The world prepares for the strangest Super Bowl in history

This Sunday 24th, the entire planet knew the two teams that will compete in Super Bowl LV. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers 26-31 to become the National Conference champions, while the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Buffalo Bills 38-24 to become the American Conference champions. The two best teams of the season will meet at Raymond James Stadium (Tampa Bay, Florida) next Sunday, February 7.  Among the list of peculiarities that will revolve around the event is the fact that this stadium belongs to the Buccaneers, making them the first team in history to play a Super Bowl at home.

Despite all the negative implications that the coronavirus pandemic has had on the sports world (countless games with no spectators present), the Super Bowl will be an exception and will have fans in the stands, albeit in limited numbers. There will be 22,000 people in attendance, including 7,500 vaccinated health care workers who will be admitted free of charge.

The Chiefs are the defending champions (they defeated the San Francisco 49ers last year) and will be looking to become the first team since the New England Patriots to win back-to-back Super Bowls, something that hasn’t happened since 2004 and 2005. The Buccaneers will try to win their second title, the only one they won took place in 2002.

This sensational match will also bring us a clash of superstars. On one side we have the legendary Tom Brady, who at 43 will become the oldest player to play in the championship game. His first season with the Buccaneers has been a dream, he will be playing in the tenth final of his career (he was six times champion with the New England Patriots) and will try to add even more to his trophy haul. On the other side we have Patrick Mahomes, who many point to as Brady’s successor. At 25 years old, he has led the Chiefs to a new final and will be the youngest quarterback to reach two Super Bowls, he was already in the definition of the previous season and was the MVP.

But the stars will not only be on the field. This year, the halftime show will feature The Weeknd, one of the most successful pop stars, who has released hits such as “Blinding Lights” and “I Feel It Coming”.
