You may be looking at your television screen later on during the 2021 Super Bowl and wondering…how many people are allowed in Raymond James Stadium right now?
The Big Game – set to air later live from Tampa Bay, Florida tonight featuring the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs – would usually see a packed stadium full of fans and friends and family of players, coaches, and other NFL personnel.
However, this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the concern for becoming a super spreader event, the stadium’s capacity has been greatly reduced. Normally, Raymond James Stadium can hold 65,890 fans, the New York Times reports.

This year, the NFL is allowing 22,000 fans to watch live from the stadium, which is about 30% of the normal capacity.
7,500 of those seats were given for free to health care workers, who have all been vaccinated against Coronavirus. The NFL sold 14,500 tickets via a lottery. Those tickets will not require fans to be vaccinated.
