It marks the first time in NFL history that a team will be playing in a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
While there are plenty of key matchups that will dictate how the game plays out, there is another matchup that always generates interest from fans across the country: what uniforms will be worn?
Well, now we know.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Buccaneers had the choice of which uniforms to wear as the home team — because it is the NFC’s turn to play “host” of the big game and not because it’s their actual home stadium — and they decided to go with white jerseys and pewter pants which they wore in the NFC Championship Game win over the Green Bay Packers.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, will wear their traditional red jerseys and white pants.
Bucs will be wearing their white jerseys and pewter pants for Super Bowl LV, while the Chiefs will be wearing their red jerseys.
