Fans will be permitted at this year’s Super Bowl – but cash isn’t.

The league is making Super Bowl LV a cash-free event, with only contactless payment options at food stands, souvenir booths, and everywhere else in the stadium.

Fans who bring cash can exchange it at a “reverse ATM” which will dispense a gift card for the cash amount.

League officials say the move to a cash-free system was already in the works, but was ‘accelerated’ by the pandemic.

Super Bowl LV will be held Feb. 7th at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

Attendance will be limited to 20% of stadium capacity.
