Waiting List For Season Tickets Returns

April 7th, 2021

It’s like old times for Team Glazer.

It’s unclear whether the Bucs have sold all their available season tickets, but there is now an official waiting list to get some for the 2021 season.

Man, Joe running the famous Blackout Tour to Fort Myers so fans could watch home games on free TV feels like ancient times in an alternative universe.

Buccaneers tickets are back in demand and the team is spreading the word that fans can now cough up $250 or $500 per desired seat to get on a new wait list for the right to buy season tickets.

Joe has no access to the books at One Buc Palace, so perhaps the Bucs indeed have season passes to sell and this new waiting list is just someone’s smart idea to scoop up strong sales leads. Or the Bucs have sold all their tickets and it’s a new day in Tampa Bay.

During the former glory years of Bucs football, reports had the Tampa Bay waiting list for season tickets at over 100,000 fans.

That pendulum swung completely in the other direction during the Raheem Morris/Mark Dominik era. That’s when local TV blackouts of home games were facilitated by Team Glazer because ownership didn’t buy unsold tickets to those games in order to keep them on local television, per league rules.

    The Bucs had their annual season ticket seat relocation event this past Monday 4/5. Availability was spotty at best, but there were plenty on the East side lower bowl (full frontal sun blast entire game) and in the Club seats (approximately 2x or 3x the price of lower bowl seats).

    I used to enjoy going to games. Maybe Ill run into some tix second hand. If not yall got fun. Dont waste my money of $350 shorts arent paying $350 to go to a party at Ray Jay. Plus they probably make you mask. I gave up masks about a year ago.

    $350 shorts(jerseys)

    Glad to see demand is high again. We went through some dark ages where the Bucs actually rolled back prices. Now, of course, they are higher than they have ever been, but that is how the system works. I have had my seats in section 218, row R, since the stadium opened. I am in the shade all season and even though I want club seats, I am content to stay where I am. I take a pass on seat relocation every year.

    I’ve had season tickets since 2005. If you weren’t here for “toes on the line,” the “Thriller” album, Drug Martin, MRSA, “It’s A Bucs Life,” the horror of the digital clock uniforms and 0-8 at home … I don’t want you there now. These few Tom Brady glory years aren’t for you. You don’t deserve them.

  6. Rod Munch Says:

    You see the pictures from the Wrestlemania set? Wow, the Glazers should buy that huge pirate ship they’re constructing. It looks at least 3x or 4x bigger than the existing ship – just place it in the other endzone, would look pretty awesome.

  7. Jerry Says:

    In two years when Brady is gone and cap hell hits, the stadium will barely fill 50%, especially at these prices.

    Enjoy it while it lasts.

    Wow Jerry another disappointed Jameis lover?

    Or perhaps just trying to illustrate the Power of Negative Thinking.

    I read spit like that and after feeling sorrow for the sad poster whose negativity must really provide a wonderful outlook in life I simply go…

    BWAAHAAHAAHAAA

  9. Gary Says:

    Good, hopefully I can make some money on my east stadium club seats!! Lol

  10. TampaTown Says:

    HeyitsAdam-
    Best take ever. Something only us long suffering season ticket holders can understand.

  11. cmurda Says:

    Jerry. You think that’s bad? Pfft. Lions, Bengals, Jets and Browns fans would give up their left nut to just witness their team in the playoffs let alone a Super Bowl Dubs.

  12. Swampbuc Says:

    The cynic in me wonders if the Glazers will see a few winning seasons and go back to trying to win on the cheap with dumb and dumber part2. Rahdom was moronical and then Schianominik was worse. Then Lovie The Drooler Smith. Jason’s best move was firing the lazy arrogant nepotist.

    I don’t trust the Glazers.

  13. Blue Coffee Says:

    Good! Games with noise and full of BUCS supporters!
    That will be fun!
    GO BUCS!

  14. Jerry Says:

    I witnessed what happened after the purge at the conclusion of the 2008 season where the team basically hit the reset button. I saw it with my own eyes what happened to the fans. The 2008 recession was partly to blame yes. But by 2010….we had blackouts. The stadium had more visiting fans at times than Bucs fans. Anyone who did still have season tickets were giving them away.

    Do you think that when Brady leaves and Arians leaves and other players get cut as cap casulties that everyone will keep paying $1500-$2000 a seat for season tickets? With Florida wages? It will be 2009 all over again. Who’s going to be the QB when Brady is gone? Joe here keeps talking about Teddy Bridgewater, and then even Licht mentioned Blaine Gabbert. Are they going to sell tickets?

  15. cmurda Says:

    Not saying you’re wrong Jerry. I’m just saying that it sucks much less being a Bucs fan than those previous teams I mentioned. Also, the pricing could be a lot worse. Ask Bills and Giants fans. I get it though. you’ve been loyal and there’s something to be said about that. I live too far from Ray Jay now but I used to have season tix. It was effing brutal at times. Especially in the Old Sombrero getting blasted by the sun and sitting on magnifying glass benches.

  16. David Says:

    No thanks.
    I watch from home. I used to have season tickets but prices for sports are ridiculous.
    I take my kids to –
    3 Rays games,
    1 Buccaneer game
    2 Lightning games a year
    Those six games for the 3 of us is easily $2000 or more. That includes parking, a little food, and are usually pretty cheap seats.
    Insane.

  17. Paulino Rodriguez Says:

    I want to Purchase Two Cowboys tickets, two Bills tickets and two Bears tickets wheelchair accessible seating. Can you help me find a reasonable seating chart. As I am in a financial crisis. But I do have some saved. But, I’d love for you to have a heart and help out. I’ve been paralyzed for 20 years and I want to go to some games before I die. That is.-Paulino Rodriguez

  18. TampaTown Says:

    Jerry-
    You are 💯% correct but dude you gotta lighten up and be more zen. You have to enjoy this moment and as some other posters pointed out, there’s a lot of teams who would give anything to be in our place. I understand your PTSD cause I’m right there with ya. Plus Xanax works wonders and there tons of stuff you can smoke legally now that will help you chill out. I’m gonna enjoy the fu¢k out of this as long as it lasts

  19. Rod Munch Says:

    Jerry – You’re correct about the recession, Tampa, Vegas and Miami were the three hardest hit areas in the entire country, people saw their 401k’s go down 50-70% and saw their house values literally down to around 30% of what they were just a year earlier (that’s a real number from my gate community – were house prices are only just now getting back to 2005 levels, nevermind mind the even more inflated 2006 numbers).

    But as for Florida wages, they’re really not that low anymore – not compared to the past when people moved to Florida because of the low price of living. Also thanks to the idiots raising the minimum wage to $15, which has a domino effect on everything, prices of everything are only going to increase. Enjoy paying $12 for a Big Mac soon – and when that happens, $8 for a beer isn’t going to seem that bad.

    I got a front row seat every week right in my living room,, bathroom close,, beers are cheap,, and I don’t have to walk that far to the driveway been there done that,, I understand people enjoy going to the games ,,the atmosphere,,commraderie,,

  21. Ne+ bucs fan Says:

    doesn’t mean I’m not a fan

  22. BeLOWME Says:

    Prefer to watch games at The Brickhouse. Great service, great food and great drink. Waiting in lines to park,
    piss, get food and drink and then waiting in lines to leave are not my idea of a good time.

  23. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Uh, don’t read too much into it. They are letting the existing holders move and/or renew, after which seats are up for grabs. There is no “waiting list” in the traditional sense. If you want a season ticket, you will be able to get one. Demand does not exeed supply. You just have to wait until existing holders get their opportunity to get the best seats.

    Yes, SB wins help. But this isn’t the 90s situation.

  24. Darin Says:

    Your job is complete bandwagoners! Drive up the prices that will never fall. Thanks!! P.s. at least learn proper stadium etiquette you cornholes!!

    @Jerry and SwampBuc

    I take your points. Jerry you are correct about history but you eliminate the major cause. It wasn’t the Glazers cheapness.

    The Glazers had the chance to set up their entire EXTENDED family with their purchase of Man U. As Rod points out a bad economy really stressed the family with that decision and left them over leveraged big time. And guess who had to cover that debt? Why the Bucs.

    I think the Glazers were genius in hindsight. Sucked at the time but they are now set with a genuine sports empire. Which red blooded CAPITALIST American among us can question that decision.

    As for trust…I feel the Glazers are trustworthy. The suffer IMHO only in comparison to the Lightning owner Jeff Vinik who is the best owner in all of professional sports.

    The Glazers have put down roots in Tampa and not just the Bucs. They purchased the Rennaissance Vinoy. They now own an historic hotel and tennis courts and a great golf course here.

    They’ve been as transparent as any other NFL owner.

    Bottom line for me is that I sense the Glazers are not just invested in our community but they are fans who like us WANT TO WIN.

    They are no longer under the pressure of an overleveraged gamble to double their fortune.

    ……is it the view to the other half of the field too far from your seat?? or being in the shade is much more worth it ??

    Allegedly.

    Glad I purchased my season tickets way back in 2013 during the years of futility.
