Hillsborough County Commissioners will vote on the plan on Wednesday for the spending of the $10.4 million that would include hand sanitizing stations, an outdoor PA system and a touchless ticket entry system, among other things designed to help those in attendance decrease their chances of contracting the virus.
Besides helping to protect Bucs fans, the new upgrades would benefit those who attend USF Bulls games and also the upcoming NFL Super Bowl set to be played in Tampa in 2021.
The big question is, will anyone be in attendance to take advantage of the safety upgrades? According to Stroud the Bucs are expected to announce their ticketing and attendance plans for this season by the end of the week.
