Super Bowl LV was an American football game played to determine the champion of the National Football League (NFL) for the 2020 NFL season. The National Football Conference (NFC) champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Kansas City Chiefs, 31–9. The game took place on February 7, 2021, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. It was the fifth Super Bowl hosted by the Tampa area and the third held at Raymond James Stadium. It was the fourth time that the Super Bowl was in the same state in back-to-back years; Super Bowl LIV had taken place at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
The Buccaneers became the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium, and the first wild card team to appear in the Super Bowl since the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV. In his first season as a player for the Buccaneers, quarterback Tom Brady appeared in his 10th Super Bowl and won his seventh, both records for an individual player. The Chiefs sought to become the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since Brady's former team, the New England Patriots (XXXVIII and XXXIX). Due to COVID-19 protocols limiting the stadium's seating capacity to 25,000 fans, this was the least-attended Super Bowl. For the 5th time in his career, Brady was named Super Bowl MVP, completing 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns.
The game was televised nationally by CBS. Country music singer Eric Church and R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan performed the national anthem, while the halftime show was headlined by Canadian singer the Weeknd.
