Buccaneers Game Is Not Sold Out

September 17th, 2021

A big load of seats is available all around The Licht House for Sunday’s game against the Falcons, and they are “standard” seats at TicketMaster, not the scalp jobs known as “Verified Resale.”

How could this be with the stadium “sold out” to season pass holders?

The truth doesn’t really matter. The bottom line is there are a smattering of cheaper and more expensive seats available all over the east (sunny) side.

The Bucs emailed fans recently saying the Falcons returned some of their allotment of tickets, but what’s available certainly seems like a lot more than that.

Joe is happy for Bucs fans who wanted to score tickets to just one game without paying the jacked up prices seen for the opener against the Cowboys.

If you can’t go to the game, do head to Publix and stock up on Bromosa from Big Storm Brewery. You will be so, so glad you did.

    I mean that’s how people pay for season tickets they sell some and don’t go to every game. I snagged some tickets to the game. These tickets are NOT resale tickets.–Joe

    I wonder how this compares to the rest of the league. I didn’t get to watch many games on Sunday but I did see some empty seats around the league. Maybe this is a COVID thing, mixed with some financial struggles around the country. It’s also the Falcons. Not the most enticing matchup to want to drop that kind of cash on.

    Pete just realized that Antonio Brown is actually Oil Can Boyd

    GOOD LORD god I bought my tickets almost a month ago and they seemed to be sold out and now they are cheaper.

  6. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Many season ticket holders live outside the state and only use some of their tickets….sell the others online.

    I’ve heard of teams holding back tickets for sponsors and the home team’s player requests, so I doubt these are all Falcons family/staff tickets. No way. Some of those locations are really good. I bet the team wouldn’t sell them for the whole season, because they knew they would want these locations for the big games like Dallas, Bills, etc.

    This means local blackout?

  10. Michael Says:

    They haven’t done blackouts in years. 😀🏈

  11. Rod Munch Says:

    I thought they were sold out for the year.

    That’s some bad marketing, to say you’re sold out for the year, then quietly release tickets.

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    Ticketmaster is charging a $42 service fee on a $210 ticket? Wow, that is insane. I’m a fancy man, but even I find that to be intolerable.

    WoooHoo! Heading down tomorrow from Virginia for Section 112! GO BUCS!

  14. Bryan Childs Says:

    LOL. And people keep saying a stadium in Tampa would help the Rays….

  15. SOEbuc Says:

    Its a vacation spot. Before the Brady bandwagon it was probably 50 percent Bucs, 50 percent other team that has many more die hard fans and larger fan base.

  16. Rod Munch Says:

    Based on the way the seats are arranged, it sure appears as if the Bucs were just holding back some tickets. Not sure why, but that’s what it looks like.

    However, in terms of resale tickets, it’s literally like half the stadium. Meaning if you’re willing to wait until Sunday afternoon to buy tickets, you’ll probably get some really cheap. Well, before service fees.

    Makes me wonder how many people are going to actually be there, in particular if it rains.

    Rod Muncher , I will sell you my ticket for $250 with no service fee. No problem ! Great seats in section 110 !!!

  18. Garv Says:

    I find that hard to believe. I thought all the games were sold out. HATE it when opposing team fans take up so many seats but for one saving grace….. It’s just SOOO gratifying to send them home with a W.

  19. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:

    The team holds them back to sell to opposing teams fans and ticket brokers but there is no market for them because Atlanta is not good and their fans aren’t expected to travel to have Brady beat them again.

    Waiting to grab mine but we will be going – so excited!!!

    Go Bucs!!!

    So happy to live here again !!!!

    Ticketmaster is scum of the earth. They literally scalp and resell their own tickets. “Platinum tickets” AKA “dynamic pricing” AKA “we’re just gonna jack up the prices immediately and sell them directly to you at onsale”.

    Oh, and they also have a program setup to work directly WITH scalpers too. How effed is that?

    Good thing livenation / ticketmaster hasn’t taken over almost every music venue across the country yet… oh wait…

  22. Beeej Says:

    I couldn’t even get them to return an email regarding individual game tickets

  23. Wesley Says:

    Stadium needs shade, it’s just too damn hot otherwise.

  24. Kenneth Says:

    I just went to the website for the buccaneers on my app, and the only thing I saw were verified resale tickets
    PLENTY at TicketMaster, verified resale and face value tickets, non-resale.–Joe

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    buxszntkt – Sorry, I only do fancy man club seats anymore.

    unbelievable – Yeah, they’re awful. But I’ve never seen that awful before. I always buy fancy man club seats, but I never recall a 20% service fee, and that’s just their fee, you still pay sales tax and a stadium fee too. It was something like $70 in fees on a $210 ticket, so $140 fees for 2 tickets. Exactly what service are they providing me for $140?

    I don’t even mind paying $280 in total for club seats, but not when they’re marked up that much by the scalper Ticketmaster. They’re taking a ton and providing nothing in exchange. The NFL must be getting a huge part of that service fee, there’s no other way to explain it.

    Ticketmaster has plenty of tickets available.
