Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preseason Details
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enjoy one of the best game atmospheres in professional sports, thanks to their team name and everything that comes with it. In the preseason, that holds true while the team looks to get itself set for the regular season amid one of the more unique backdrops in American sports.
One of the things that makes the Bucs’ game day atmosphere so unique is the fact that the team has an actual pirate ship in their stadium. When the Bucs score, the cannons in the ship are fired in celebration, which is something that you will not find at other NFL stadiums. Unsurprisingly, this celebration gets crowds at Buccaneers games fired up on a regular basis.
In addition to that unique feature of Raymond James Stadium, the Bucs also have one of the most pleasant climates to watch preseason football in. Warm summer Floridian air makes going out to a preseason football game immensely enjoyable, as most Bucs fans can attest to.
On the field, the Bucs often take on the Miami Dolphins during preseason competition. Both teams are based in Florida and have a geographic rivalry for the adoration of Floridians, even if the two teams play in completely different conferences. With the two squads playing once every four years in the regular season, this preseason showdown feels important to Florida area sports fans.
The Bucs have used the preseason to prepare many young players for the bright lights of the NFL, including one of their former number one picks in Jameis Winston. Winston, a Florida State product, saw his first playing time as a pro in the preseason as the team looked to mold his considerable skill set to the demands of the NFL.
And the team has used the preseason to find valuable contributors elsewhere on the field. Running back Payton Barber was a relatively anonymous player in the league before the Bucs elevated him to one of the key cogs of their offense in the Winston era. Their decision to use Barber more prominently had plenty to do with his leading the team in rushing during the preseason, a preseason that saw him show off his explosivity, which was more important than his preseason stats.
When do Tampa Bay Buccaneers preseason tickets go on sale?
Bucs fans can generally expect tickets to see the team play in the preseason as soon as the league announces its schedule. This typically happens in the middle of April, although there isn’t a set date for the schedule release every year. The schedule release encompasses both the regular season and preseason, with a team’s full slate of matchups announced.
How much do Tampa Bay Buccaneers preseason tickets cost?
