Down Go Ticket Prices

November 24th, 2011

Sign of the times?

Sign of the team?

Sign of Team Glazer hearing the cries of fans?

It’s surely some combination of the three. But regardless, the Bucs have cut 2012 season ticket prices in many price ranges. The cheapo 300-level seats are now down to only $30 a head and you can pay over 10 months, per

Many of the popular $35-season tickets will now be just $30 per game, and the previously $17.50 youth tickets for fans 16-and-under will drop to just $15 per game. A family of four would pay only $90 per game if they chose to sit in the most affordable seats. 

Season passes in the lower level will also be considerably more affordable. For example, 100-level end zone tickets have gone from $89 to $75 per game. With the new prices, a family of four seeking to sit in the lower level would save $560 from last year’s season pass prices.

Joe hopes this all makes a blackout-busting difference, though Joe sadly suspects otherwise.

If the Bucs can win out, or at least head to Atlanta in January at 9-6, then that might fire up the bandwagon. But otherwise it’s probably another opening day blackout without an opponent with a huge local following.

    Still a poorly managed – cheap organization…Than couldn’t pass out free tickets to get people to go watch this year’s brand of Buc football.

    as the old saying goes…..”you get what you pay for”
    and this applies to parties… and franchise

    I’ll wait till 2013 when they are only $20…..fact is until the product on the field is competitive, and exciting on a consistent bases black outs will continue. One game last week doesn’t erase the slow starts, check downs, penalties, vanilla offence, and a defence that has laid down more than they stand up. I’ll save my cash for something a little more entertaining. That $90 price only includes tickets, add another $150 for parking and food. Average Joe still isn’t doing that.

    This is their faulty solution to:

    A) get fans to buy up tickets so they dont have to avoid further community negativity and apathy; and
    B) try to improve their public relations standing with out having to improve the product.

    Economist will tell you if you want to improve sales: lower the price or improve the product – predictably these cheap skates chose the former.

    You can lower tickets all you want, but you can’t force your fans to be faithful. Just the way it is, even with cheap tickets our fans won’t show up because the vast majority like Captain Stagger, Architek and Thomas are front runners and will only show up when they’re a great team.

    Hey but seriously guys, happy Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for JoeBucsFan so I have a place to debate my fellow fan on a daily basis!

    Like lowering endzone tickets from 89 to 75 is going to bring back the masses if you retain rah rah and avoid free agency again.

    I would repurchase my tix and pay more $ for a real coach and a handful of key vets.

    Guys are these new prices similar to other NFL teams? Or are the Bucs lower than say the Dolphins or Jaguars?

    I only ask because as a British guy who goes to a lot of rugby matches, the tickets you guys get is unbelievable value…trust me, to go and watch Wales play rugby costs me equivalent of $105 per person, per game!

  8. Blubber Price Says:

    Since our team doesn’t start playing until after half-time , shouldn’t everything be HALF price next season ??

  9. Nate Says:

    The euro is worth more then the dollar.. so your tickets is alot cheaper then that price…for rugby your also in a popular area i bet too..I mean if we lived in Newyork city id expect to pay more because our salaries would be more..

  10. Wade Says:

    Anyone who that spends more than $20 to watch professional sports is not very bright. Stop giving your money to these people.

  11. McBuc Says:

    Nate…you must have missed the key words in UK’s post…”equivalent of $105 per person”. He was figuring in the exchange rate. Soccer games are even more. Your London and NY comparison is on thogh.

  12. McBuc Says:

    Nate, also the UK uses the Pound, which is worth more than the Dollar and the Euro.
