Schefter: NFL plans to allow limited amount of fans at Super Bowl LV in Tampa


Just like the rest of the NFL season, the Super Bowl will look a whole lot different.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, there will be limited seating set at 20% capacity for Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

Tickets will be sold in pods six feet apart while fans will be required to wear masks.

Schefter also notes that 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.

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

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