COVID-19 safety precautions for Super Bowl LV
Maintain at least 6ft of distance from those around you whether you're in one of our parks, in the Stadium, or anywhere else in our city. Six-foot physical distancing markers will be displayed throughout common areas inside and outside of Super Bowl Experience and Raymond James Stadium. Remember, we're in this together so make sure to be respectful of other fans and their space.
Facial coverings will be mandatory for everyone (fans and staff) and must be worn at all times (other than while eating or drinking), including in security lines. Note: Bandanas, face coverings with a vent, or a plastic shield without a face covering underneath are not permissible for use at Super Bowl Experience or Raymond James Stadium. Wearing a face covering not only helps to protect you but also other fans, so be a good teammate.
Hand sanitizer will be readily available for your use throughout Super Bowl Experience and Raymond James Stadium, and fans are encouraged to use it regularly.

Major Events Centralized Permitting Guide
See our permitting guide for major events, alcohol and beverage, banners, pyrotechnics, food trucks, street closures and more.
The days leading up Super Bowl LV will be filled with events attracting many visitors to the City of Tampa. The events will expose the City to television viewers nationally and internationally, and the events are projected to have a major economic impact on our community.
Given the large scale of the events and the large number of people attending or participating in the events, it is in the best interest of the City and its citizens to regulate the areas which are in proximity to or impacted by the events to keep everyone safe and our City looking its best.
To preserve the public health, safety and welfare of all citizens, visitors and participants as well as the aesthetic conditions of the area, a temporary Event Zone will be established in and around official Super Bowl LV events beginning on January 28, 2021 and continuing through February 9, 2021.
Downtown Event Zone
Raymond James Stadium Event Zone
The event zone is a geographically defined area around official Super Bowl LV events, which is designed to preserve the health, safety and welfare of all citizens, visitors and participants as well as the aesthetic qualities of the area and flow of people and goods.
The Event Zone begins on January 28, 2021 and continues through February 9, 2021.
The Event Zone ordinance prohibits temporary outdoor activities, tents/structures, signage and commercial promotional activities within the right-of-way.
Commercial activities, including the distribution, sale or provision of commercial handbills, circulars, cards, posters, pamphlets, brochures or booklets, product or merchandise of any kind (whether free or not), service or coupons (otherwise referred to as sampling) and other promotional giveaways or commercial enterprises on a public street, sidewalk, public right-of-way, or any other City-owned property
The ordinance also regulates temporary outdoor activities on private property. These regulations reinforce existing land use permitting requirements concerning temporary structures, signage, alcohol, and site plan.
A map with the Event Zone boundaries can be accessed on this page. (above)
Operations, signage and marketing plans should be submitted for prior approval if your event falls within the Event Zone. City land development will need to review any proposed temporary activities on private property.
Official NFL partners may be exempt from the requirements of the Event Zone. Prior approval by the NFL must be received for this exemption to be in effect.
A violation of the Ordinance will result in an immediate citation for a fine in the amount of four hundred and fifty dollars ($450.00). Each subsequent violation of this ordinance shall constitute a separate offense and result in a separate citation for a fine in the amount of four hundred and fifty dollars ($450.00). Fines assessed shall be in addition to the abatement of the violating condition, any injunctive relief, or revocation of any permit or license. The proper officers and employees of the City are hereby authorized to do all things necessary and proper to carry out the provisions of the Ordinance
