The National Football League is offering up one heck of a fan appreciation night by actually giving away 7,500 tickets to Super Bowl LV.  The lucky winners will all be fully vaccinated health care workers from all across the country.

It’s an undeniable act of both goodwill and good PR for the league.  According to Commissioner Roger Goodell,  the gesture was being made in an effort to thank the health care workers for all that they have done during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“We hope in a small way that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes. This is also an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccination and appropriate health practices, including wearing masks in public settings,” said the commish.

The majority of the 7,500 health care worker — will come from hospitals and health care systems in the Tampa and Central Florida area, as the Super Bowl is being held in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. They’ll be sitting at a safe, social-distance from another 14,500 fans who will have to  pay for a ticket to be admitted into the loneliest Superbowl ever.

There will be plenty of elbow room, considering Raymond James Stadium has a seating capacity of 65,890.  COVID-19 Protocols will be extended to the Super Bowl, included mandatory mask-wearing, podded seating, touchless in-stadium experiences at concessions, restrooms, and security checkpoints; and controlled entry and egress.

Super Bowl LV will be played Feb. 7.
