TAMPA (CBSMiami) – The Super Bowl Experience is an interactive destination for NFL fans to visit during the week leading up to the big game. This year, organizers in Tampa had to come up with ways to keep everyone safe because of the pandemic.

“In the past our events have sort of been measured by a sea of people coming out which we love, but we don’t love that during a pandemic,” said NFL Director of Events Nicki Ewell.
Like in years past, fans can practice their kicks and try to throw a touchdown pass. But this year, every ball is wiped down in between plays.
Volunteers are also assigned to remind people to social distance when possible, and there are automatic hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the park.
