Bucs Rewarding Longtime Season Ticket HoldersNovember 6th, 2009
Joe’s got official confirmation of a kind gesture and smart business move enacted by the Glazers and their business team at One Buc Palace.
With great seats available all season long, the Bucs have been offering many of their most loyal customers free upgrades to unsold club level seats (those seats don’t count toward TV blackouts).
Joe first learned of this via comments made by multiple callers to various sports radio stations over the past week.
Today, Jeff Kamis, Bucs director of all things media, confirmed the team’s generosity to some lucky, dedicated fans.
“This is a program that we have been running this season in appreciation to our long term season ticket holders,” Kamis wrote in an e-mail.
Of course, the Bucs can’t put this offer out to every season ticket holder in the upper level. But the sheer joy in the voices of those who scored the upgrade is no doubt easing the pain of the winless season.
Given all the no-shows for recent games, it’s also likely a smart way to put more fannies in the seats on game day. The season ticket holder who gets the free upgrade is more likely to attend the game — and spend money at the stadium.
