Edward Glazer
Co-Chairman

Entering his 23rd season with Tampa Bay in 2017, Co-Chairman Edward Glazer oversees many aspects of the team’s day-to-day business operations.

Recognizing that the fans are of the utmost importance to the team’s success, Glazer sets the tone for Tampa Bay’s commitment to its fan base. In recent years, Glazer has overseen a complete overhaul of the team’s marketing and sales departments, including the launch of a new Member Relations Department created exclusively for Buccaneers Season Pass Members.  The department offers an array of off-the-field benefits and unparalleled customer service which has resulted in the team earning the No. 1 ranking in overall customer satisfaction among all 32 NFL clubs in four of the past five seasons.

Glazer scrutinizes every detail of the business operations at One Buccaneer Place to ensure that fans are getting the best possible Buccaneers experience and value. In an effort to make season pass membership even more accessible to fans, Glazer introduced the NFL’s first 12-month interest-free payment plan.  

With a focus on continually improving the gameday experience for Buccaneers fans, Glazer was instrumental in the renovation of Raymond James Stadium. The renovation is expected to exceed $150 million and will be completed in four phases. The first phase was completed for the Buccaneers’ 2014 season and included the renovation of all main level concession stands.  The second phase was completed for the 2016 season and was highlighted by the installation of over 29,000 square feet of new, state-of-the-art HD video boards in each end zone, all new ribbon boards and four HD tower video displays in each corner of the stadium. Also included was the incredible new surround sound system, a complete renovation of all luxury suites and the introduction of the exclusive all-new, all-inclusive Hall of Fame Club. 

Phase three of the construction was completed this past offseason in time for the 2017 season.  The latest enhancements are highlighted by a completely redesigned West Stadium Club, a new team retail store, expansion of the highly successful Hall of Fame Club, and a new home team locker room. The redesigned West Stadium Club now incorporates modern style with high-end finishes and furnishings, while providing more than 60,000 square feet of total lounge space – an increase of more than 25 percent from the original event space. Additional new amenities include a centrally-located, state-of-the-art bar featuring a pair of video walls, two oversized 26-foot-by-15-foot video walls located at each end of the Club, and the installation of 178 new 4K video displays throughout the space.

In addition, during the 2017 offseason, the Buccaneers constructed a state-of-the-art indoor practice facility at One Buccaneer Place that offers players and coaches the flexibility to practice indoors during times of inclement weather. The 100,000-square foot facility features a full length artificial surface field and more than 3,000 seats for fans to view select training camp practices.

Prior to the 2014 season, the Buccaneers unveiled a new uniform created by Glazer in collaboration with Nike and the NFL. The new uniform features a bold look with custom name and number fonts as well as the first chrome facemasks on an NFL helmet. The enhanced logo – which features an enlarged flag and more menacing skull design – honors the Buccaneers’ rich tradition while boldly bringing the team into the future through a modern industrial aesthetic. The team also energized its color scheme with a richer shade of pewter juxtaposed with a brighter, more vibrant shade of red, as well as more prominently featuring “Bay Orange” as a primary trim and accent color.

The Glazer family has been devoted to building a winning team from their earliest days as owners. Under the Glazers, Tampa Bay has enjoyed its most successful stretch as a franchise, posting seven playoff appearances with four division championships in addition to a world championship in Super Bowl XXXVII, a 48-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders in San Diego on January 26, 2003.

With another Super Bowl victory as the ultimate goal, the Glazers have made bold, educated moves to assemble a winning franchise. In 2014, Glazer and his siblings hired General Manager Jason Licht and in 2016 they promoted offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter to head coach. The Buccaneers have drafted key pieces of the future while extending contracts for homegrown talent and securing important free agents. In 2015, the team’s draft produced four rookies who made immediate impacts as starters: quarterback Jameis Winston, offensive linemen Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet, and linebacker Kwon Alexander.

The team has also extended contracts for defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (2014) and linebacker Lavonte David (2015), ensuring that the vital core of the team’s foundation for future success stays intact. In 2017, the team landed one of the most prolific playmakers available in free agency with the signing of three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

Away from the football field, Glazer is also heavily involved in charitable endeavors. He is Co-President of the Glazer Family Foundation and helps oversee Foundation programs that have provided Bay Area residents with millions of dollars in funding for programs, tickets, grants and in-kind contributions.

The Glazer family was previously honored with the prestigious Gonzmart Family Ambassador of the Year Award, as part of the 26th annual National Tourism Week, presented by Tampa Bay & Company. The Ambassador Award was presented to the Glazers in recognition of their efforts to help the tourism industry in the Tampa Bay Area, as well as their impact on the community overall.

The Glazer Children’s Museum located in downtown Tampa opened to rave reviews, earning recognition by Women’s Day Magazine as one of the Top 10 family museums in the country. For its wide-reaching efforts, the Tampa Bay Sports Commission named the Glazer Family Foundation the Foundation of the Year.

Glazer and his wife, Shari, are committed to providing aid and assistance to many causes, including the Elton John AIDS Foundation, The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and the Zimmer Children’s Museum among others. Shari Glazer serves on the board of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles.  Ed and Shari also launched the “B.F.F. Bear Program” which has given thousands of free teddy bears to pediatric patients at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, and the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital.

In addition to his duties with the Buccaneers, Glazer serves on the board of the family-owned Manchester United Soccer Club – the world’s most popular team with over 660 million fans worldwide. Under the Glazers’ ownership, the club has won the Premier League title in five of the last 10 seasons and has also played in three Champions League final matches, winning the 2008 Champions League title.  In 2016, Manchester United took home the FA Cup and in 2017 were the Europa League Winners.  Glazer is also founder and CEO of US Property Trust which owns and operates real estate throughout the United States.

A proud Ithaca College alumnus, Glazer was thrilled to open the Edward and Shari Glazer Arena on the school’s campus. Glazer and his wife Shari have three daughters.
