Report: NFL plans to allow limited number of fans at Super Bowl LV in Tampa


(RADIO.COM Sports) Just like the rest of the NFL season, the Super Bowl will look a whole lot different.

There will be limited seating set at 20% capacity for Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Tickets will be sold in pods six feet apart while fans will be required to wear masks.

If a Week 18 must be added to the end of the schedule to make up regular-season games, the bye week between the AFC and NFC Championship and Super Bowl would be eliminated and the Super Bowl would remain on Feb. 7, Schefter also reported.

Several NFL stadiums have allowed a limited number of fans into the games this season following the same pod seating format, with masks required unless eating or drinking.

The state of Florida had lifted restrictions on stadium events earlier in October, but NFL teams have continued to follow CDC guidelines and it appears the league will follow suit for the Super Bowl as coronavirus cases continue to trend upward in the United States.
