The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they have lowered season ticket pricing up to 20% for adults with youth tickets starting at $17.50. In a press release the team said that in response to fan feedback and the Tampa Bay region's economic challenges, the team would introduce new family-friendly features to try and improve the team's home field advantage in the 2011 season.
The Bucs went 4-4 at home in 2010 and the team had all 10 of their home games (preseason and regular seaosn) blacked out on local television. Next year the Buccaneers will host: the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, Indianapolis Colts, and Houston Texans.
"Our organization has spent a lot of time listening to our fans at this time when our team is thriving and our economy is not. As a result, we are now offering several pricing changes in response to our community's needs," said Bucs co-chairman Joel Glazaer.
The team states that tens of thousands of season ticket prices have been slashed by up to 20%. Adult tickets are now starting at $35 per game. Selected season parking has been discounted by up to 40% with prices starting at $13.50. Season pass holders are also set to receive a 10% discount on stadium, food, beverage and merchandise purchases. The team offers 10-month payment plans.
