The San Francisco and Kansas teams will meet next Sunday, February 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the Las Vegas Riders regularly play home. The stadium was inaugurated in 2020 and will be its first time hosting the grand final, which will begin at 8:30 p.m. in Argentina (3:30 p.m. in Los Angeles).
The broadcast in the country can be tuned from cable or streaming platforms. ESPN will broadcast the match while it can also be seen simultaneously on the Star+ application, which in the package that includes the Disney+ platform costs 4,000 pesos including taxes.
Another way to see it will be from the NFL Game Pass, a package that is offered for everyone – except the US, China and Canada – and has a cost of 0.99 USD. Among its benefits, the package offered by broadcaster DAZN promises to be an “authentic American broadcast” and can be played on multiple smart TVs and consoles.
How do the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers arrive?
The Kansas City Chiefs have just defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the American Conference finals. The franchise, which has been in the NFL for 64 years, won the Super Bowl three times: in 1969, 2019 and 2022. Their two recent conquests speak of the great moment they are going through under the direction of coach Andy Reid and his star Patrick Mahomes.
In this way, the Kansas franchise will seek to win its second consecutive NFL title (the final of the 2022 season was played on February 12, 2023), while its rival has been unable to win the trophy for several years.

San Francisco 49ers won the National Conference final after beating the Detroit Lions. Although they have more Super Bowl titles than their rival – five in total – they have not been able to win it since 1994. The California franchise had the opportunity in 2019, where they also faced the Kansas City Chiefs.
The two teams met in the Super Bowl final that was played on February 2, 2020 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, where the Kansas team won. This will be an unbeatable opportunity for those from Kansas, who will go with the idea of getting revenge and breaking the curse.
The imposing stadium that will host and the halftime show
In addition to the finalist teams, fans' attention usually falls on the stadium that will host and the artist who will star in the halftime show. The chosen stadium has a special connotation for Americans, since Allegiant Stadium is located in the heart of Las Vegas, the famous Strip.

“It stands out for its aerodynamic design, futuristic touches and cutting-edge technology,” highlights Architectural Digest magazine. The stadium has already been decorated with all the Super Bowl LVIII advertising and expects to receive 65,000 spectators to vibrate with the game and the halftime show.
The night's show will be performed by Usher, the American hip hop singer who has sold 75 million albums and 200 million copies throughout his career and will now have his first opportunity in the NFL definition.

“It's the honor of a lifetime to finally cross a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list. “I can't wait to bring the world a show different from anything they've seen from me before,” highlighted the singer, who, like the franchises, will have the attention of millions of viewers.
