The NFL is currently scheduled to hold Super Bowl 55 in Tampa, Florida on Sunday, February 7, and we’re starting to get some details about the event.

There will be limited capacity at Raymond James Stadium for the game, with Adam Schefter reporting the NFL is currently planning on selling 20 percent of the seats. Fans will be in pods six feet apart with masks required. The stadium has a capacity of 65,890, which means 20 percent drops it down around 13,200 fans.

The NFL has had to do some rescheduling of games this season, but has not yet had to build out an 18th week of the schedule. Schefter is reporting that if a Week 18 happens, the off week after the conference championship games would be eliminated and thhe Super Bowl would remain on February 7.
