Taxes to Pay For Most of Raymond James Stadium Upgrades

Raymond James Stadium will receive nearly $19 million in upgrades, with tourists visiting Hillsborough County picking up most of the bill, Mike Salinero of The Tampa Tribune reports.

“It’s to the point where we have to make some major investments back into the building,” said Eric Hart, executive director of the Tampa Sports Authority. “Over the next two years you’ll be starting to see a major overhaul of everything.”

The TSA manages the 13-year-old stadium.

Adding high-definition replays to the scoreboard, which carries a $7.7 million price tag, is part of the improvements that will be made to the stadium by 2013.
