Buccaneers Season Tickets Available to the Public

Today’s Tampa Tribune reports that the Bucs for a first time have season tickets available for the public to purchase. Here is the report:

After trumpeting a waiting list thousands strong for almost a decade, the Buccaneers now say fans can purchase 2009 season tickets immediately. A harsh economy has whittled away at Tampa Bay’s season-ticket base, and the Bucs are expected to announce Friday that seats at Raymond James Stadium are now available to the general public without a wait. “We’re very committed to our fans, and you can see that in what we’ve done to accommodate them,” said Jason Layton, Tampa Bay’s senior director of sales and finance. “We’ve had really good renewals this year and we’re pretty pleased, but we are going to make season tickets available to the public without the wait.” During the NFL meetings in California last month, Bucs co-chairman Joel Glazer acknowledged Tampa Bay could no longer afford to proceed with business as usual. “There’s no question the economy has had an effect on sports and we’ve seen it with the Buccaneers,” Glazer told The Tribune. “Things are tough right now and a lot of families have been affected. Our season-ticket base has been affected. We have to make it easier for our fans to enjoy the Buccaneers. We’re looking at things a little differently.”
