The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday announced the team’s 2014 training camp schedule, which features an expanded selection of open practice dates for fans, with 12 days that will be available to the general public. The first of these free, public practices will take place on Friday, July 25, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Remaining dates and times are detailed below. For the sixth consecutive year, the Buccaneers will host training camp at the team’s headquarters, One Buccaneer Place, where Bay Area fans can most conveniently experience the excitement of watching the club prepare for the 2014 season. In addition, a selection of practices will take place in the evening, allowing more opportunity for spectators to take advantage of the viewings. “The excitement surrounding our upcoming season has been building for months around the Tampa Bay area and we are thrilled to announce an even greater number of opportunities for our fans to come out to One Buccaneer Place to see our team prepare for what promises to be a great season,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “This year, more than half of the 12 open practices will be conducted in the late afternoon and early evening hours, allowing for cooler temperatures and a more convenient post-work viewing window for our fans.” The popular Night Practice at Raymond James Stadium is scheduled to take place on Friday, August 1, and, like all open practices, will feature free parking and admission. Additional Night Practice details will be released at a later date. 2014 TRAINING CAMP PUBLIC SCHEDULEFriday, July 254:30 – 7:00 p.m.Saturday, July 264:30 – 7:00 p.m.Sunday, July 272:00 – 4:30 p.m.Thursday, July 312:00 – 4:30 p.m.Friday, August 1TIME TBA *(Night Practice at Raymond James Stadium)Sunday, August 34:30 – 7:00 p.m.Monday, August 44:30 – 7:00 p.m.Tuesday, August 54:30 – 7:00 p.m.Sunday, August 102:00 – 4:30 p.m.Monday, August 114:30 – 7:00 p.m.Tuesday, August 124:30 – 7:00 p.m.Thursday, August 142:00 – 4:30 p.m.*PLEASE NOTE: Practice schedule and times are subject to change.
