The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today announced additional details regarding the team's annual Night Practice to be held at Raymond James Stadium. This year's event will be held on Friday, August 1, with gates opening at 5:00 p.m. for the 7:00-9:30 p.m. practice session.
Night Practice will feature free parking and admission, as well as discounted concessions, player autograph opportunities and appearances by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders. Parking will be offered in Lots 5-10 and 14 starting at 3:30 p.m., with autographs available from 5:15-5:45 p.m.
While autograph sessions with Buccaneers Legends – members of the team's alumni community – are open to all attendees, fans wishing to take part in signing sessions with active players must have an autograph voucher. Vouchers are free, but will be distributed through the box office in the South Plaza starting at 4:00 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis (limit 1 voucher per fan).
When players hit the field to practice under the stadium lights, Buccaneers fans will have the opportunity to watch their team take part in special drills, challenges and competitions, including one-on-one battles, all with live, expert analysis provided by Buccaneers Radio Network play-by-play announcer Gene Deckerhoff and team senior writer Scott Smith.
A fireworks show will follow at the conclusion of the event.
