Determined to obliterate local blackouts, in part by rewarding serious Bucs fans, Team Glazer has slashed prices for 35 percent of all season tickets, so the Buccaneers announced today.

All kinds of price points and virtual field views can be seen on Buccaneers.com. The lowest price season tickets remains at $30 for adults. The cheapest lower level season ticket has dropped from $75 to $65 next year.

Joes not sure this will generate a stampede of new season ticket holders. But its a wise and appropriate move.

I know a lot of people who are now thinking of getting tickets for next year. They really enjoyed watching this team play this year. Its coming around guys. I think if they keep heading in this direction but getting wins, they will have themselves a solid fanbase soon. Just gotta keep working hard but turn those close losses into wins.

Hopefully. They deserve to have sell outs how hard they worked this year.

several seasons late - wonder why it took them so long to figure out price points that sell tickets - $65 for lower bowl is more appropriate in this economy/market

 Paying full price for meaningless preseason games and making them mandatory for season ticket packages is another annoying thing the NFL does to its customers.

35% Off $75 is $48.25


Fuzzy math aside, I think this is a positive move.






It is a new day in TAMPA BAY!    GO BUCS!!

Too bad considering they raised prices 35% at the end of 2007.

I'm curious if the Glazers consider the preseason games with many no-name camp fodder is worth the same price as a regular season game.

The Glazers dont have a choice. The NFL forces them to charge the same amount for those games.

You can thank the union for that.

Unions are the cause? That's a new one. Funny, the NBA and MLB unions don't have that same influence on their sports.

Preseason football exists for one reason: The owners want it. They want it because they don't have to share the revenues with the players, whose salaries do not kick in until the regular season starts and are only paid training camp rates for the exhibition games. The players are there pretty much gratis.

You would need to cut prices 26% to be back at those same levels.  Or were we not focusing on the fuzzy math anymore?

If the Glazers cut ticket prices that much, it would be an ethical decision.   Especially considering the economy is now worse than it was at the end of 2007.
