The teams for the 54th annual Super Bowl are now set. It’ll be the AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs facing off against the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 2 in Miami Gardens, Florida, at Hard Rock Stadium.
The 49ers secured a spot in the big game Sunday night when they defeated the Green Bay Packers 37-20. Earlier, the Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans 35-24 to gain their entry.
At stake in the Super Bowl: the Lombardi Trophy, the symbol of NFL championship victory.
It will be the 11th time South Florida has hosted the Super Bowl, which will be held there for the first time since 2010. The stadium is the regular season home of the Miami Dolphins. Kickoff is set for 6:30 PM Eastern time.
Fox will be the broadcast TV outlet for the game, with streaming available on fuboTV.
Almost as important as the game is the pomp and circumstance surrounding the NFL’s biggest annual event. Singing the national antem will be Demi Lovato, the Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and Disney actress. Joining her will be Christine Sun Kim, internationally renowned sound artist and performer, who will sign the song on behalf of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD).
At halftime, fans will be entertained by headliners Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
