On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Super Bowl LV after an unprecedented NFL season amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The 2021 event will be the lowest attended Super Bowl in history due to COVID-19 restrictions, according to the New York Times. However, millions of fans will be able to watch from home.

Here's everything you need to know before kickoff.

Meanwhile, Mahomes, 25, was drafted by the Chiefs in 2017 and led the team to their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years in 2020, ultimately coming out victorious over the San Fransisco 49ers.

Due to the airborne transmission of COVID-19 and case spikes across the country, the CDC continually advises against gatherings of large groups and recommends six feet of distance and face coverings at all times.

Fans can also look forward to a national anthem duet performed by Grammy-nominated artists Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church. The Weeknd will be headlining the event with a halftime show performance.
