Getting a COVID-19 vaccination may pay off in more ways than one for 50 lucky football fans. The National Football League has announced that it will give out 50 free tickets to Super Bowl LVI in February 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles to vaccinated Americans in an effort to help the national vaccination drive.
The league intends to work with the White House COVID Response Team and Global Citizen on the initiative, which includes the chance to win a pair of Super Bowl tickets for fans who share their story on why they got vaccinated or will soon get vaccinated.
Details on how to win will be unveiled May 8 during Global Citizen’s “VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World” show. The event will bring together artists, entertainers and world leaders, including President Joe Biden, to support vaccine equity. The special, which will take place at SoFi Stadim, will be broadcast nationally beginning at 8 p.m. ET across multiple platforms including ABC, CBS and Fox.
More than 3 million vaccinations have been administered at 21 NFL stadiums and venues since January. In addition, the NFL will also offer a 25 percent discount on purchases made at NFLShop.com for vaccinated fans later this year.
The initiative isn’t the first league effort to honor those have received vaccinations. At Super Bowl LV in Tampa, the league invited 7,500 vaccinated health care workers to attend as guests of the league and to thank them for their service during the pandemic.
