The Super Bowl LVIII spectacle is scheduled to be held this Sunday, featuring the San Francisco 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs in pursuit of the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The Chiefs aspire to secure the distinction of being the first National Football League (NFL) franchise in two decades to clinch consecutive Super Bowl championships, yet they face the challenge of overcoming Christian McCaffrey and the Niners.

As Kyle Shanahan and Andy Reid finalise their teams' schedules and playbooks for Super Bowl LVIII, fans are keen to ascertain the game's start time, duration, and all the logistical details for the day to ensure they do not miss any crucial moments, such as snaps, passes, plays, or Usher's polished halftime show moves.

What you need to about Super Bowl 2024

Super Bowl LVIII is scheduled for Sunday, February 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and will be broadcast live on CBS, also available for streaming on Paramount+.

The game kicks off at 6:30 pm ET on Sunday, with pre-game NFL-style festivities, featuring Reba McEntire's rendition of the national anthem, succeeded by performances from Post Malone and Andra Day.

The anticipated conclusion of the Super Bowl is around 10 pm ET, with the possibility of the game extending into overtime.

Duration of NFL quarters

NFL football matches are structured into four 15-minute quarters, interspersed with a halftime break.

Quarters tend to last longer than real-time due to factors such as missed passes, timeouts, two-minute warnings, and commercial breaks. The clock halts between plays, and teams have the option to call time-outs.

Moreover, commercial breaks contribute to the real-time extension of a quarter.

When is Super Bowl halftime show?

Usher is slated to grace the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show at approximately 8 pm ET, two hours after the kickoff.

While halftime for a regular NFL game lasts 13 minutes, the Super Bowl halftime extends a bit longer to accommodate the intricate stage setup and dismantling required for the show.
