After a pandemic year with COVID-19 changing the sports landscape in the country, things are slowly getting back to normal.
One of those things that football fans look forward to each season is the start of training camp and finding out which practices will be open to fans. For Bucs fans, many have yet to see star QB Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and others in person.
But that will soon change as the Buccaneers announced the training camp schedule.
In accordance with continuing health and safety protocols, the total number of attendees at training camp will be capped each day. As a result, there will be no access for general public viewing and attendance will be limited to season pass members, luxury suite owners, Stadium Club members, premium seat holders and sponsors, prioritized by tenure on a first-come basis.
This season, all of the team’s 16 viewable practices will take place in the morning, beginning at 8:30 a.m. The practice sessions are scheduled to be held outside on the primary practice fields at AdventHealth Training Center and will feature covered bleacher seating for those in attendance.
A digital ticket – available through the Ticketmaster account manager for all members – will be required for entry to all practice sessions. There will be a $5 reservation fee per ticket with proceeds going to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation to uplift our community, inspire our youth and drive social change through programs that enrich the lives of families in our region.

“We are thrilled to welcome back our most tenured season pass members and our great corporate partners to AdventHealth Training Center for training camp this year as we continue preparations for this much-anticipated follow up to last year’s historic season,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “With the return of fans to training camp and a sold-out crowd for the upcoming season at Raymond James Stadium, the excitement surrounding Buccaneers football is stronger than ever. The energy that the fans bring to our team creates a special atmosphere that our players feed off of and we can’t wait to see that passion on display once again.”
The team’s first practice of training camp will be on Sunday, July 25. The first time that the players will be permitted to wear pads will be on Saturday, July 31, which will be part of the league-wide initiative Training Camp: Back Together Saturday. The team will also host joint practices with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, August 17, and Wednesday, August 18.
