We’re just a few short weeks away from the Super Bowl in Tampa. It’s going to be very different this year since we’re not out of the woods with COVID-19. There’s still no official word about how many fans will be let in to watch the game. But there is one big thing to look forward to, even if you’re not going to the game. Best of all… it’s free.
The NFL today released a mobile app called OnePass, according to the Tampa Bay Times. With it, you will be able to reserve your free ticket to check out the NFL Experience from January 29th through February 6 along the Tampa Riverwalk. They’re calling it a theme park for football fans. Scaffolding is already up as crews build tents and stages. Giant signs are now draped from Tampa high rise buildings. It’s almost time Tampa!
Player Meet & Greets (Virtually)
In previous years, players were on hand in person to meet fans. Given the COVID-19 situation, that obviously is not a good idea so NFL players in digital form will be there to say hello. They say it’ll include current players as well as NFL legends.
The Vince Lombardi Trophy
It’s what the remaining four teams (including our Bucs) are fighting for. See it up close and get your photo taken with it.
Masks will be required, payments will be cashless and they’ll limit capacity to make sure social distancing happens. None of these attractions will be indoors, which should help avoid the spread of the coronavirus.
Stuff for the Kids
Little ones can run a 40-yard dash, see if they can jump as high as an NFL player, or kick a field goal. See if you have a future Buc.
An NFL Museum
Learn about the Super Bowl history or maybe check out NFL memorabilia and visit a locker room.
