Buccaneers-Falcons Game Is NOT Sold Out

October 6th, 2022

A review of Ticketmaster.com this evening reveals that official game tickets for Sunday’s Bucs-Falcons clash (not verified resale tickets) are available throughout The Licht House, also known as Raymond James Stadium.

So the game is not sold out. Ticketmaster is the Buccaneers’ official ticket seller.

Game tickets at $85.00 plus fees and $114.00 plus fees in the upper deck are for sale as of 5:35 p.m. And they are not just stray single seats; these are pairs and larger group options together.

It feels like a bit of a surprise when you consider how Bucs officials were talking about unprecedented ticket demand this offseason, and how the team added more than 3,500 expensive seats in the south end zone for the 2022 season.

Rows of those new seats are available for Sunday at $150 per ticket plus fees.

Is it a coincidence that the Bucs are riding a three-game home losing streak?

Less than two hours south of the stadium, loads of residents are without power because of Hurricane Ian. Joe thinks it would be a hell of a gesture if Team Glazer took whatever tickets are still available on Friday and established a system to give those tickets to people who can prove they reside in specific storm-ravaged zip codes.

    Yeah, give them free tickets, and sell them some $18 warm beer.

  2. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Maybe the game is not sold out because we have lost 3 straight games at home.
    2 lost games this year and the last game from a year ago.
    But we should beat the Falcons, right ?
    Go Bucs!

  3. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I haven’t been to a Bucs’ home game in 25 years.
    Every couple years I price tickets/parking/concessions and end up saying “hell no”
    The value just isn’t there.

  4. Mike C Says:

    DooooshLaRue….. listening to your favorite band on the rain or watching them on YouTube is NOT the same as being at the event, price is way better at home, but Nothing like being at a game.

  5. ClwJB Says:

    The high school looking bleachers are an eye sore for sure – the plastic bag lined tunnels beneath appear very narrow and unsafe for thousands of people

    This was definitely a money grab attempt that has limited the amenity access and flow of people

    The opposite end zone patio is nearly im-passable the entire game, now our side is cut off too – very bad idea

  6. theghost Says:

    just go old school and leave them in windshields

  7. Buczilla Says:

    I never expect the Glazers to do right by our community (because they rarely do), but if they do give tickets away to those most impacted by hurricane Beckles, I will happily sing their praises.

  8. DoooshLaRue Says:


    With a 171-192-1 all-time home record, the chances of watching them win is not very good.
    I went to a lot of home games from 1976-1997 and got to see our win against KC in the rain to get in to the playoffs and was there for our playoff win over Philly and the loss to the Rams in the NFC Championship game.

    I consider myself lucky to have been there for all that.
    I just don’t see the value with the current price gouging for an iffy product.

    I’ve been to stadiums around the league and the Bucs stadium represents very well. No it’s not a zillion dollar stadium like the newest ones are. But it’s well kept and very easily navigable. I’ve been a long time season ticket holder so my ticket prices are actually very reasonable compared to the newer ones. So they do reward loyalty in that respect. If I were to give up my tickets, they would instantly go on sale nearly double my price. The upgraded the jumbo’s a few years ago and there’s still among the largest ones in the league. And you can actually tailgate here! That is nearly impossible in a good number of stadiums.

  10. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Agree about the poorly constructed new extra seating area….it’s almost impossible to walk across the stadium on the opposite side of the pirate ship now.

    I always said that you could give a spoiled brat $5 a day for 364 days and not give them money on the 365th day and the brat really doesn’t understand. You fans are the same way. You’re bitching and whining about the freak’n stadium of all things. You’re throwing your own team under the bus. When Tommy Boy first came to Tampa, the Bucs couldn’t shove their finger up their own arse if they used both hands. Pitiful

    How much is parking? Beers? Snack items? IE What is the actual price of the “Bucs experience”? People’s disposable income has taken a hit with inflation and they are making typical consumer choices.

    I remember when I first moved down here. I was living in Brandon in a typical middle class subdivision. My neighbor across the street was a cool guy and he had been a starting catcher for Penn State. He was a talented ballplayer.

    I asked him if he was looking forward to going to Ray’s games? Are you kidding he replied. He had two kids and with he and the wife that represented 4 tickets.
    Drinks and snacks and at the time parking meant that a single game experience was just out of his budget range.

    I get that sports teams are just like any business…they’ll charge what the market will bear. I enjoy the Bucs but forgive me if I do not shed a tear for the Glazers on this one.

  14. Elita Vita Says:

    Can’t help but laugh at the picture for this article showing Jon Gruden’s name in the ring of honor. Nicely done!

  15. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Not everyone, has an extra $10 or $20 laying around, to splurge on a football game.

  16. Goatfarmer Says:

    No wonder.

  17. Defense Rules Says:

    St Pete … I agree with you. Moved back to the Brandon area in 1995 & got season tickets when RayJay opened. Kept them for about 20 years but got tired of the annual 10% price hikes AND losing seasons. Bought a really nice big screen TV with the money I saved and never looked back.

    Still try to go to 1 or 2 games each year, but it’s not the same as ‘the good old days’ when Sapp, Lynch, Brooks, Ronde & others owned the field. Way too much commercialism nowadays (‘Who Let the Dogs Out’ has been replaced by fans picking the best of 3 songs that I’ve never heard before). Oh well, watching the Bucs on TV is a lot cooler & the drinks aren’t nearly as expensive. And I don’t even get wet when it rains.

  18. adam from ny Says:

    well i say give them tickets and a free beer each at consessions, if they can furnish an id in those specific zip codes that got ravaged, once inside the stadium…

    There are a lot of reasons but the Biden administrations attack on the energy industry which lead to decimating the American public with a preventable recession and unnecessary massive inflation does not help.
    I am not taking a family of 4 and spending $800-$1000 for crap seats and overpriced food and beer

  20. Brady fan Says:

    Now I want Brady to leave Bucs right now. Brady should be in Miami not in tampa. Brady would not be facing divorce

  21. Redeemer Says:

    Don’t know the area well, but it sounds like lots of transplants in the Tampa area. The weather is a big hurdle to overcome. Lots of stuff to do when it’s nice all the time. If not mistaken Ray Jay was built around the same time as Gillette. These newer stadiums have the whole shabang. Places for the kids to play, all kinds of stuff. NFL football is best on TV anyway. With the way high def is going, soon it’ll look like you’re there.

  22. Will M Bucs fan in Cali Says:

    Went to my first Bucs game at RayJay (go to Bucs games on the west coast) this past weekend against the Chiefs and holy crap is there a ton of transplants and fans of the opposing team. Loved RayJay but getting an Uber after the game is pretty much impossible and I can see parking near RayJay being an absolute nightmare to get out. It wasn’t cheap which I can see being a factor and I’m sure it being the Falcons who’s fans don’t travel and don’t have the star power has something to do with it.

  23. tampabayallday Says:

    The OC is pretty bad

  24. Jmarkbuc Says:


    The energy industry is booking RECORD profits. “Unleash American energy” is just another lame brained slogan with absolutely 0 basis in fact.

    The Buccaneers have been overcharging for years, regardless of who is in office.

  25. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Why would you have to show proof of residency when you don’t need it to vote?

  26. Oneilbuc Says:

    I wish I lived in Tampa because I would be their this sunday to support the team. For the fans on here that can afford to go to the game and you don’t have a emergency or something like or your church get out to late you should be at the game Sunday because I would. My church let out at 11 30 am in Houston so that’s 12: 30 in Tampa I would be at that game bro . Where all the bucs fan who be talking about how much they love the team?? And that’s only for the ones who can afford it. I ain’t mad at the ones who can’t because I know they’re going to support the team by watching it on TV wish means rating. Y’all should be there if you can go!!

  27. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Did Kamala write your post for you OhKneel?

  28. Joe Says:

    holy crap is there a ton of transplants

    That’s Florida! 🙂 It’s the melting pot of the melting pot.

    If you know someone that was born in Florida, pretty safe bet his/her parents weren’t.

    Joe once met a chick who said she was a sixth-generation Floridian. Her ancestors came to Florida before the Civil War. That’s a rare bird.

  29. Wild Bill Says:

    What a bunch of whiners! 76% of the season still remains. 2-2 is not bad considering the injuries and the opponents. 5-2 is still very possible. Especially as the rookies get more experience and the wounded get back.

  30. Rod Munch Says:

    I can barely remember the last time I went to a game and sat up in the peasant seating. It was the Packers @ Bucs in 2002, the famous Warren Sapp ‘keep your head on a swivel’ game. But being up the peasant seating means you couldn’t really tell what was happening – I had no idea about the controversy until I got home and rewatched the game on my VCR.

    But thankfully I’m a fancy man now and don’t need to be surrounded by the welfare slobs anymore. I couldn’t even imagine going back to the upper deck seating, they probably still have urinal troughs up there.

  31. Bucschamp Says:

    It’s because of the hurricane. Not fun to enjoy a game in these tough times

  32. Alanbucsfan Says:

    The Falcons have been a weak draw at RayJay for a long time.
    I can remember going to a Bucs v Falcons game in the Raheem Morris era with 20,000 empty seats in the stands- Bucs won that game pre – Freeman meltdown.

  33. Gbobucsfan Says:

    A couple hundred bucks of disposable income is hard to find these days.

  34. Wayne Perez Says:

    Bugzilla you’re a idiot the Glazier s do alot for the community get you’re facts right moron

  35. mark2001 Says:

    The Bucs seem to play their worst football at home. So is it surprising that fans would be hesitant to pay top dollar to see the product they put on the homefield on game day? Seems if someone wants to see the best side of the team, they would be better off traveling to a road game. Hurts me to say this. But it seems to be true.

  36. mark2001 Says:

    Yeah Chris… I think that is really it. I think it is more about not wanting to watch them watch them lay another proverbial egg in our own stadium.
