Super Bowl LV attendance numbers are official.

There will be 25,000 fans and 30,000 cutouts at Raymond James Stadium for Sunday's game, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The league announced last month that 7,500 vaccinated health care workers will be invited as guests, meaning the remaining 17,500 will be paid attendees for the matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Those who attend will be required to follow mask-wearing protocols and sit in socially distanced pods. The health care workers must have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Raymond James Stadium, home of the Buccaneers, typically seats 66,000.

Tampa Bay ranked third in attendance during the regular season, averaging 14,483 fans per game at just over 22% capacity as the NFL played through a global pandemic.

The Super Bowl capacity will surpass every team's average attendance except for the Dallas Cowboys, who had over 28,000 fans attend home games in 2020.
