Popcorn at the ready, it that time of the year again when two teams lock horns for American Football's biggest prize in the NFL Super Bowl. This year will see the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers against each other in Las Vegas.

The Chiefs - who are defending champions - are seeking their third Super Bowl crown in four years. They defeated the 49ers back in 2020 to lift the Vince Lombardi trophy. What will happen this year?

The other event that draws the watching fans is the half-time entertainment, with a bumper musical extravaganza promised in Vegas.

There will be thousands of fans staying up late to watch the drama unfold back in the UK. Here is everything you need to know.

When and where is the Super Bowl?

This year's game is being played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday, February 11. The game will kick-off at 11.30pm UK time and roll into the early hours of Sunday morning. It is usually quite a long night.

Who is playing in the Super Bowl?

Last season's champions Kansas City Chiefs defend their title against the San Francisco 49ers, in what is a repeat of the 2020 final which the Chiefs won 31-20.

Everyone will be watching Taylor Swift's boyfriend Travis Kelce who is not stranger to headlines himself. Last year the Kansas City Chief player faced his brother Jason's team The Philadelphia Eagles.

In the 12 months since then, the brothers have had their own Amazon Prime documentary, they've both appeared on Saturday Night Live and their New Heights podcast, already growing in popularity, exploded thanks to the Taylor Swift involvement - ending 2023 as the sixth biggest podcast in the US.

What about this year's half-time show?

This year's headliner is American R&B star Usher. He previously appeared as a guest during the Black Eyed Peas' performance at Super Bowl XLV. He has promised a 15-minute show, slightly longer than the normal 13-minute halftime slot.

The singer also revealed he will share the Super Bowl stage with special guests he has previously collaborated with.

The eight-time Grammy-winner, who announced that he will roller skate during the show, also revealed that a camera crew has been following him to document the experience.

Asked if there were any people he would like as potential guest performers, he said: "You know, there's been these fantasy lists that have been going out and people trying to figure out what song I'm going to perform first, middle, last - who's going to come on the stage with me. What I did is, I was very mindful of my past, celebrating my present, which is here in Las Vegas, and thinking about where we're headed in the future."

Country Music Hall of Famer Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem, while Post Malone will join McEntire during the pre-game entertainment. He will sing 'America the Beautiful', part of a three-song set that has opened the Super Bowl since 2021.

Andra Day will sing 'Lift Every Voice and Sing', and this year's Super Bowl DJ is DJ Kaskade who has stepped in for Tiesto who had to withdraw due to family reasons.
