Bucs Will Play Seahawks In Munich

May 4th, 2022

Opponent in Munich set.

It’s official. The time, date and opponent for the Bucs when they play the first NFL game on German soil is locked in.

The Seahawks will dodge the possibility of playing a game in 90 degrees and 90 percent humidity. The Bucs and Seahawks will face each other Nov. 13 at 9:30 a.m. Tampa time for the first NFL regular season game in Germany.

In Munich, that will be a 3:30 p.m. kickoff.

The announcement came this morning on NFL Network.

Bucs football in the morning? Get your strudel ready. Joe wonders what Big Storm will add to the menu for a fun morning watch party.

    Blah. I’d MUCH prefer the game be played at Ray Jay.

  2. rriddler Says:

    I plan on attending this game.

  3. Evolvingbucsfan Says:

    At least it doesn’t count as a home game. That being said because of the 17 game schedule we have 8 home games and 9 away. Does that flip flop ever year??? just curious, because if we had 9 home and 8 away the following year would seem fair.

  4. PassingThru Says:

    And wouldn’t you know, they schedule it six weeks after Oktoberfest.


  5. Sean Says:

    At least it should be a relatively easy game. Seattle should be pretty bad this year.

  6. Richard Dickson Says:

    Nice long flight for Seattle too.

  7. Bucsfanman Says:

    Nothing says NFL football like a game in Germany(?)!!!

  8. Gbobucsfan Says:


    What do you mean it doesn’t count as a home game?

  9. tampabayallday Says:

    Ez win. Run the damn ball.

  10. Joe Says:

    Nice long flight for Seattle too.

    11+ hours!

  11. uncommon Says:

    direct from Tampa to Frankfurt, 3 hour train to Munich. EZ PZ we’ll be there.

  12. RPK Says:

    Fly 11+ hours to play at 6:30 AM pacific.

    Brutal for Seattle.

  13. Goatfarmer Says:

    I don’t like it. Overseas games are not the Bucs thing. Whatever.

    Next time Glazers, do it as a road team. Giving up a home game in our stadium is stupid.

  14. Evolvingbucsfan Says:

    Gbobucsfan, in years past we have traveled over seas to play and counted as one of our Home games, sucked because season ticket holders miss out on games like that and basically long flight for the team ect. just because its over seas doesn’t mean it counts as away.

    The Bucs away opponent is Seattle this year. Hope this helps clarify things.

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    At this point…..I have the Seahawks marked off as a win for the Bucs….believe it or not, one of our easier games…..and playing in Munich won’t change that…..

    Ziege (the GOAT) will shine……

  16. webster Says:

    This game in germany does count as one of the bucs 9 home games. Not sure what you are talking about

  17. German Buc Says:

    @Evolving: SEA would have been a home game against NFCW (the other is LAR), the two away games are @ARI and @SF. The Bucs changed their website.

  18. Evolvingbucsfan Says:

    “The Bucs changed their website.”

    FIGURES!!! their site says away.

    Danke Sehr German Buc

  19. Buczilla Says:

    We should clobber these dudes, but I worry about our history against bad quarterbacks…

  20. FortMyersDave Says:

    It sets up for a late bye week for the Bucs but I hate the fact the Bucs give up another home game again. It seems like the Jags are the only other team that is the home team for international games. On paper the Bucs should be big favorites but the Bucs are 0 for 3 in these international games so I really hope this game does not come back to bite the Bucs and cost them home field advantage if they make the playoffs as predicted. According to the schedule the Saints and Packers are joining the Jags in playing a home game at Tottenham, kind of surprised the Packers are hosting the Giants as I thought they were like the Cowboys in that they would never willingly give up a home game.

  21. itsgoodtobetheking Says:

    Not sure what the confusion is all about. Game is in Germany. Bucs are considered the “Home” team. Move on.

  22. BucBrady Says:

    Looks like I’m making this game!

  23. SKBucsFan Says:

    Seattle? Doesn’t seem like a match to generate excitement.

  24. BucFanforLife Says:

    Can they bring back NFL Europe so we can have all of our home games in our home stadium please.. sheesh

  25. GOB Says:

    For Christ sake, just stick a team in Europe, London preferably. This is a pain in the ass for everyone involved. If the NFL owners really want to expand the spot globally, a team in Mexico or Canada would make sense too.

  26. Fritz50@aol.com Says:

    I’m getting real tired of losing a precious home game to an overseas venue. Just wondering who it’s always the. Bucs who lose a home game.

  27. Colin in Canada Says:

    This also means that the Bucs will most likely have a week 11 bye week because the bye is always after an international game (I think).

  28. FortMyersDave Says:

    GOB, I have heard people from the Jacksonville area say that they would not be surprised if Kahn tried to move the Jags to London as they always give up a home game at the Gator Bowl to play there, even more often than the Bucs give up a home game. Heck, Kahn tried to buy Wembley Stadium a few years back. One radio guy up in Gainesville or Jacksonville suggested this: the Jags play 4 games in London in 4 weeks where 2 or 3 times they would be the home team and then they get a bye week after the 4th game and return home. The Jags would still play 5 to 7 games in Jacksonville. Not sure if the NFL would go for it but if the Jags are willing to give up multiple home games for the coin, why not? I’m just tired of the Bucs always giving up their home games, I doubt if you’d see Jimmy Jones giving up a home game in the “House that Jones built”. I wonder what benefits the Glazers get by doing this????
