Follow DailyMail.com’s live blog for the latest score and updates from Super Bowl LVIII as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

Andra Day takes to the stage

Americann R&B and soul singer Andra Day is kicking off the anthems.

She takes to the stage to perform Lift Every Voice and Sing.

Taylor Swift is showing her support for boyfriend Travis Kelce with an ’87’ necklace as she headed to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas on Sunday.

The pop star donned a gold pendant necklace bearing his jersey number as she made her way into the Allegiant Stadium alongside her entourage.

The jewelry costs quite the pretty penny – the Stephanie Gottlieb necklace costs a whooping $4,250.

No Vegas? No problem!

Not everyone can be in Las Vegas tonight.

Chiefs fans have turned out in their thousands back home in Kansas City to watch the game.

They’ll be hoping for a wild night later on… and a celebratory parade with their team in the coming days of course.

It’s almost kickoff time everybody

Just 24 mintues to go until Super Bowl LVIII officially begins.

Before that we’ve got the usual pre-game necesities to go through, including the singing of the national anthem.

Olivia Culpo dons a custom-made all-black Christian McCaffrey jacket

Model Olivia Culpo was seen wearing a custom made black coat with the name and number of her fiance, Christian McCaffrey, on the back in the run up to the Super Bowl.

Culpo was turning heads as she arrived at Allegiant Stadium off the Las Vegas strip wearing an all-black outfit that was accessorized with gold jewelry.

In addition to a black dress, Culpo donned the jacket and a diamond necklace with McCaffrey’s number 23 on it.

Families are on the sideline

Players have taken some time out of their warmups to greet their loved ones on the sideline.

Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany posed with their children and Brock Purdy took a moment to kiss his fiancee Jenna Brandt.

Usher is ready to perform

Speaking of long waits, our halftime entertainment is here everyone.

Usher has been filmed walking through the bowels of the stadium with a vast entourage as he gets ready to perform.

Patrick Mahomes is ready to go

With just under an hour until kickoff, Patrick Mahomes has walked back down the tunnel.

He looks in the zone and ready for the game.

This final hour must feel like an eternity to the players as they face a pain-staking wait.

Kelce addressed the team along with head coach Andy Reid, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and defensive tackle Chris Jones.

But it was Travis’ speech which made the biggest impact, moving Chiefs stars to tears as they eye a third Super Bowl in five years this weekend.

One coach is even quoted as saying: ‘Not even close. The best talk/speech I’ve ever heard.’

The Chiefs have officially designated wide receiver Kadarius Toney as inactive for the Super Bowl.

Toney has not played since Week 15 against the Patriots on December 17, when he tipped a pass directly into the hands of a New England defender.

Observations from warms up so far

Alex Raskin at Allegiant Stadium: Hard to say which team has the advantage, given their similar color schemes. But Patrick Mahomes is easily the most popular jersey here.

Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker was very impressive in pregame warmups, hitting from a distance of 70 yards.

Chiefs are out to warm up

The Chiefs are greeted by a huge roar as they sprint out onto the field.

Scott Swift, the father of Taylor Swift, has been a longtime Philadelphia Eagles fan and a west Pennsylvania native. But he seems to have left all his green behind for Chiefs red.

Swift was seen decked out head-to-toe in Chiefs gear before the big game as he stood next to his famous daughter.

Cameras caught Scott wearing a Chiefs hat, a KC jacket and a team t-shirt hours before the game got underway.

Is America fed up of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce hype yet? And who will win the Super Bowl? DailyMail.com speaks to fans on the ground in Vegas and New Yorkers to find out

Earlier this week we spoke to NFL fans both in Times Square and Las Vegas to gaugh their opinions on two things:

1) Who will win?

2) Are they tired of Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce yet?

Here’s what they said…

The atmosphere is building

Daniel Matthews at Allegiant Stadium: The atmosphere is starting to build inside Allegiant Stadium. Kaskade has just started a DJ set from above one of the end zones as more and more fans stream towards their seats. Most of the suites remain empty, however. All eyes are only on one of course.

How do you stop Patrick Mahomes?

If the Chiefs are going to have any chance of success tonight then they’re going to have to stop Patrick Mahomes. Simple as that.

Here’s Las Vegas Raiders defensive star Maxx Crosby, who plays against Mahomes twice a season, on how to shut down the Chiefs quarterback.

It’s not just about Taylor tonight

We’ve got some more WAGs at Allegiant Stadium now.

Kristin Juszczyk has been filmed walking around the stadium in her custom jacket.

Remember, she’s the designer who made the custom jackets worn by Taylor Swift and Brittany Mahomes earlier in the season.

Usher has turned to music legend Janet Jackson for inspiration while putting together his highly-anticipated set for the halftime show,

according to insiders, who claim the pair have been in ‘regular contact.’

The OMG singer, 45, has reportedly been studying the pop powerhouse, 57, during rehearsals as he gears up to entertain millions of fans and spectators at the Allegiant Stadium on Sunday night.

Though Usher has not worked with Janet in recent years, longtime fans of the singer will remember that the star was invited along to open for Janet’s Velvet Rope Tour in 1998 – when he was making waves with his second album, My Way.

Joe Biden isn’t doing the traditional presidential pre-Super Bowl interview – with his team insisting this is to allow viewers to focus on football instead of ‘hearing from a politician.’

Despite this, the president released a message on X where he slammed ‘shrinkflation’ in popular snack foods in a pessimistic Super Bowl Sunday message.

‘If you’re anything like me, you like to be surrounded by a snack or two while watching the big game,’ Biden said in a 48-second video that appeared to be shot in the White House

family theater before adding: ‘When buying snacks for the game, you might have noticed one thing – portion sizes are smaller… they’re still charging just as much.’

CMC is a picture of calm

Christian McCaffrey looks so chilled and relaxed as he comes out to warm up.

The running back, the 49ers’ biggest offensive threat, shut his eyes and took a minute to himself.

Players are out on the field

We are less than two hours until kickoff and the players are now out on the field and warming up.

One lucky fan has already had their day made after Travis Kelce threw his gloves to them as he walked back up the tunnel.

She’s barely been there five minutes but the Kelces and Swifts are already hitting it off in their suites.

Footage showed her hugging Travis’ brother Jason before the singer was seen chatting with his wife Kylie and her dad Scott.

Well that didn’t take her long!

Taylor Swift has arrived at Allegiant Stadium with a couple of hours to go unitl kickoff – perfect timing!

Remember, she’s due to be sat in a suite with her family and the Kelces.

Travis may be in the bowels of Allegiant Stadium already but his brother, Jason, is still out and about in Vegas soaking up the pre-game atmosphere.

He’s gone for a bold gameday fit, too.

Jason is wearing red and yellow dungarees – alongside another ‘Big Yeti’ t-shirt – as he gears up to cheer his brother Travis on for the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

Minutes after we got confirmation that Taylor Swift is in Las Vegas, her boyfriend has strolled into Allegiant Stadium just down the road.

She’s here folks!

Taylor Swift has landed in Las Vegas to begin her Super Bowl festivities, after hot-footing it from her Eras Tour show in Tokyo – all in the name of boyfriend Travis Kelce.

The pop superstar touched down at Harry Reid Airport in Vegas a few minutes before 4pm EST – 1pm local time – and two-and-a-half hours before the game begins.

Welcome to the Super Bowl!

The 2024 Super Bowl or Super Bowl LVIII will be contested by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers, led by Mr. Irrelevant Brock Purdy.

The game will kick off at 6:30pm ET, 3:30pm PT and 11:30pm UK time, and there will be three anthems performed before kick-off.

Rap sensation Post Malone will perform America the Beautiful, Andra Day will sing Lift Every Voice and Sing and Reba McEntire will sing the American National Anthem.

R&B icon Usher is set to perform the Super Bowl half-time show, taking up the duties from Rihanna at last year’s event. While he will not be paid for the performance, Usher is expected to release a new album shortly.

And for the Swifties tuning it, the pop phenomenon Taylor Swift

be attendance for the show piece event.

Andy Reid gives his pre-game thoughts

Speaking to CBS, the Chiefs coach said: ‘We’ve got to make sure we play well up front on both sides of the ball.

‘Defense has been doing a great job and they’ll need to do that again. This is a very good offense and our own offense is going to have to produce. It’s going to be one hell of a competition.’

Asked what his final words to his Chiefs team will be, Reid replied: ‘Just be yourselves and go play.’

49ers star Kyle Juszczyk has rolled up wearing a custom-made jacket incorporating the names of several teammates ahead of tonight’s game.

His wife, Kristin Juszczyk, has designed jackets for a number of WAGs across the course of the NFL season – most notably Taylor Swift for the first Chiefs playoff game against the Dolphins earlier this month.

But now, with Swift a rival WAG for today’s game, she appears to have gone a level up for her husband on the biggest stage of them all.

Super Bowl ticket prices continue to soar

Anyone on the ground in Las Vegas hoping to score a last-minute ticket that’s not extortionately priced will be bitterly disappointed.

Yahoo’s NFL reporter say the cheapest seat is now $9,000 dollars… and it’s not exactly the greatest seat in the house, either.

Patrick Mahomes is on the field

The Chiefs quarterback likes to get on the field nice and early and soak up the atmosphere as part of his pre-match routine.

There’s still just over three hours to go until kickoff but he’s already jogging around and sitting on the sideline.

Before last month’s win over the Miami Dolphins, he braved freezing conditions to sit on the bench and watch another NFL playoff game on the big screen.

Taylor Swift is finally set to complete her long journey to the Super Bowl this afternoon after boarding a flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

Swift touched down in California on Saturday after wrapping up her final Eras Tour concert in Tokyo and making the 5,500-mile trip across the globe to watch Travis Kelce and the Chiefs player the 49ers.

The singer and songwriter likely chose to make a pit stop in LA, where she owns a property, as NFL rules prevented her from spending the night with Kelce on the eve of the big game.

And just hours before her man takes to the field at Allegiant Stadium, Swift was seen boarding her flight from Burbank, Los Angeles County, over to Vegas for the final leg of her long journey to the Super Bowl.

Breaking: Taylor Swift is on her way to the Super Bowl

DailyMail.com understands that the singer has boarded her private plane in Burbank and is heading to Las Vegas.

The flight should take her around an hour so she’ll touch down in the desert with plenty of time before kickoff.

We’ll bring you more as we get it.

Donald Trump has taken aim at Taylor Swift – saying that she is being ‘disloyal’ to the man who made her so much money, while branding Travis Kelce a ‘liberal.’

The Republican hopeful, 77, said that it was his lawmaking that allowed popstar Taylor to propel to stratospheric fame and success – not ‘crooked’ Joe Biden.

Trump said there’s ‘no way’ she can endorse Democrat Biden ahead of the election.

Swift, while steering clear from mainstream politics, vowed to kick Trump out of the White House during the last election – and announced she voted Democrat.

Kim Kardashian and new boyfriend, Odell Beckham Jr. were spotted together for the first time since going exclusive with their budding romance while at The Wynn in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Relationship speculation began to arise when the mother-of-four and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver were first publicly linked back in September 2023.

A source told DailyMail.com on Friday, ‘Kim has been romantically involved with Odell since last summer and thought she had managed to keep it under wraps. She is not seeing anyone else right now – at least not that her close friends know of.’

According to the insider, both Kardashian and Beckham Jr. – who are rumored to attend the Super Bowl together – made the decision to remain private to prevent rumors that the SKIMS founder was a ‘homewrecker.’

Patrick Mahomes arrives at Allegiant Stadium

Can Patrick Mahomes win his third Super Bowl tonight?

We’re just hours away from finding out and he’s arrived at Allegiant Stadium looking ready for business.

Breaking: Travis Kelce gets Super Bowl haircut

Travis Kelce’s barber has taken to Instagram to show how he got the tight end ready for the game.

Patrick Regan – known as patty_cuts – regularly does Kelce’s hair before games and said although they were ‘under time pressure’, he managed to get his client ready.

We have some players in the building, folks.

Christian McCaffrey looked sharp in a black suit but George Kittle looked more relaxed as he strolled into Allegiant Stadium.

It seems as though the 49ers are arriving at different times with Fred Warner just shown on TV leaving the team hotel.

George Kittle has arrived

Much of the pre-game talk has focused around one tight end in particular.

But the other is an exceptional player and will be a worry for the Chiefs defense tonight.

49ers star George Kittle looked full of confidence as he strolled into the stadium moments ago.

Worth a go I suppose

Daniel Matthews in Las Vegas: There are still more than four hours until kickoff but already fans are piling out of the Mandalay Bay casino, down on to the walkway up to Allegiant stadium.

Some hopeful supporters are begging for spare tickets…

Here come the Chiefs

CBS reporters have just revealed on air that Patrick Mahomes was on the first Chiefs bus out of their hotel that’s heading to Allegiant Stadium.

The 49ers players are also on their way after coach Shanahan got there nice and early this afternoon.

Fans are on the move

My colleague Alex Raskin is soaking up the atmosphere on the iconic Las Vegas strip and fans are beginning to make their way towards Allegiant Stadium.

Reports on the ground have suggested 49ers fans are seriously outnumbering their Chiefs rivals in the city, which makes sense geographically.

The NFL goes pitch side

Imagine how loud the side line is going to be come kickoff time…

Breaking: Early boost for the Chiefs

The numbers behind the Super Bowl

Everything is expensive when it comes to the Super Bowl.

Tickets, commercials, travel… nothing else can compare to the money being spent around today’s game.

Sports business expert Joe Pompliano lifted the lid on the astonishing costs behind Super Bowl LVIII.

It’s finally here. After a chaotic week of build up in Las Vegas the stage is set for Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium.

Finally, the Chiefs and 49ers are ready to go to battle in the NFL’s biggest game.

Vegas has been awash with big-spending celebrities, hundreds of thousands of fans and football festivities all week but we are now just hours away from kickoff.

It emerged earlier on Sunday that Uber Eats was pressured to make a last-minute change to its Super Bowl commercial.

The buzzy commerical, starring Friends actors David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston, was released February 6.

But complaints quickly surfaced about a quick scene of a man with a peanut allergy eating peanut butter.

As a result, Uber Eats has agreed to cut the roughly three-second scene, which occurs about 35 seconds into the 60-second commercial.

Breaking: We have our first arrivals

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan is known for his cerebal methods and intense preparation.

He’s arrived at Allegiant Stadium with just under five and a half hours to kickoff.

The calm before the storm!

We have our first pictures from inside Allegiant Stadium. It may be quiet now but the eyes of the world will be upon it in just a few hours.

It’s home to the Las Vegas Raiders and, interestingly, because they insist on playing on grass, even in a dome, the field spends most of the time outside in sunlight and is rolled in on a tray for games.

Chief Sports Writer Oliver Holt is part of our team in Las Vegas for the game.

Here’s his big-game preview on how Las Vegas and the Super Bowl are a match made in heaven.

Donna Kelce was spotted grabbing a quick Starbucks just hours before watching son Travis play and even gave DailyMail.com her prediction.

Donna has been in Sin City for the past few days ahead of the big game.

She’s expected to sit with Taylor Swift, the singer’s family, ex-husband Ed and both Jason and his wife Kylie at Allegiant Stadium later on.

But how does she think the game is going to go down?

Jason Kelce will be hoping his brother can win the big one later tonight but he was ecstatic on the casino floor overnight, winning big and celebrating with wife Kylie.

DailyMail.com has exclusive footage of the Philadelphia Eagles center celebrating wildly with his fellow gamblers.

Inside the Chiefs camp

What goes on inside a team’s hotel on the night before the Super Bowl?

Well, according to NFL reporter Albert Breer, Chiefs coach Andy Reid had Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Chris Jones address the team…

Now, before we get into the football, it’s probably best to clarify where in the world Taylor Swift is.

The answer: Los Angeles.

The songstress touched down in LA late on Saturday night following an eight-hour flight from Tokyo, arriving to a media and fan frenzy and high police presence at the airport.

After getting some much needed rest, she’s now expected to fly from LA to Vegas in the coming hours so she’s there in plenty of time for kickoff.

The Super Bowl is here!

Good afternoon and welcome to DailyMail.com’s live coverage of Super Bowl LVIII from Las Vegas.

We are just a little over six hours from kickoff as the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers prepare to battle for the NFL’s biggest prize.

Stick with us throughout the evening as we bring you everything you need to know from Vegas as it happens.
