The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are seeking a fourth straight NFC South Division title, will begin their preparations for the 2024 season when they launch training camp in late July. The following weeks of intense football activity will include 10 practices open to fans at the AdventHealth Training Center, including two designated for the general public.

The Buccaneers will begin training camp practices on Wednesday, July 24, with a five-day acclimation period for the players, which includes unpadded workouts gradually increasing in length. Included in that stretch is a practice open to the general public on Thursday, July 25. The first full-pads, full-contact practice will occur on Monday, July 29, coinciding with the first session open exclusively to Krewe Members.

The Buccaneers have high expectations for the 2024 season after making the playoffs in each of the last four years, including a run to Super Bowl victory in 2020. The team signaled its intent to battle for another championship this season by re-signing such key figures as quarterback Baker Mayfield, wide receiver Mike Evans, linebacker Lavonte David, safety Antoine Winfield Jr. and kicker Chase McLaughlin. All of those previous playoff campaigns began with an all-in commitment in training camp, an experience they shared with the team's fans.

"We look forward to once again welcoming our fans back to the Advent Health Training Center for the start of training camp as we prepare for another memorable season of Buccaneers football," said Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. "Our players and coaches love the added energy that our fans bring during training camp and this season we have raised the number of open practices to 10 in order to accommodate even more fans."

Seven of the open practices will be devoted exclusively to Krewe Members, suite owners, corporate partners and other select groups. All but one of the 10 workouts will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will be held on the practice fields behind the AdventHealth Training Center, with fans enjoying covered bleachers. On Tuesday, July 30, the Buccaneers will take their work inside the team's indoor practice facility, beginning at 7:00 p.m.; that practice is open to Krewe Members. Earlier that day, there will be an autograph session with players from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m, which will require a separate ticket from the one that gains entry to the evening practice. Krewe members will receive invites in tenure order to the autograph event later in July.

The complete list of practice dates open to members and other specialty groups is below:

On Sunday, July 28, the Buccaneers will partake in Back Together Weekend, a league-wide initiative that celebrates local communities with club-led fan events. The practice will be open to Jr. Bucs Fan Club members, local youth flag football league participants, and guests from the Special Olympics who will participate in post-practice drills with the players. Families with Buccaneers fans 14-and-under are still eligible to sign up and join the Jr. Bucs Fan Club.

On Thursday, August 1, the Buccaneers will host a special viewing of practice for the annual Women of Red Day at Training Camp, presented by AdventHealth, to highlight and celebrate female fans. The team's final open practice date will be Wednesday, August 7, when it hosts military personnel for an exclusive outing and viewing opportunity for Military Day, presented by USAA. Scheduled experiences for Military Day include a welcome address, a National Anthem performance, a special demonstration by the United States Coast Guard, and a post-practice USAA combine in the indoor practice facility.

A digital ticket – available through the Ticketmaster account manager – will be required for entry to all practice sessions. As in previous seasons, there will be a reservation fee for tickets with proceeds benefitting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation. Tickets for Krewe Members will be available starting Tuesday, June 25, with general admission tickets going on sale Thursday, June 27. As in years past, access to the member practices will be granted on a first-come basis and prioritized by tenure. General tickets are on sale now, click to view.

Parking is located in Lot 14 off Himes Ave, across from Raymond James Stadium. Lots will open 1.5 hour prior to practices, while gates will open one hour before the scheduled start time. As in past seasons, parking for training camp will be free of charge. There will also be a no-bag policy in effect, with the exception of small clutch-style purses (4.5"x6x.5").

Buccaneers fans will be able to purchase official team merchandise from the Fanatics Buccaneers Team Store that will be located on-site during training camp. As in previous seasons, a Fan Activation Zone will also be offered and will include local food offerings and appearances by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders, Captain Fear, Buccaneers Promo Team and Pirate Krewe. Additional activities include the Jr. Bucs Kids Zone, the Bucs Street Team RV, and various Buccaneers sponsor activations.

For fans unable to attend, Buccaneers Senior Writer Scott Smith and Team Reporter Casey Phillips will host Training Camp Report, featuring guests and offering fans a chance to view the beginning of each day's practice virtually. All fans will be able to watch throughout training camp on, the team's YouTube channel, and through the Buccaneers app.
