Are you ready for some (socially distanced and heavily sanitized) football? Whether you’re having a Zoom Super Bowl party for the Super Bowl snacks, the Super Bowl Commercials, or the actual sports, there is one thing that unites us all: finding the perfect Zoom background for your Super Bowl party.

By now, you’re likely a Zoom party pro. As we come up on a year since U.S. lockdowns started, we’ve all become more than familiar with working from home, having happy hours from home, and hosting holiday parties from home. This year’s Super Bowl LV will follow suit for many football fans across the country who aren’t able to gather masked and safely outside. Fortunately, throwing a Zoom Super Bowl party is about as simple as sending out a Zoom link.

Once you’ve lined up your guest list, your various chips and dips, a wide array of cheeses, and how you’ll watch the big game, it’s time to find the Zoom background that speaks to your Super Bowl soul. Regardless of whether you're Team KC, Team Tom Brady, or Team Guacamole, one thing to keep in mind is you'll want to use an image that's roughly 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels for the best quality background. From there, the internet is your Zoom background oyster. If you need a place to kick off, here are 21 virtual Zoom backgrounds to use for your 2021 Super Bowl parties.
