Super Bowl LIV, the 54th Super Bowl and the 50th modern-era National Football League championship game, will decide the champion for the NFL’s 2019 and 100th season. The National Football Conference champion San Francisco 49ers will play against the American Football Conference champion Kansas City Chiefs
The 54th Super Bowl has a lot of historical significance; it’s even the final game of the NFL’s 100th season. San Francisco hasn’t won a Super Bowl in 25 years, while you can double that number for the Chiefs. We’ll have what could be the best defense over the course of the entire season going against the NFL’s hottest offense. But is it really a battle between new school (the Chiefs, pass first) and old school (the Niners, run first)? The truth is, it’s really a battle between two great teams that are dominant on one side of the ball and very close to it on the other side.
When is Super Bowl LIV?
Super Bowl LIV will take place on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020.
What time does the game start?
Kickoff from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens is slated for 6:30 p.m. ET.
Who is in Super Bowl LIV?
That two teams playing in the Super Bowl are the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. When it comes to the NFL’s biggest game, one team is a familiar face in the Super Bowl and the other one hasn’t been to the game in five decades.
The familiar face is the 49ers, who will be playing in the Super Bowl for the seventh time in franchise history. In their six previous games, San Francisco has gone 5-1. If the 49ers were to beat the Chiefs, they would tie the Steelers and Patriots for most Super Bowl wins in NFL history. The fact that the game is being played in Miami could mean good things for the 49ers, who are 2-0 when playing the Super Bowl in South Florida. Before this year, the 49ers won Super Bowl XXIII and Super Bowl XXIX in Miami.
As for the Chiefs, they’re returning for to the Super Bowl for the third time, but there’s a good chance that half their fan base wasn’t even alive for their most recent appearance, and that’s because it took place 50 years ago. Back in January 1970, the Chiefs knocked off the Vikings 23-7 in Super Bowl IV. The Chiefs also made it to Super Bowl I, where they got stomped by the Packers 35-10.
