With COVID restrictions easing just in time for Super Bowl LVI, SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles is expected to be at or near full capacity for the game on February 13. Tickets for the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals matchup are in high demand for a number of reasons.
The first is because last year’s Superbowl was played at a reduced capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The second is due to the fact that the game will be played in Los Angeles making the Rams the home team. However, if you’re an NFL fan, you probably know that means the typically high-priced tickets will cost even more.

Depending on how many people you plan on having over, you may need to rearrange your furniture to ensure you have enough space for everyone to fit comfortably and sit. You may also want to space seating out to keep within the safety guidelines of COVID-19.
3. Ask Everyone You Invite to Bring a Negative COVID Test/Vaccine Card
This is completely optional, but if you are looking to take extra precautions to prevent the spread of COVID, you can ask that all guests that will be in attendance at your Super Bowl party either show a negative test or present their vaccine card at the door. If you are extra cautious, you can host a virtual Super Bowl party via Zoom and watch along with family and friends.
4. Multiple Coverage
Instead of having multiple guests crowding around one TV, you may try setting up another TV for maximum coverage if you are
