More Than 600 Unsold Seats For Bucs’ Home Opener

August 27th, 2022

First, the good news.

As of late this morning, the Bucs have 600-plus unsold tickets for their home opener against Green Bay available on Ticketmaster in the new section behind the south end zone.

That area was added this season — hopefully so Team Glazer can afford more outdoor training camp seating next season, you know, so they can open a practice to the general public.

The bad news is that one ticket in this area of The Licht House (see above) costs more than $350 with taxes and fees.

That’s a lot of glorious Big Storm beer and Hooters wings.

Still, for those who cannot afford season tickets, a window is now open to buy a single-game ticket. The Bucs have decided that the seam seats are worth less than $200 for future games that appear less exciting, such has against Carolina on New Year’s Day.

Have fun shopping!

And mark it down, you can watch the Bucs-Saints road game on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m. with Sage Ira Kaufman and great Bucs fans at the Big Storm Brewery taproom, 12707 49th Street in Clearwater. It’s a great time indoors or on the covered patio. And you can have a hell of a feast with Florida’s best craft beer for less than it costs to park at a Bucs game.

    Geez…in 1977-79, you could buy end zone seats at the Old Sombrero for $5

    This is actually the south end zone. A truly horrible idea that deleted a nice mingling area with concessions and entertainment. It also set off a chain reaction that produced gridlock in the north end zone. It’s supposed to be a one year deal and the tickets are about twice as much as the regular end zone seats. Small wonder they haven’t sold out

    Scotty, I’m old enough to remember them $5 seats also.

    The end zone used to be the cheap seats. That’s where the fun was.

    Why? That’s about as much as they are going on the free market. Look at Stub Hub. $310 a ticket is the cheapest available for 3rd level. That’s not the Glazers setting that…that’s the market setting that price. The Glazers want to cash in on that too, of course.

    It certainly seems likely this is Brady’s final year. Every football fan in Tampa wants to be able tell their grandkids some day that they got to see the greatest football player of all time play as a Buccaneer. Plus this could potentially be the final time we will ever see Brady and Rogers face off. Yeah…you will pay a premium for this.

    I think I’ll pay my mortgage instead.

  11. GOB Says:

    Don’t miss an opportunity to squeeze the last few bucks out of the Brady experience. My guess is that those new seats will be removed in time.

  12. Irishmist Says:

    Some Packer fan will buy them. Hopefully it will be hot enough to weld that fake cheese to their heads.

  13. Steven007 Says:

    Csi, My understanding is that that concession area still exists underneath the stands only inside of course. I can’t confirm that. I’m in the north end zone anyways and much prefer that side even though we have the sun in our face.

    One game, or a year of Sunday ticket? I mean this ain’t hard.

  15. Billyboy2211 Says:

    Too poor watch it in tv or get a better job dont cry they wouldnt sell it if no one was buying poor people are soft now too

    It seems like no one has a clue how much money was lost during the covid scare. There was literally no income without the fans, eating, parking, etc. BUT STILL all bills had to be paid. Electricity, payroll, grounds and building maintenance, etc., etc. A business owner has gotta do what they gotta do

  17. David Says:

    I don’t wanna hear about losing money in Covid… It’s an $18 billion year industry and ticket prices have far outpaced inflation over the last two decades. Astronomically so.
    Taking a family of four to a game in the cheaper seats in the house, with parking and food… $600 in minimum. F that.
    There’s a reason I got rid of my season tickets several years ago
