The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Bucs) will take on the defending champions, the Kansas City Chiefs in the upcoming Super Bowl LV game, but when’s the big event scheduled to take place? February 7, 2021 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida with entertainment going on right up until kick-off at 11pm!
What are the predictions?
The Buccaneers will be pulling on the white jersey and pewter pants, and this will be the first time they have hosted a game at home in Florida. The opposition, the Chiefs will be sporting their usual red jerseys. Despite only being a few days until the big showdown, there’s still plenty of practicing taking place, but who’s favourited to win? According to online betting markets, the favourite to win The Super Bowl is The Chiefs, but all this could change!
Raymond James Stadium is usually home to some 65,620 fans, but due to the current global epidemic, only 20,000 will be welcomed. The Chiefs hammered the San Francisco 49ers in last year’s Super Bowl 54 – 14 to 2 and they have their sights set on retaining that trophy in 2021.
