The Chiefs will be up in Davie using the Miami Dolphins practice facility.
Both teams arrived in Miami Sunday and will spend the week at their respective facilities.
For Kansas City, they will be playing in their third Super Bowl and their first since Super Bowl IV in 1970, where they beat Minnesota Vikings 23-7.
The 49ers, a franchise that is 5-1 in Super Bowl matchups, last appeared in the Big Game in 2013, where they fell to former Miami Hurricanes Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and the Baltimore Ravens 34-31 in New Orleans.
They haven't won it all since defeating the San Diego Chargers 49-26 in 1995 in Joe Robbie Stadium, now known as Hard Rock Stadium, where they will be looking for their first Super Bowl victory in 25 years.
The facility is getting a little bit of a makeover this week. #SBLIV pic.twitter.com/gX3G9IeCjc— Canes Football (@CanesFootball) January 27, 2020
