The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today the dates of 13 practices open to the public, including five on weekend mornings.
In an effort to take advantage of cooler morning temperatures for both players and fans, the team has scheduled 12 of the 13 open practices to begin at 8:45 a.m. and conclude by approximately 10:50 a.m, with some ending earlier. The team will also host a special Military Appreciation Day on Monday, July 31, which will only be open to members of the military. Season pass members will also enjoy two exclusive practice sessions on Thursday, Aug. 3 and Tuesday, Aug. 8.
The first of the 13 open practices takes place on Friday, July 28. Below is the schedule of open practices:
This season, due to the ongoing construction of the team's indoor practice facility, parking and entry for fans will be moved to the gate outside of the western fence surrounding One Buccaneer Place. As in past seasons, parking for training camp will be free of charge and fans will not need a ticket for admittance. Additional offerings will include discounted concessions, merchandise tents offering the newest Bucs jerseys and gear, and appearances by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear. Camp will also feature the Glazer Family Foundation Vision Mobile, the Street Team RV and the Women of RED Zone exhibit, along with Buccaneer players signing autographs following the conclusion of each practice.
"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."
Those wishing to attend practice sessions at the team's headquarters, One Buccaneer Place, are encouraged to monitor www.Buccaneers.com for updates, as well as follow the team on Twitter at @TBBuccaneers. These outlets will provide camp guidelines, parking information, maps and any schedule updates to make visiting training camp a smooth and enjoyable process.
