Super Bowl 55 will take place at the Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and will be the first time a team has played in their home stadium. For Tom Brady, it will be his 10th Super Bowl he will be seeking his seventh win – both of which are records. The veteran will go up against the Chiefs’ outstanding young quarterback Patrick Mahomes. “To go on the road and win another play-off game is just a great achievement and now a home Super Bowl for the first time in NFL history I think puts a lot of cool things in perspective,” said Brady. “Any time you are the first time doing something it is usually a pretty good thing.”

 

Mahomes, the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in last season’s Super Bowl, is relishing the chance to go head to head with the player many regard as the NFL’s greatest of all time. He said: “Being able to go up against one of the greatest if not the greatest quarterback of all time, it’s going to be a great experience for me. To go out there and have the chance to repeat (the 2020 win) and get to do it against the best, it’s something special and I’m excited for the opportunity.” As a result of Covid-19 restrictions, only 22,000 people will be at the match, with 7,500 places reserved for health care workers, who have been given free tickets.
