In a statement released on their website the organization said, The Buccaneers are projected to surpass the NFL’s threshold of 85% tickets sold for the majority of the team’s remaining seven home games. By reaching the 85% mark, the team ensures that all games will be available on local television.
“In appreciation for the loyal support of our fans throughout the Tampa Bay area, we have committed to televise the remaining seven home games of the 2013 season,” said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer.
Limited numbers of tickets in most price categories remain available for all games and may be purchased on the team’s website www.Buccaneers.com.
Previously 19 of the last 24 regular season home games had been blacked out in the Tampa Bay area.
