Super Bowl in Florida: Stadiums that have hosted the big event

The city of Tampa Bay, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is preparing the party to host the Super Bowl LV 2021 in February. This will be the 11th Super Bowl in Florida.

The event has already made history in the southern state on 10 other occasions.

Florida is an enjoyable state for the event as it is an entertaining and sunny region, even in late winter.

Since the Super Bowl was created, several stadiums have hosted the event, and over the years, several of them have undergone renovations, changed their names, or even ceased to exist.

But this passage through football and Florida’s history does not fade. The records of strong emotions, great plays, beautiful victories, and bitter defeats are kept.

At least once, each stadium had its importance in Super Bowl history. Those who have already experienced the big game will never forget.

ALLTEL Stadium / TIAA Bank Field

The stadium has changed its name due to naming right contracts.

It is currently called TIAA Bank Field.

But when it was still ALLTEL, naming rights for a telecommunications company.

Hosted the Super Bowl XXXIX 2005, when the New England Patriots beat the Philadelphia Eagles.

The stadium is located in Jacksonville, Miami.

It has the capacity to receive up to 84 thousand players.

Super Bowl in Florida: Miami Orange Bowl

The stadium is located in Miami and is home to the Miami Hurricanes University.

It was opened in 1937, as the name of Burdine Stadium. It changed its name in honor of a traditional game between universities, called the Orange Bowl.

The stadium also housed the famous NFL team Miami Dolphins for 20 years, from 1966 to 1986.

The stadium hosted 5 Super Bowls: 1968, 1969,1971, 1976, and 1979.

In each of them, it had the following celebrities during the Halftime Show: Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Pink Floyd, and Prince.

It was demolished to make way for a new stadium for the Florida Marlins baseball team, Marlins Park.

Super Bowl in Florida: Tampa Stadium

It was formerly known as Houlihan’s Stadium, from 1996 to 1998, but won the simple nickname Big Sombrero, thanks to its format.

It is located in Tampa, Florida, and was previously associated with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the NFL during the games from 1976 to 1997.

It was demolished after the inauguration of the city’s new stadium, Raymond James Stadium.

Super Bowl in Florida: Hard Rock Stadium

Before becoming the current Hard Rock, the same stadium had already received several previous names: Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Land Shark Stadium, Sun Life Stadium, and New Miami Stadium.

Hard Rock isn’t just about football. It is also where lacrosse, baseball, and soccer championships are held, making it a popular place.

The stadium is located in the suburb of Miami and is home to the Miami Dolphins team.

It hosted the last event, the Super Bowl LIV 2020, and has hosted other 5 editions: 1989, 1995, 1999, 2007, and 2010.

Raymond James Stadium

It will host the Super Bowl LV 2021 in Tampa. It is also the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ home, where quarterback Tom Brady, one of the most valuable players today, plays.

The stadium opened in 1998 and was named Tampa Community Stadium.

Later, he entered into a naming rights contract with finance company Raymond James Financial, which invested in the stadium and renamed it.

It is popularly called “Ray Jay.”

A curiosity about the stadium is that it is shaped like a pirate ship, in homage to Tampa Bay traditions, known for having been colonized by explorers and having received pirates in its bay.

Local festivities revolve around piracy fame, like the legendary pirate José Gaspar, who names the city’s popular party, Gasparilla, a parade of floats that reminds the New Orleans carnival.

Like the cannons of Gasparilla floats, the Ray Jay Stadium, in addition to being built in the shape of a ship, still keeps fans enthusiastic when the home team scores: cannons are fired according to the Buccaneers’ performance during the match.

The stadium has the capacity to receive up to 65,000 fans. Still, due to the pandemic this year, contingency and health safety rules restricted the capacity to just 15,000 fans on Super Bowl day.

Many celebrities and football stars will be attending.
