There's a good reason the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and sweating and grinding through three grueling weeks of training camp in Central Florida: There's a packed house waiting for them on game day.
The standard of capacity crowds at Raymond James Stadium will continue into the 2006 season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Saturday that all eight regular season home games have been sold out for the ninth consecutive season.
The team put single-game tickets on sale Saturday morning and saw the remaining inventory of regular-season seats snapped up immediately.
"We're very excited to report that we have a sellout once again," said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Eric Land. "The limited number of single-game tickets on sale this morning were sold in a matter of minutes. What we do have left are a few – a very few – number of tickets for our two preseason home games."
The Buccaneers will kick off the preseason on Friday, August 11 against the New York Jets. The second preseason home game, against Miami, is scheduled for Saturday, August 19. Tickets for these two games may still be purchased by calling Ticketmaster or by visiting ticketmaster.com.
Tampa Bay's first regular season home game is Sunday, September 10 against the Baltimore Ravens.
