Ahead of the championship game in Tampa Bay on Feb. 7, the NFL announced that they would give away free tickets. However, they will give the free tickets to a total of 7,500 vaccinated health care workers. This is in support of their services during this trying time.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in the press release that he was inviting the workers ‘’as guests of the NFL. To thank and honor them for their continued extraordinary service during the pandemic.’’
‘’These dedicated health care workers continue to put their own lives at risk to serve others. We owe them our ongoing gratitude. We hope in a small way that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes,’’ Goodell said.
He continued saying that this is a good opportunity to promote vaccination and appropriate health practices including wearing the mask in public.
According to the NFL, all health workers will have received their second doses of the vaccine prior to attending the super bowl event. It is said that most of the health workers will come from hospitals and health care centers in Tampa. However, all the 32 NFL teams will be able to select some health workers from their respective communities to attend the event.
In addition to the free tickets, the health care workers will also receive game-day experiences. And also recognize them for their efforts.
Safety protocols will, however, be observed and these will include mask-wearing, social-distancing, podded seating among other protocols.
