl and would join a club of NFL legends with another victory on Monday. Travis Kelce is the other headline name – 16 of 17 targets, 191 yards and three touchdowns ensure he will be a factor in deciding the game.
All eyes will be on Travis Kelce’s support crew in the crowd, including his fellow NFL star brother, Jason and popstar partner, Taylor Swift.
San Francisco 49ers on the other hand go into their eighth Super Bowl having not won one since 1994. The last time the 49ers were in a Super Bowl in 2020 they fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 31-20.
Christian McCaffrey is the leading running back in the NFL this season and George Kittle leads all tight ends, ensuring the 49ers are primed as ever to break their Super Bowl drought.
As well as the game, the full Apple Music Halftime Show will be headlined by pop and R&B music superstar Usher.
