The Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain sensitive in their efforts to re-develop their season-ticket base.
That has led them to announce a new plan in which fans can choose a 12-month payment plan following surveys with current ticket holders.
“The Buccaneers value our Season Pass members and their input, so we're happy to accommodate their wish for more financial flexibility. We're proud of this and the other measures we've unveiled that are aimed at maximizing home field advantage, value, and gameday experience," said Brian Ford, the team’s vice president of business administration in a release.
The Bucs have reduced ticket prices for nearly 80 percent of general admission seats and are working to ensure big crowds at Raymond James Stadium this season. In the past, they offered fans a 10-month payment plan, a departure from what a lot of clubs do. Many teams require all of the money upfront in early spring.
A winning product on the field will sell tickets faster than anything. We’ll see how things go under first-year coach Greg Schiano.
