Our favorite game has survived the odds of the pandemic and is set to return this February in Florida. The Chiefs and Buccaneers will try their luck, so get your popcorn and drinks ready for the show time.
The excitement for the Super Bowl certainly outweighs the game itself. While there were speculations whether or not the game will happen this year, the NFL has decided to surprise us with a digital streaming.
The majority of the Super Bowl week events have been cancelled, but we’re glad that the main event is happening. Let’s have a look at everything we know about the Super Bowl LV or 55, including the venue, performers and where to stream the match.
Origin Of the Name “Super Bowl”
The origin of the Super Bowl was brought about after the National Football League was merged with the American Football League in 1966. For some time, the name was associated with the famous AFL-NFL Championship.
Another version comes from Lamar Hunt, who owned the Chiefs. He came up with the name “Super Bowl” as his children were fond of Super Ball, which was a fun toy back then. However, the words “bowl” and “ball” were confused because of their sounds.
When Will Super Bowl Happen
The Super Bowl LV game will be happening on February 7, 2021 at 6:30 PM Eastern Time. While the Super Bowl LIV took place in Miami, this year’s game will take place in Florida at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic and the majority of the world going through the second wave, the magnificent game will be available for digital streaming. We can watch the game on CBS, and a free streaming will happen simultaneously on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports App.
Which Teams Are Participating
The teams who have made it to the finals are none other than Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And for the first time in the NFL history, a team will be playing the Super Bowl in its home stadium, which makes the game all the more fun.
The Buccaneers are likely to be led by none other than Tom Brady, who has a stellar career spanning over two decades. The Chiefs, led by Coach Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes, also have their eyes set on winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Where To Get The Tickets
The tickets will be available on the official NFL website, and are being offered in the form of exciting packages. The lowest package starts at $5,500 for one person. In case you do feel like attending the game in person, the Raymond James Stadium will have a seating capacity of 25%.
However, if you can’t spare enough funds, you can catch the Super Bowl game on TV, your smartphone and even online. That’s pretty much what we will be doing, so don’t despair because your home big screen can also promise you live-action.
Who Will Be Performing
The Weeknd will take the main stage for the magnificent Pepsi’ half-time show. The Blinding Lights star shared that he is thrilled to perform at the grand game. He will be joined by the two-time Grammy-winner H.E.R., who will perform her rendition of “America the Beautiful.”
The country artist Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will come together to give an iconic performance of the national anthem. It will be the first time that the national anthem will be performed by a country singer since 2017.
There has also been news of Miley Cyrus performing the NFL TikTok Tailgate pregame show. The Super Bowl LV this year will be a star-studded event for sure, and we can’t wait to catch the game live.
