Raymond James Stadium Capacity Set For 20% For Super Bowl, WrestleMania 37

Super Bowl LV is now scheduled for February 7th, and WrestleMania 37 is set for March 28th.

The home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which had been expected to have a capacity crowd of close to 75,000 for the February 7 National Football League championship game, would instead host between 13,000 and 15,000 fans, making one of the most sought-after tickets in sport even tougher to find, ESPN reported on Wednesday.

As it maneuvers through the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Football League has kept open the possibility of pushing back the Super Bowl for up to four weeks in order to complete its regular season.

At this point, the National Football League is planning to hold capacity to 20% at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium, which normally holds 65,000 fans.

"There have been 19 teams that have already or have been authorized by public authorities to host regular-season games", a spokesman said.

Fans will reportedly be placed in pods 6 feet apart from others and masks will be required in the stands due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Adam Schefter reports that the stadium will have a 20% capacity during the NFL's biggest game of the year. The NFL reportedly planned to create a Week 18 if such issues continued.

Raymond James Stadium has a maximum capacity of almost 66,000.

The NFL has not added a Week 18 yet, though that could become a possibility if games get postponed later in the season.

The stadium has a seating capacity of 65,618 fans, meaning an estimated crowd of 13,000 to 15,000 could be allowed to attend the game.
