The Super Bowl is regarded as one of the biggest events in sports across America, pulling together numerous celebrities and fans worldwide. It is a blend of sports, entertainment, and tradition to such an extent that fans will pay anything to at least once see it live in their lives. The Super Bowl marks the climax of the NFL season with some of the greatest moments in football on a global stage.
As the 2024 Super Bowl is just around the corner, some of the most prolific individuals from Hollywood are all set to fly to Las Vegas to be a part of the celebration. As such, on Sunday San Francisco 49ers are slated to play against the defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs. For obvious reasons, Super Bowl Sundays has gone down as one of the highest-viewed games ever seen on television.

This leaves us wondering how many fans will come together to be a part of this historic event and whether they will exceed the numbers from the previous year.
Attendance at Super Bowl 2024
The game between the Patrick Mahomes-led team against the 49ers will take place in Sin City. Vegas authorities are hoping to draw in about 450,000 visitors. However, only a fraction of the attendees secure entry into the stadium. The action will take place at Allegiant Stadium, home to the Las Vegas Raiders which offers a standard seating capacity of 65,000.
It appears that the crowd size for the game will go over that amount, as close to 72,000 people are expected to pack the stands. On the contrary, the 2023 Super Bowl garnered about 73,000 fans according to bolavip.com.
