What Time Does Super Bowl 59 Start?

Last Updated: Feb 15, 2024

The Super Bowl is Christmas for sports bettors.

The 58th annual big game was one for the ages, with the Kansas City Chiefs edging the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime in the first Super Bowl ever in Las Vegas.

But after the NFL went to Sin City, Super Bowl 59 will be a return to the league’s most popular Super Bowl venue. New Orleans will host the Super Bowl for the 11th time, and the Caesars Superdome will be the Super Bowl venue for the eighth time.

The Big Easy will host the Big Game on Feb. 9, 2025, and FOX will air the game.

Here’s a more thorough glimpse at all the details and info for the big game.

What Time Does The Super Bowl Start?

The official Super Bowl website always lists the start time at about 6:30 ET, but those who have watched one or two in the past know the game won’t actually kick off until closer to 6:45.

FOX, which most recently aired Super Bowl 57 between the Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, will be the rightsholder for the 59th annual big game. Kevin Burkhardt should be the play-by-play broadcaster and could be flanked by seven-time Super Bowl champ Tom Brady, who expects to be part of the broadcast team in 2024.

Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi expect to be the sideline reporters, and the pregame show is almost certain to start at around noon ET.

Who Is Playing in Super Bowl 59?

If you know, you’ll be very, very rich in February 2025.

The two-time reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs are the favorites from the AFC, and the 49ers are favored to win it all.

But the odds of the Chiefs winning it all again are long. No team has ever three-peated or even had the chance to win three straight Super Bowls, and only three teams — the 2016-18 Patriots, 1990-93 Bills, and 1970-72 Miami Dolphins — have even played in three straight Super Bowls.

Where Is the Super Bowl 59 Location?

Caesars Superdome, the site of more Super Bowls than any other location, will get another chance to host the Big Game in 2025.

New Orleans is second to only Miami in Super Bowls hosted, though Tulane Stadium hosted the first three Super Bowls in the Big Easy. Super Bowls IV, VI, and IX were played on Tulane’s campus before the remaining seven were played at the Superdome.

The New England Patriots have played in an NFL-high three Super Bowls at the Superdome. The 49ers and the Denver Broncos have twice played in the game there.

Who Is Playing the Super Bowl 59 Halftime Show?

Good question! After Usher wowed the crowd in Las Vegas and beyond with a star-studded halftime performance, the NFL will have big shoes to fill in New Orleans.

The halftime show commences after the game’s second quarter, which means it will likely start between 8 and 8:30 p.m. ET. Pepsi relinquished its sponsorship of the halftime show in 2022, which means the show will be brought to viewers by Apple Music for the second straight year.
