One thing to keep in mind this year is that the Bucs are currently constructing an indoor practice facility just outside of the main practice area at One Buc Place. That will lead to a change in where some fans will park and enter the facility for the public workouts.
The parking lot and entry for fans will be moved to the gate outside of the western fence surrounding One Buccaneer Place. As always, parking for training camp workouts will be free of charge and fans will not need a ticket for admittance.
The Bucs will also offer fans discounted concessions, a merchandise tent offering the newest Bucs jerseys and gear, and appearances by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear.
The Glazer Family Foundation Vision Mobile, the Street Team RV and a Women of RED Zone exhibit will also be a part of the training camp experience, and each workout will be followed by a Buccaneer players autograph-signing session.
“This year’s training camp is one of the most anticipated in recent memory and with 13 practices open to the public, our fans will have plenty of opportunities to come out and be part of the excitement,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford.
“We are thrilled that our fans will continue to have the same great access to our players and coaches that they have enjoyed over the years.”
