Tampa Is Ready for the Super Bowl

Tampa is hosting its fifth Super Bowl, but this one is far different from the others. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, tickets for Sunday’s game are limited to a third of the capacity of Raymond James Stadium. There will be no tailgating. While the usual fan festival and other side attractions are happening, masks and social distancing are required. Most player appearances have been remote. But the presence of the home team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has lifted local spirits.
