The Super Bowl will have a decent amount of fans in attendance Sunday when the Chiefs and Buccaneers take the field.

According to Tom Pelissero, the final count for fan attendance at Super Bowl LV is 25,000 and there will be 30,000 seats with cutouts in them. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

ESPN’s Adam Schefter had previously reported that 7,500 seats at the game would be reserved for healthcare workers.

Is it going to be weird watching the Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium with less than a packed house in attendance? Without a doubt. There’s no question at all that it’s going to be weird.

Having said that, I’d still rather have only 25,000 fans in attendance than none at all. It’s not even a tough call to make.

I think I speak for NFL fans everywhere when I say 25,000 fans down in Tampa watching Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes battle is absolutely better than nobody at all.

It’s far from perfect, but it’s the best we can do during the coronavirus pandemic.
