Super Bowl LVIII kicks off Sunday, which means it's almost game day for fans everywhere — whether they're watching for the football, the Usher concert or to see fits by Taylor Swift and Kristin Juszczyk.

Why it matters: The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events in the world, and this year Americans are expected to spend a record $17.3 billion on the event, the National Retail Federation says.

Driving the news: Fans in California are paying $11,818 on average for tickets to the Super Bowl, according to the most recent data from SeatGeek.

  • The national average price is $9,058.
  • The current "get-in" price is $8,198.
  • The most expensive ticket is $50,227.

State of play: California, home of the San Francisco 49ers, accounts for 27% of resale tickets purchased.

  • The Kansas City Chiefs' home state of Missouri didn't make the top five, but neighboring Kansas did with 7% of sales.

Reality check: For those not making the five-hour drive to Vegas, plenty of San Diego bars will show the game. But go early; they'll be packed.

For 49ers fans: Moonshine Beach in Pacific Beach, loyal to the Niner gang, will have the big screen and food-and-drink specials, plus an after-party for "The Faithful."

For Chiefs fans: Home & Away in Old Town is the official local spot for Chiefs Kingdom, with a big screen on the outdoor patio.

For the rest of us: Barleymash in Gaslamp and Draft Belmont Park in Mission Beach are hosting watch parties with dozens of TVs and no team affiliations.

  • Draft Republic is another spacious sports bar, with locations in Carlsbad and San Marcos.

How to watch at home: If you're hosting a party or watching from your couch, CBS and Nickelodeon will air the Super Bowl at 3:30pm.
