Super Bowl LV – 2021 – Preview
Super Bowl Sunday is here. This year happens to be the 55th edition which will be played in Tampa Bay, Florida at Raymond James stadium. The event also marks the fifth time the Super Bowl is being hosted in the Tampa area and the third being held at Raymond James Stadium.
Super Bowl LV (55th edition) will be held on Sunday, 7th February 2021. The event is set to kick off at 6.30 p.m. ET.
Once again we have Tom Brady in a Super Bowl, leading his new team Tampa Bay Buccaneers all the way to the final to face the reigning champions Kansas City Chiefs in what we expect to be a spectacular showdown.
Last Year’s Winners and Teams with most titles
Superstar Patrick Mahomes led a thrilling comeback as the Kansas City Chiefs brought a torturing 50-year wait to an end for a Super Bowl crown with a 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers last year’s edition. Their Super Bowl win was in fact Kansas City’s first NFL Championship since their triumph over the Minnesota Vikings in 1970.
The Steelers and the New England Patriots have the most Super Bowl wins to their name. Pittsburgh has won the most Super Bowls with six titles in eight appearances having won their last title in February 2009. The Patriots tied the Steelers in 2019 following their triumph over the Rams.
San Francisco, who missed out on another title last year, has five wins together with the Dallas Cowboys. The Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants have four titles each.
The Half Time Show
The Half Time show which is an acclaimed tradition during American Football games at all levels of competition, will this year be headlined by The Weeknd, who is coming off one of the snappiest records of the year in ‘After Hours’.
No doubt the Canadian R&B superstar will put on a fantastic show for viewers around the world similar to the one witnessed last year when Jennifer Lopez and Shakira completely sparkled the Super Bowl as the two Latin singers raced through 20 songs in just 12 minutes.
Super Bowl LV – 2021: Will we see a normal Super Bowl with live fans?
The NFL is willing to let some 20 percent of the stadium’s capacity be filled with fans, which would mean some 13,000 to 15,000 people watching the event live. This is obviously a significantly low number when compared to previous editions under normal circumstances when the event would be sold out way in advance, but despite all Super Bowl 2021 is still expected to be one of the most viewed.
