Plenty Of Unsold Bucs Tickets For Sunday; Why Did Some Prices Drop?

September 14th, 2023

It’s about 75 hours until kickoff of the Bucs-Bears home opener in Tampa and the Bucs have loads of tickets available.

Joe’s count shows about 2,000 unsold seats on, the Bucs’ official portal for non-resale tickets.

The cheapest seats shown cost $106.00 plus fees. What surprised Joe is that the cheapest seats 10 days ago were $144.00. Odd.

Did the Bucs slash prices to try and pack the stadium?

Regardless, fans attending should brace themselves for at least 10,000 to 15,000 Bears fans in the house. It won’t be the first time the Tampa Bay offense must prepare for a silent count on its home turf. Joe hopes offensive coordinator Dave Canales is aware of that reality since it would never happen in Seattle.

If you’d rather not dent your credit card bill with a trip to the stadium, enjoy the game at your local Big Storm Brewing Co. taproom or at one of the 11 Tampa Bay area Hooters locations.

    Would be even more Bears fans if game was in December…..

  2. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Back in the day I’d be praying that Culverhouse would buy them by 1pm today to avoid a blackout.

  3. Citrus County Says:

    Dewey Selmon: Just wait, you may see that same situation again soon.

    $106 at cheapest? I know we’re using smaller dollars nowadays, but $85 priced me right out of the stadium back in ’08.

  5. Oxycondomns Says:

    I miss the bears fans changing the tampa chant to tampon. Fights with the different nfc central teams those were the days. And the good seats you could find

  6. Charles Says:

    At $106.00 plus fees, gas, parking, food, beverages, my family of 5 is pushing $1,000. Hahahahaha!

  7. D-Rome Says:

    It wasn’t that long ago you could buy Bucs tickets for under $100 including fees.

  8. Mike C Says:

    NFL tickets are different than baseball tickets….. better = more expensive.

  9. Marine Buc Says:

    “Why did some prices drop?”

    It’s called supply and demand…

  11. HC Grover Says:

    In this inflated economy everyone is BROKE!

  12. HC Grover Says:

    I remember 20 bucs in the parking lot in the 70’s

    Oxy*********…Were I a proprietor of this site and worked my butt off to provide good and interesting content and analysis, I would be disappointed that some of my readers would be seemingly incapable of responding with a thoughtful intelligent comment. DRIVEL belongs at the bottom of a cuspidor.

  14. Mike C Says:

    HC Grover, 70s were 50 YEARS AGO! The price of things go up, will you boomers please adjust and understand that smgdh ffs.

  15. Mike S Says:

    Its all that excitement for Mayfield that’s causing this lackluster demand lol.

  16. Citrus County Says:

    Mike C…. Some of us “Boomers”, likely many of us, understand all to well what is happening. Those such as yourself will soon be blindsided by an adjustment beyond your imagination.

  17. Citrus County Says:

    Mike C… The price of things going up is the consequence of the purchasing power (value) of the Dollar going down. In the near future that purchasing power will descend to ZERO. That is when your blindsided adjustment will take place. Fiat currencies DO NOT last forever. Thousand of years of history prove that. Investigate the circumstances of Argentina if you should desire to protect yourself from said adjustment. Study how the Roman coins were “chipped away”. My comment has nothing to do with the Bucs or football but neither does yours.

  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Stay home. Watch the bucs lose live.

  19. Mike C Says:

    Ok Boomer

  20. Mike C Says:

    Got a old story you should read, it’s called chicken little…. think they made a movie too. Rome fell….but Italy is still a thing.

  21. Ryan C Says:

    It’s the heat. We need shade like they did down in Miami. 1pm games in September are miserable.

  22. Mike Johnson Says:

    Thank God for TV. No way I can afford to attend games. Go Bucs!

  23. NJbucs23 Says:

    $81 on stub hub. Always wait till day of game. They will go down even lower.

  24. Jeff’s grandpa Says:

    Not a chance when so called fans around you tell you you’re being too loud at a damn playoff game

  25. Citrus County Says:

    Mike C… your “unawareness” is on vivid display. But don’t worry because I WILL have the last laugh on you. Your irreverence to your elders doesn’t faze me in the least. I just consider the source. By the way, ” Got a old story ” should be ” Got AN old story “. But what do I know, I’m a chicken little. Did you skip Grammer classes ?

  26. Citrus County Says:

    Mike C… I must confess. Being a Boomer Elder chicken little with almost no experience in the modern world I had to consult the Urban Dictionary to interpret your abbreviated internet slang. Check out the word blasphemy in your dictionary if you own one. It’s a BIG NO-NO.

  27. Citrus County Says:

    Chicken Little is a 1943 short film created by Walt Disney during World War II and directed by Clyde Geronimi. The short was based on the European folk tale “Henny Penny”, known in the United States as “Chicken Little”. It is an anti-Nazi film showing the evils of mass hysteria. (from wikipedia)

    Mike C…I’m GLAD you brought up Chicken Little.

  28. stpetebucfan Says:


    Are you still a Buc’s fan?

  29. Michael Says:

    If you are a Bucs fan and you sell your tickets to a Bears fan, you are a fake fan. I would rather burn my tickets than sell them! Go Bucs! 🏴‍☠️

  30. T. McGee Says:

    No thanks. 90 degree games… been there done that. This game will stink anyway. Ugly win forthcoming. The Bears are not entertaining.

  31. garro Says:

    Home opener not sold out?

    Hmm… Maybe the Glazers need to re-think all those ticket price hikes and start getting reasonable with the cheap seats. It is embarassing when the camera pans the stands and it occasionaly shows a sea of empty seats.

    I’m sure they have a valid business model, but it is not a good look PR wise to the average income folks.

    Mr Glazer you have plenty of Bucs fans in Tampa. Just not so many that have money to put out there when they can barely afford the cost of living in Tampa anymore.

    Go Bucs!

    Former season ticket holder… (the cheap seats)

    Go Bucs!

  32. Bring back the lawn chairs Says:

    Btw, they don’t accept cash. Fwiw. Just sayin.

  33. Bring back the lawn chairs Says:

    I was wondering, since they don’t accept cash at rayjay for game tickets, do they take bit coin, or dogecoin? I know the rays don’t accept cash or bitcoin…. Just sayin.
    Where’s the customer experience in that, as they won’t be able to blame half filled stadiums on the fans imo.

  34. Mike C Says:

    You will probably be dead way before me…… so I will end up with the last Laugh apocalypse Boomer.

  35. Glass Half Full Guy Says:

    I love hearing “OK boomer” from a generation that ate Tide pods. Lol
