Tampa readies for Super Bowl LV fans – albeit fewer of them – amid the pandemic

Although many major events have been canceled or delayed due to COVID-19, Super Bowl LV will take place this year in Tampa, Florida, on Feb. 7 inside Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

As the Bucs take on the Kansas City Chiefs, there will be limits on stadium attendance and adjustments to celebratory events taking place in town.

“Tampa Bay is working hand in glove with the host committee, NFL and local officials to ensure the Super Bowl operates as safely as possible,” said Santiago Corrada, CEO of Visit Tampa Bay. “Various events connected to the Super Bowl have been canceled with the exception of the popular fan experience, the NFL Super Bowl Experience, which will take place at large outdoor venues in downtown Tampa with timed, reservation-based ticket entry and limited capacities.”
