(Buccaneers.com) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed home to make Super Bowl history.

The Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers, 31-26 , in the 2020 NFC Championship Game on Sunday at Lambeau Field, earning a spot in Super Bowl LV. Tampa Bay will be the first team ever to battle for the Lombardi Trophy on their own home field. The Super Bowl is set for Sunday, February 7, at Raymond James Stadium.

The Buccaneers will battle either the Buffalo Bills or the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. Those two teams square off in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, with kickoff at 6:40 p.m. ET.

Two previous teams have played in a Super Bowl in their home regions.

The 1979 Los Angeles Rams, who played their home games at the L.A. Coliseum, met Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl. The 1984 San Francisco 49ers, who played their home games at Candlestick Park, met the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX at the Stanford University stadium.

However, no team prior to this year has ever made it back to their own stadium to play for the Super Bowl championship.
