How long is the Super Bowl 2024?

As it’s officially named, Super Bowl 2024, or Super Bowl LVIII, is more than just a game for an NFL championship. It’s a short festival that stays in our memory until the next Bowl (or even longer). Featuring the San Francisco 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs, it is scheduled to take place at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders.

It’s pompous and grandiose, though it doesn’t last very long.

The broadcast will begin at 11:30 a.m. ET/8:30 a.m. PT on Feb. 11, and The NFL Today will air at 2 p.m. ET/11 p.m. PT. The broadcast will also be available on the CBS app and, as well as on Paramount+. Kickoff for Super Bowl LVIII is set for 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT on Sunday.

How long does a Super Bowl game last?

Although a game is technically supposed to last 60 minutes (four quarters of 15 minutes), games last much longer. Specific numbers vary; fans say it’s between two to three hours. According to, the average game lasts 3 hours and 12 minutes. However, Super Bowl halftime shows are twice as long as regular games, about 25 minutes. Usher’s show, for example, will last 15 minutes, with about another 10-15 minutes to set up the stage and other related work.

According to CBS, the Super Bowl, including halftime shows, lasts an average of three and a half hours. So, for Super Bowl 2024, we can expect 3.5 to 4 hours. That means it will end at around 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT.

The longest-ever Super Bowl game was between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens at Super Bowl XLVII, lasting 4 hours and 14 minutes.

However, power outages ensured this duration. The longest game without unforeseen events was Super Bowl XXXVIII, which featured the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers and lasted 4 hours and 5 minutes.
