The NFL is rewarding thousands of brave health care workers with Super Bowl tickets.
The NFL has somehow found a way to pull off a full season during the COVID-19 pandemic. The league has reached the conference championship stage this weekend and the Super Bowl is set for February 7.
The game will be played in Tampa and the league has announced an awesome move to give out 7,500 tickets to health care workers who have done so much during this unimaginable time.
NFL gives back to health care workers
The entire attendance for this year’s Super Bowl will be 22,000 people. That is quite the large crowd given the fact plenty of teams played in front of zero fans throughout the 2020 season.
Ideally, more health care workers would be able to attend. But there are obvious restrictions in place and this remains a nice gesture by the NFL. Those who have sacrificed so much will get a chance to have a night of fun and be among a small group of people actually able to see an NFL game in person this season.
It may not even matter who is ultimately playing in the game. Just going to the Super Bowl is a fun experience and being able to do so this year is going to be a story to tell forever. If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers end up making it, that could be a bonus for health care workers in Florida getting a chance to see the game.
Playing the Super Bowl at all is an accomplishment. Having fans in attendance will be fun and add some atmosphere in what should be a safe manner given all the protocols are followed.
Health care workers deserve so much appreciation and this is a great move by the NFL. Hopefully, this trend remains around throughout all sports as 2021 progresses.
