The 2024 Super Bowl showdown is set to take place this Sunday, with the San Francisco 49ers facing the Kansas City Chiefs for the Vince Lombardi Trophy, according to CBS News.

The Chiefs aim to become the first National Football League (NFL) franchise in 20 years to win back-to-back Super Bowl championships, but must overcome Christian McCaffrey and the Niners to do it.

As Kyle Shanahan and Andy Reid prepare their teams' schedules and playbooks for Super Bowl LVIII, fans are eager to know when the game starts, how long it runs, and all the logistics for the day so they don't miss out on any snaps, passes, plays, or Usher's smooth halftime show moves.

What you need to about Super Bowl 2024

Super Bowl LVIII will be played on Sunday, February 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and will be aired live on CBS and streamed live on Paramount+.

The game starts at 6:30pm ET on Sunday, with NFL-style pageantry before the game, including Reba McEntire's rendition of the national anthem followed by performances by Post Malone and Andra Day.

The Super Bowl is expected to end around 10pm ET, with the game potentially going into overtime.

How long are NFL quarters?

NFL football games are divided into four 15-minute quarters, separated by a halftime break.

Quarters last longer than real-time due to missed passes, timeouts, two-minute warnings, and commercial breaks. The clock stops between plays, and teams can call time-outs.

Additionally, commercial breaks add to the real-time length of a quarter.

When is Super Bowl halftime show?

Usher will hit the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show approximately at 8pm ET, two hours after kickoff.

Halftime for a regular NFL game lasts 13 minutes, but Super Bowl halftime lasts a bit longer to accommodate the show's stage setup and take down.
