  • NFL's first Super Bowl was held on January 15th, 1967, and the first two were played precisely in Tampa Florida.
  • The teams that have won the most of this championship are The New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers with 6 trophies each.

It is very likely that this record will be broken this year since the event will be watched mostly from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Airing on CBS, The Super Bowl LV (55) will take place on the night of Sunday, February 7th, and they are already finalizing the last details to receive the lucky attendees at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Florida.

With this, it is the fifth time that this stadium serves as the field for the expected game of the NFL.

As a curious fact, this will be the first time in history that a team will have the benefit of playing at home.

In 2020, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez performed at the halftime show.

The Tampa Bay and Buccaneers will face the Kansas City Chiefs in a historic final.

Never before has a Super Bowl been played in the midst of a global pandemic.

That is why the game will have strict health protocols to ensure that the event does not become a massive spreader of the disease caused by the coronavirus.

For this task, a 6ft distance between the attendees will be required as well as the mandatory use of a face mask at all times.

At the same time, there will be hand sanitizer stations available throughout the Raymond James Stadium.

To ensure a controlled public influence in the city of Tampa, $150 million have been invested in improvements to both the airport and the stadium.

This year for the first time, the Tailgate will be carried out through the TikTok platform by singer Miley Cyrus, who will give a 45-minute concert with the attendance of 7,500 health workers, previously vaccinated.

Miley Cyrus and The Weeknd will perform live on Feb. 7th.

The Weeknd will be in charge of the halftime show.

The 30-year-old Canadian singer has invested $7 million out of his own pocket to give a never-before-seen stage performance.

Both live shows promise to be unforgettable.

On January 19th, 2021, the National Football League announced that the national anthem will be performed by country singer Eric Church and R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan prior to the big game.

State authorities have urged citizens to enjoy the Super Bowl LV at home, in small family gatherings, and try to reduce mobility as much as possible to avoid spreading the disease.

Here we have a curious fact: Did you know that the Super Bowl is the second-largest event of food consumption in our country?

Well yes, just behind Thanksgiving Day.

What are your plans for February 7th?
