Bucs Make Blackout-Buster MoveJanuary 18th, 2011
In a significant move to ramp up season ticket sales, Team Glazer has signed off on cheaper prices and discounted parking and food for season ticket holders.
The Bucs announced the move today and posted all the new deals on their website. Team Glazer says it’s responding to their beloved throngs of Bucs lovers.
“Our organization has spent a lot of time listening to our fans at this time when our team is thriving and our economy is not. As a result, we are now offering several pricing changes in response to our community’s needs,” said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Joel Glazer in a release issued by the team.
Part of the new pricing is a slashing of youth seats in the upper deck on the east side of the stadium. Kids tickets are now half the price of their adult counterparts. The cheapest seats remain at $35 ($17.50 now for kids), and better ones nearby were cut considerably down to $52 and $26 for kids (medium blue in the image).
The excuse that you can’t get a decent seat at a reasonble price is now out the window. A father and son, for example, can now sit on the 50 yard line in the upper deck — and park — for less than $100 a game.
Joe’s been informed that the Bucs’ monthly payment plans apply to all season tickets. So the regular guy who just wants to get into the games can cut back on the pornography and midnight fast-food runs and use the savings to pay the Bucs monthly.
At this point, Joe’s not sure what else Team Glazer can do — beyond significant cuts to single-game pricing — and still remain intelligent businessmen. The Bucs are coming off a 10-6 season and they’ve got big time firepower in the offense, plus a great home schedule and the economy has improved.
It will be a truly sad day if the 2011 home opener is blacked out.
