The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to win their second consecutive Super Bowl, but first they have to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneer' living legend, Tom Brady.
Super Bowl LV is all set to be played at the Raymond James Stadium between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Due to the coronavirus pandemic there will be limited-in-person capacity to what is the most anticipated game of the NFL season and ticket prices have been going through the roof.

The league also confirmed that 7,500 vaccinated health care workers would be able to attend the game for free as a thank you for their work throughout the coronavirus pandemic. At first, the NFL was offering four ticket packages for Super Bowl LV which included the Touchdown Club ($6,750), 55 Live ($8,000), Champions ($10,000) and On The Fifty (no price was listed).
"Our local healthcare workers have worked around the clock to ensure the health and safety of our community and I cannot think of a better way to honor them than with the eyes of the world on our hometown for Super Bowl LV," said Jane Castor, the mayor for the City of Tampa.
"Our country has endured so much over the last year and we can't lose sight of those who worked day in and day out to keep us safe. Thank you to the NFL for helping make this happen," she added.
In response, John Couris, President and CEO of Tampa General Hospital said:
"We applaud the NFL for honoring health care workers and promoting vaccine acceptance around Super Bowl LV. We are pleased to support their planning efforts to create a safe and enjoyable event for all attendees, and we look forward to a successful Super Bowl in Tampa Bay."
