SUPER BOWL free live stream will be available in the UK this weekend, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL showpiece finale. Express Sport explains how you can live stream the Super Bowl for free to watch Tom Brady come up against Patrick Mahomes.
Super Bowl LV gets underway on Sunday night, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming face-to-face with last year’s champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. If you’re watching in the UK, you’ll be able to watch the Super Bowl for free online.
This year’s Super Bowl will feature the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the first time since 2003.
The Bucs were this season’s surprise package in the NFL, after recruiting former New England Patriot duo Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.
They finished third in the NFC South, behind the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons, but have had a stunning play-off campaign.
The Buccaneers have beaten the Washington Football Team, the New Orleans Saints, and the Green Bay Packers on their way to the Super Bowl.
Kansas City Chiefs will be competing in their second consecutive Super Bowl, after winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy last year.
Patrick Mahomes has once again helped his team in a top regular season, as well as in the post-season.
The Chiefs won 12 of their 16 regular season matches, including their final six.
In the play-offs, the Chiefs have swept aside the Cleveland Browns and the Buffalo Bills.
When is the Super Bowl in 2021?
The Super Bowl takes place on Sunday 7th February 2021, but any UK fans staying up for the whole thing will be nestled on their sofas long into Monday 8th.
The game traditionally takes place on the first Sunday of February and, for all the carnage of the last year, there’s some comfort in the fact that at least some traditions remain in tact.
What time is the Super Bowl 2021?
The kick-off time is 11:30pm in UK time and is likely to run on until approximately 3am in the small hours of Monday morning.
Buckle up for a late on on this side of the Atlantic, and get those excuses ready for your boss – even if you are working from home!

How to watch the Super Bowl in the US
In the US, Super Bowl broadcasting duties are on a three-year cycle between NBC, CBS and Fox.
This was supposed to be NBC’s year to broadcast the event, but a network trade has taken place meaning CBS are on duty this time, and you know what that means.
Analyst sensation – and former Dallas Cowboys QB – Tony Romo will be on co-commentary alongside the iconic voice of Jim Nantz. The pair previously worked together on the Super Bowl in 2019.
The 2020 Super Bowl was aired live on Fox with Joe Buck and legendary Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman on the mic.
