Biggs: Bucs freeze ticket prices
Coming off their worst season in nearly two decades, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to freeze the majority of their ticket prices for the 2010 season and reduce some, the club announced this morning.
General ticket prices for Raymond James Stadium will range from $42 to $99 with seven other tiers in between, and the Bucs are adding a new general ticket price of $35 for the season. The team will continue to offer a discount to season-ticket holders over individual game pricing.
“We recognize this is a challenging economy for our fans,” said Jason Layton, the team’s senior director of sales and finance. “With new lower ticket prices there is a seating option for all of our fans to become a season ticket holder.”
The Bucs are trying to sell promise entering a second season with Raheem Morris as the coach. They have a young quarterback in Josh Freeman, five draft picks in the first 99 in April, and a large gap to close between them and the NFC South champion New Orleans Saints.
