President Biden is set to host a celebration with the 2021 Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on Tuesday morning at the White House, continuing a recent run of celebrations with title-winning athletes.

Tom Brady, the Tampa quarterback who has missed several presidential team visits after winning previous Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, was in attendance. Mr. Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl winner, last visited the White House in 2005, but skipped later visits under President Barack Obama and President Donald J. Trump.

The celebration for the Buccaneers is scheduled for the South Lawn of the White House, officials said, late Tuesday morning. Tampa Bay defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 earlier this year to win the N.F.L. crown.

Last month, Mr. Biden welcomed the World Series champion, the Los Angeles Dodgers, to the White House when the team was in town for a series against the Washington Nationals.
