Limited Availability For Bucs Training Camp

July 3rd, 2009

bucs-training-campsA lot of Bucs fans were geeked to learn that training camp would be at One Buc Palace as opposed to the Mouse House in Orlando. Hey, only need to drive to One Buc Palace instead of fighting that horrible Orlando traffic. What’s not to like?

Well, how about limited access?

Per Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune, the Bucs won’t completely have an open door policy. In fact, unless you join a specific “club,” via, you might get shut out.

The team’s three-week camp is shifting from Orlando to the team’s state-of-the-art facility in Tampa. And though practices remain free and open to the public, attendance will be limited to about 4,000 people each day.

The team, which announced the full camp schedule today, is encouraging fans wishing to attend to join One Buc Club, members of which will have the first opportunity to receive complimentary tickets. Camp tickets will be available on-site the day of practices, provided the day is not “sold out” through advance orders from One Buc Club members

In short, if you don’t cough up your address and home phone number so that the Bucs ticket sales crowd can hound you, getting to watch a Bucs practice might be little more than a pipe dream.

    This is just a smart marketing move and MUCH better than charging fans $5 or more to see practice.

    Mr. Lucky:

    Trust Joe, the Glazer Boys would love to charge fans to come to training camp. But per NFL rules, if you start charging fans to watch training camp, you then have to open up all practices for other teams to film and scout.

    Not sure about the parking.

    Joe. Love you buddy. But if you’re dumb enough to cough up your real contact information, then you’re not very smart.

    Call yourself Joe Smith, grab a gmail address and enjoy training camp.
