 the NFL is limiting capacity to 22,000, with 7,500 free tickets reserved for vaccinated health care professionals. It has not been determined exactly how the remaining 14,500 tickets will be divided up among the Buccaneers, Chiefs, non-participating teams and corporate sponsors,

There’s a big buzz out there about the history making Tampa Bay Buccaneers making it to the 2021 Super Bowl, that happens to be held in…Tampa.

For the first time in the 55 years of the Super Bowl, the Hosting team has won a spot in the big game. It’s more magical, the Buccaneers will play the game on their home field. The fact that the G.O.A.T. Tom Brady led “Tompa Bay” to this historic game, his 10th Super Bowl appearance Makes it all the more magical..

So there are two sides to the Tampa home field advantage.

Their training facility is across the stadium from the stadium. “We can dream about looking across the street for two weeks,” coach Bruce Arians said.

Bucs players can sleep in their own beds, keep their normal routine, and prep in their own facility, and their normal locker room.

Because of COVID-19, the Chiefs will remain in Kansas City until the day before the big game. Normal, they would be in town the week before.

So many events wits the teams being bussed all over the city will not happen. Instead of a week, it will be two days.

Another good thing, is that because only one team’s fans have to travel, there will be less people coming into town, taking flights to get there. Also, there will be limited attendance due to precautions, which works out for the better.

Unfortunately, because of that same reason, it means less hotel rooms booked, less patronage to events, restaurants, and clubs, and less revenue.
