Why does the Super Bowl start so late? Exploring the reasons for the timing of the NFL’s blockbuster event

Super Bowl LVIII will pit the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers. The Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes, will appear in their fourth Super Bowl in five years as defending champions. Brock Purdy and the 49ers, on the other hand, were eliminated from the NFC Championship Game last season but advanced to the Super Bowl this year.

This is a rematch of the Super Bowl Super Bowl LV, which took place three years ago in Miami. The Chiefs won that game 31-20, and the 49ers will be motivated to avenge that loss this time around.

Many people often wonder why the Super Bowl starts so late. The answer is quite simple. It starts a little late to ensure that all four major time zones in the United States of America have a proper opportunity to watch the blockbuster event.

This year’s Super Bowl is expected to attract more than 100 million viewers and, as it takes place in the United States, the league is ensuring the moment is suitable for all its fans.

Super Bowl Timings in the United States of America:

  1. 6:30 p.m. ET
  2. 5:30 p.m. CT
  3. 4:30 p.m. MT
  4. 3:30 p.m. (Pacific Time)

However, this presents a disadvantage for international fans because in their country the Super Bowl may start at midnight or early Monday morning, depending on where they live.

In the UK, the Super Bowl will start at 11:30 p.m. In the United Arab Emirates, Japan and Australia, it will start at 3:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. respectively.

Kansas City Chiefs aim to defend Super Bowl title

The Kansas City Chiefs hope to become the first team since 2005 to defend their Super Bowl title. The New England Patriots were the last NFL team to successfully defend their title, defeating the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX, respectively.

Patrick Mahomes is already considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time, and a win today would arguably cement his place as one of the two best quarterbacks in league history, behind Tom Brady.

Even though the 49ers are the favorites to win tonight, the Chiefs are in better shape and have a better quarterback.
