For the first time in NFL history, a Super Bowl finalist will be staging the showpiece event. The Bucs will hold the game at their home stadium, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida, and will be going head-to-head with the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.

The Super Bowl matches with the highest attendance

Only 22,000 fans will be in attendance at this year’s Super Bowl due to the coronavirus pandemic, with 7,500 of those being health workers, as a sign of gratitude for the ongoing work they have carried out during the pandemic.

But which Super Bowl events of years gone by have had the highest attendance?

Super Bowl XIV (1980) had the highest attendance of all time, with a reported 103,985 attendees visiting the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Los Angeles Rams.

This was closely followed by Super Bowl XVII (1983) with 103,667 attendees, and Super Bowl XI (1977) with 103,438, both of which were also held in the Rose Bowl, California.
