If you want to catch the Super Bowl in Tampa, there are a few options for watching it. One option is the SoFi Stadium. This venue will feature laser light displays and pyrotechnics. It will be decked out in the colors of NFL teams. The Buccaneers and Chiefs flags will be prominently displayed.
Amid construction work, the NFL has finally decided to play the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium in Tampa. Despite its name, this stadium is technically an outdoor venue, thanks to a canopy that surrounds the entire field. This ensures that the interior temperature stays relatively consistent. However, this stadium can get extremely hot where the turf is level with the ground. Chargers beat writer Daniel Popper shares his impressions about the stadium.
Tampa will host the Super Bowl 2021, featuring the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. The game was initially scheduled to air at 4:25 p.m. ET but has now been flexed to a 7:00 p.m. ET slot so that fans can catch it on Sunday Night Football. It will also be broadcast live on NBC, Peacock, and Peacock with Football Night in America.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl LVI last season on their home field, beating the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9. The Buccaneers are expected to win Super Bowl 50, but they will have to pay for it for the second time in six years. They will be crowned the NFL’s first home-field Super Bowl champions if they win. The Rams are also the favorite to win the game, with a 3.5-point spread.
The Rams would love to see their team in the Super Bowl at home. However, the team has to get past the NFC playoffs, and an NFL relocation decision before the game is played there. In the meantime, they can play at SoFi Stadium instead. This would be a great honor for the team.
This is not the best stadium for fans who are prone to heatstroke. The current record for a Super Bowl is 82 degrees Fahrenheit. SoFi Stadium isn’t an indoor stadium, but the roof will keep fans and players safe. However, you won’t see the big game under a dome – a disadvantage of outdoor stadiums.
Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, will host the Super Bowl on Feb. 7, 2021. The stadium, also known as “Ray Jay,” can accommodate up to 75,000 people during special events. However, COVID-19 restrictions will prevent it from being filled. The stadium is also the home of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, FBS’ South Florida Bulls, and XFL’s Tampa Bay Vipers.
