TAMPA, Fla. — Structures are now going up for the Super Bowl Experience at Julian B. Lane Park, on Tampa’s Riverwalk.

Eventually, it will be wall-to-wall football.

You’ll be able to compare your 40-yard dash time to the pros, kick field goals in the Play 60 Zone and take a picture with the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

“It gives folks a chance to come down, create memories related to the Super Bowl. Experience it, whether it’s punting, passing, kicking. Being interactive. Getting photo opportunities," said Super Bowl host committee president Rob Higgins.

COVID-19 means some changes for the Super Bowl Experience. For example, face to face autograph sessions with NFL players is out. And there will be limited capacity with all the usual safety protocols in place.

“Great protocols like mandatory mask-wearing, the health screening that takes place in advance, and social distancing. So we are doing our part to make sure it’s a really fun yet safe event," said Higgins.

Elsewhere, Curtis Hixon Park is the place for live music and the official NFL merchandise shop.

The Riverwalk will also have a technology village.

In all, the events stretch for nearly three miles all the way to Sparkman’s Wharf.

To keep up with all the Super Bowl-related events, you can download the NFL’s One Pass app.

You can use it soon to register for the free tickets that will get you into the Super Bowl Experience.
