Bucs Hold Prices Steady On Cheapest Season Tickets

May 12th, 2024

Perhaps you’ve seen the ads online for Bucs tickets starting at $65 per game.

Joe has gotten the emails and seen the digital ads. They apply to season passes — aka season tickets — in certain areas in the 300 level of The Licht House.

The price does not include taxes and fees, which bring the 10-game package to about $792 per ticket for the 2024 season. That’s nine regular season home games plus one in preseason against the Miami Dolphins.

So is that a deal? It depends how you look at it.

Joe thinks it’s a reasonably solid price. Last year, nearly all season tickets in the same areas were $63.90 per ticket plus tax and fees. So that’s only a 1.5 percent increase, which is sort of a drop in price considering inflation has been far more than 1.5 percent.

Overall, the Bucs still have some of the cheapest average ticket prices in the NFL, and for a division winning club that impressed in the playoffs, this particular season ticket price isn’t outrageous.

Of course, that assumes you like heights, appreciate a blazing sunny day and understand you can make some (most?) of your money back on the secondary market selling tickets to games you can’t attend. Joe also will throw in the assumption that you don’t pay to park in stadium lots.

Joe is typing this up now in advance of Wednesday’s schedule release date as a public service for those who will be mad when nearly all the remaining cheap seats are gobbled up in a hurry later in the week.

    It’s not just the ticket price of course…or even the outrageous price for snacks and beverages (this is not just the Bucs…movies..baseball…hockey..State fairs)
    the actual hassle of getting to the stadium…it all adds up.

    But if fan is short for “fanatic” then IMHO these prices are very reasonable given the price of EVERYTHING else.

    My wife and I had season tickets to the Lightning during their first Stanley Cup season and a few seasons prior to that. In the beginning it was fun but by the end it just became a challenge fighting in the parking lot to get out…then the traffic…the drive back to St. Pete.

    The solution…dump the season tickets…take that money and simply pick 2-3 games we wanted to see and then book a room at the nearby Embassy Suites.
    Relax with dinner…then simply walk to the game and back. A very nice experience.

    You typed preseason without using worthless in front of it. There is hope.

    What’s the over/under on the number fat alcoholics that will complain that they can’t afford to drink 13 beers and eat three boxes of nachos because it’s sooooo expensive? I’ll set it at 36.

    I’m in 315, yes it gets hot AF but it is so awesome sitting by the goal line and watching ME 13 housing fools! GO BUCS

    Ticket prices are fair in the cheap seats. Just wish the stadium was covered. Skin cancer is a bitch.

    My couch, the TV and the A/C are paid for, and the view is a lot better. So are the snacks!

    Loyal fan from South Jersey, I come down for home opener every year. I don’t buy my ticket to true morning of the game. I always get very good seats for well under market value price. Yes, it’s hot as hell but there’s no experience like a Bucs home opener in September. Love that heat.

    I’m pondering coming down from VA to see Eagles game, hopefully it’s November/December

    Having a middling journeyman at QB just kills your ability to market the team – not that the morons in the Bucs PR department have a clue on how to sell season tickets. The fact the woman they put in charge there insists on doing crap like calling them ‘season passes’ and talk about the Bucs ‘journey’, ugh, it’s just flat out obvious, like they have no idea who they’re trying to sell tickets to.

    Inflation is hovering at about 3.5 percent hardly the “far more than 1.5 percent,” that Joe is spewing propaganda about. Most of the inflation is coming from two sources, fuel and insurance costs, both home and auto. Medical insurance has been somewhat stagnant. Stick to sports writing Joe, because you stink at being an economist.

    When I went to my first Bucs game it cost me $5 for a lower end zone seat on 1977. Bucs played the Bears and when Gary Huff got hurt after completing seven straight passes, the moronic Tampa Bay fans cheered. The only thing that has changed is the price of the tickets. Unfortunately, the overall intelligence of Buc fans haven’t.

    “Inflation is hovering at about 3.5 percent hardly the “far more than 1.5 percent,” that Joe is spewing propaganda about”

    Which totally explains why damn near everything costs 30-40% more than it did 3 years ago….

    Only “propaganda spewer” I see is the boot licker claiming yearly inflation is actually at 3.5%
