In pursuit of this year's Lombardi Trophy, the Bucs still have a shot at home playoff games
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that current Buccaneers season ticket holders are being notified by mail of procedures for priority purchase of Buccaneers playoff tickets.
To prepare for the logistics of potentially hosting two playoff games, the Buccaneers have been required by the National Football League to distribute postseason ticket information to 2001 season ticket account holders. All playoff ticket prices, as established by the NFL, remain the same as last season.
If Tampa Bay qualifies for a home playoff game, it would be held during either the NFC Wild Card weekend (January 12-13, 2002) or the NFC Divisional Playoff weekend (January 19-20). The exact date and time will be determined by the NFL following the completion of the regular season. The possibility of the NFC Championship Game being played in Tampa on Sunday, January 27, also exists.
Ticket prices, as determined by the NFL, have been set at $35, $45, $60 and $80 for the Wild Card or Divisional games. The NFC Championship Game prices would be $40, $55, $73 and $95.
"While we understand the timing of the playoff invoices occurs during the holiday season, our organization and other NFL teams in contention for playoff spots are following league-mandated directives as they relate to tickets for the postseason," said Mike Newquist, Tampa Bay's Director of Ticketing and Luxury Suite Relations. "The potential remains for the Buccaneers to host two playoff games, and this procedure ensures all season ticket holders have the opportunity to enjoy the postseason at Raymond James Stadium."
Dates for single-game ticket sales to any Buccaneers home playoff games will be announced at a later date by the NFL and the Buccaneers.
