How to watch 2020 Super Bowl Chiefs vs 49ers live and free
Kansas City Chiefs take on San Francisco 49ers in the NFL's Super Bowl LIV. This year it's being held at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium and here's how to watch live.
The Chiefs have been steadily building towards this moment under ridiculously talented quarterback Patrick Mahomes and veteran coach Andy Reid. They are seeking their first Super Bowl victory since way back in 1970 in Super Bowl IV.
The once-mighty 49ers have been undergoing a steady rebuild under their young head coach Kyle Shanahan. A fierce defence and the steady play of their quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has put them within reach of a sixth NFL title. Their 5 previous wins all came in a 13-year span between 1982 and 1995.
What time does the Super Bowl start?
This is it. San Francisco and Kansas City will square off at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium, with the game commencing at 10:30am AEDT on Monday 3 February.

History of Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers
Since their first meeting back in 1971, these teams have met 13 times. It can't get much tighter, with the 49ers holding a 7-6 advantage. Kansas City won the most recent encounter but that was way back on 23 September 2018. In fact they have only met twice since 2010.
San Francisco hold the longest winning streak in that time, taking out four straight games against the Chiefs between 1975 and 1991.
Who will win Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers?
This match-up has divided experts and casual fans alike. There is no clear-cut favourite, which is great for the neutral observer.
One thing just about everyone does agree on is that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one of, if not the most talented player in the NFL. If Kansas City are to break their long drought, he will undoubtedly need to have a big game.
But San Francisco are considered the best overall team. They have a strong balance between offence and defence. They rely heavily on their running game, particularly through running back beast Raheem Mostert.
It is such a tight call, but Kansas City have been our Super Bowl pick basically ever since their overtime defeat to the New England Patriots in last year's AFC Championship game. We won't be wavering from that now.
Super Bowl LIV squads
The Super Bowl is usually where we see the cream rise to the top. All the focus is set to be placed on quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Jimmy Garoppolo, though there are still 52 players on each side.
An Australian will also be in the mix with punter Mitch Wishnowsky hoping to get the 49ers over the line. You can see the list of Australian NFL players here, but here are the Super Bowl LIV teams.
