Cheap Seat Ticket Update

August 25th, 2011

Earlier Joe reported that cheap seats for opening day on Sept. 11 were all gobbled up, per what Joe was seeing on

Well, Joe must stand corrected. There are about 100 $44 seats — total — available in sections 329, 328, 327, 344, 343 and 342 for the Bucs-Lions game featuring half-price concessions and hopefully decent refereeing.

So hurry up and get your credit card humming.

    The suntan sections!

    with ticketmaster you have to tinker with how many seats you want. Sometimes 2 seats won’t pop up in the price you want but if you want 5 or just 1 they might just pop up!

    Bucs should roll back the 30% ticket increase they did 3 years ago for all seats, all sections, all levels. That decision now seems ill timed and ill advised.

    328 is my old section, 1pm games are brutal in those seats. Wish I could still afford them though…

    Club seats are the way to go, especially in the heat. We went last year to the Browns game and we bought them because my wife was 5 months pregnant and she needed the A/C (and coming from Hawaii, that Florida heat is no joke!). It was worth every penny for all of us. It’s kind of like riding first class in a plane, very difficult to “slum it” in the regular seats again, lol.

    Club seats are nice if you can afford them.

    I sat 50 yard line, top row, on the West side, Club 1 for Pittsburgh last year but I have also had the free upgrade from the bucs twice on the east side Club 3- They are nice but not worth the season ticket prices IMO.

    And the club 3 seats, looking at the EZ in front of me, were not really great seats compared to some of the slum area’s 😉 , (my slum seats are on the 40)on the other hand the west side Club 1 seats were real nice!

    Many posters proved that ticketmaster doesn’t tell the whole story. Many of us watch ticketmaster last year and 5-7 days before the game there might only be 3-5k tickets, or even less for the steelers game.

    Then Miraculously 2 days before the game another 10k tickets would appear. It was obvious the team was releasing tickets in batches to spur sales.

    please research this for those who want to know.

    USMC-BUC is dead on becasue right now there are only like 2,500 tickets left if that was the case the game would not be black out and the local news and st pete polticians would all be freaking out! news nothing to write about and the polticians would have to stop trying to compare bucs to rays

  10. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Before the training camps started, the nfl said they would allow clubs to put tarps over seats in order to reduce the number of tickets required to avoid a blackout. Have you had any word on whether the Buccaneers are doing this? Or plan to?

  11. Joe Says:


    The league was thinking about that, nothing more and clearly there has been no action taken.

    Joe’s beginning to get really bored with blackouts. If the game is not on TV and someone wants to watch it, go to the game. Real simple. Or, just wait until midnight to watch in on several different platforms including NFL Sunday Ticket.

    The NFL has all sorts of ways to watch games via NFL Sunday Ticket. If people choose not to have it, that’s their choice. At some point in life, you cannot expect people to serve you breakfast in bed each Sunday. You gotta get up and prepare breakfast yourself. Same applies to watching football at times. Shoot, there is even the Blackout Tour.

    Gary Shelton recently wrote a column about when Van Halen or Bruce Springsteen or Jimmy Buffett comes to town they don’t broadcast the concerts on local TV. No one complains about that. But God forbid an NFL game is blacked out.
