Bucs announce aggressive new season-ticket plan
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cut the prices of some season tickets for the 2011 season as they look to avoid the big problems they had filling Raymond James Stadium this past season for a 10-win club.
According to a release by the team, “tens of thousands” of season tickets have been reduced by up to 20 percent. Adult tickets start as low as $35 and youth tickets (16 and under) are as low as $17.50.
Some parking has been reduced by as much as 40 percent and season-ticket holders will receive 10 percent off all stadium food and beverage purchases. Additionally, the team will continue a 10-month payment plan for season tickets.
Coming off a strong season and with a tough home slate next season that features some good opponents, the Bucs should do much better. They had every home game blacked out in 2010, the only team in the league to have such a problem.
The Bucs will host Dallas, Chicago, Indianapolis, New Orleans and Atlanta, among other teams in 2011.
