Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Season Pass Ticket Terms ("Terms").
Season Pass Ticket Terms ("Terms").
By purchasing a season pass ("Pass") from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ("Buccaneers", "we" or "us"), the season ticket holder shown on the invoice ("Member") agrees to these Terms. Neither the Terms nor any invoice sent to Member shall constitute an offer. The Terms shall not be an enforceable agreement, and a ticket subscription purchase or renewal shall not be completed, until both (a) the Member (or an authorized representative thereof) submits it to us with the appropriate acknowledgment and acceptance of the Terms (either by signature or, if on-line, by click acceptance), and (b) the Member thereafter receives a written notice from us confirming season ticket holder status.
Season Pass: The Pass is an indivisible revocable license issued annually by us that provides Member tickets to attend all pre‐season and regular season Buccaneers home games at Raymond James Stadium ("Stadium"). Passes expire after one season and create no rights beyond that season, including no right to renew, or to specific seats. The Pass includes parking if shown on the invoice, which will be distributed electronically. Additional terms, including gameday ticket and parking terms, security and fan conduct policies, health and safety policies and assessments, and applicable bag policies govern use of the Pass. We may at any time change or revoke these Terms, the gameday ticket and parking terms, or applicable fan policies, or add provisions in our discretion. See www.buccaneers.com/terms, and www.raymondjamesstadium.com/stadium-fan-policies/ for current terms.
Pay As We Play Post-Season Tickets: Member may purchase the same ticket(s) to Tampa Bay Buccaneers post‐season games played at the Stadium, with the exception of the Super Bowl. By checking the box on the invoice or other communication, Member agrees to purchase tickets to all available post-season home games at an additional cost above and beyond the Pass. For each post-season home game, Member agrees to pay the post-season ticket cost immediately after we clinch participation in such game. Member's agreement to purchase post-season tickets, and any such tickets Member purchases through this option, are governed by these Terms.
Revocation: We may revoke a Pass at any time. If we revoke Member's Pass because of account ownership disputes or without cause, Member's exclusive remedy is a refund of amounts paid to us for which no corresponding benefits have been provided as determined in the Buccaneers' sole discretion. If we revoke a Pass due to Member's default ("Default"), Member is not entitled to a refund. Default includes (1) violating Ticket Resale or Transfer Limitations (below), (2) failing to make timely payment on the Pass, and (3) violating any other provision of these Terms or any other Buccaneers, National Football League ("NFL"), or Stadium terms or policies, which may be amended from time-to-time, including policies regulating misconduct, drunkenness or disorderly behavior at the Stadium. Member agrees it is impossible to determine at the time Member agrees to these Terms, the damage and loss we would incur due to Default. Therefore, without limiting any of our rights, if Member does not pay us by the due date and does not cure such nonpayment within ten (10) days of written notice of nonpayment, or if the Pass is otherwise revoked due to Default, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to (1) cancel any unissued tickets, (2) deactivate any tickets issued to future games, (3) retain all sums paid, and/or (4) demand payment in full. We have no duty to mitigate damages incurred due to Default. Any delay in enforcing any of our rights under this Agreement shall not constitute waiver of any such rights.
Ticket Resale, Transfer Limitations: The Pass, including privileges granted by the license thereunder, may not be sold, assigned, or transferred without our express written consent, which may be granted, withheld, or conditioned in our sole discretion and such consent shall only be considered once the Pass has been paid in full. Any sale, assignment, or transfer without our express written consent is void. The Pass is an indivisible revocable license. Member acknowledges that the spirit of being a season ticket holder is not financial gain or other benefit by reselling the tickets, but embodies a desire to support the Buccaneers. Member acknowledges that we may monitor resale and/or trade activity. We may revoke the pass if we determine, in our sole discretion, that Member has resold or traded tickets: (i) in violation of any applicable laws; (ii) excessively; (iii) in a way that otherwise violates the spirit of being a season ticket holder; (iv) outside of the ticket resale platforms approved by us; or (v) prior to the Pass being paid in full. See "Revocation" section for consequences of revocation. In addition to the Buccaneers' restriction on the resale or transfer of tickets as provided above, resale is prohibited by Florida law within the Stadium grounds and may result in the automatic revocation of this license, confiscation of tickets, refusal of entry into the Stadium, fine, and/or arrest.
Changes, Exchanges and Refunds: Seat relocation requests are accepted in our discretion. We may relocate Member's seat(s) at any time for any reason, and relocation does not entitle Member to a refund or other remedy if Member is relocated to a seat(s) with a comparable value as determined in our discretion. The date and time of games, opening of the gates, and opponents are subject to change. There are no refunds on Pass or ticket payments, including if Member cannot attend a game or in the event of Pass revocation, except as set forth herein or in our sole discretion.
Relocated or Unplayed Games: If fewer than ten (10) total pre‐season and regular season Tampa Bay Buccaneers games are played at the Stadium during the season due to causes or circumstances within our control, at our sole discretion we will either: (1) reduce the total amount due by the face value of the ticket, as determined by the Buccaneers in its sole discretion, for the game(s) not played at the Stadium (the "Face Value"); (2) credit Member's Pass account for the Face Value; or (3) refund Member the Face Value. If any scheduled Tampa Bay Buccaneers home game at the Stadium is played without spectators, cancelled and not rescheduled, or relocated outside of Tampa, Florida (each, an "Affected Game") due to any cause or circumstance whatsoever beyond our control, including but not limited to strike (including a National Football League Players Association strike), lockout (including an NFL lockout), civil violence, inability to procure material, failure of electricity or other utilities, restrictive governmental laws or regulations promulgated subsequent to the date of this Agreement, riots, insurrection, wars, inclement weather, fire or other casualty, acts of god, acts or threats of terrorism, global health emergencies, pandemics, epidemics and/or actual or anticipated public health crisis' (each a "Force Majeure Event"), then Member remains obligated to pay all sums due under these Terms but we will credit your Pass account for the Face Value of such Affected Game. Any credit hereunder shall be applied towards the payment of season or single game tickets for the immediately succeeding NFL season. Any unused credit will expire after that NFL season and shall be forfeited. If any portion of a Buccaneers home game is played and subsequently cancelled, such game will not be deemed to have been "cancelled" for the purposes of this Agreement.

THE BELOW APPLIES ONLY IF YOU ENROLLED IN THE 12-MONTH PAYMENT PLAN:
12-Month Payment Plan Automatic Renewal
If Member enrolled in the 12-Month Payment Plan, Member agrees that we may, in our sole discretion, automatically renew Member's Pass and Member's agreement to participate in the 12-Month Payment Plan. We have the sole discretion to set the renewal terms and conditions, including at higher prices, on different terms and conditions, or for different seat locations. To prevent auto renewal, provide written notice at any time before the final payment of the current Pass is due. Written notices must be sent to: Guest and Member Relations, attn. Season Pass Cancellation, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, AdventHealth Training Center, One Buccaneer Place, Tampa, Florida 33607. All renewals are subject to these Terms until or unless new terms are issued in conjunction with the new NFL season. If any provision contained in these Terms conflicts with any provision the new terms, the provision contained in the new terms will govern and control.
12-Month Payment Plan Price Increases After Enrollment or Renewal
We set Pass prices annually. The initial disclosure of payments due on the 12-Month Payment Plan is based on the prior season Pass price, which is subject to increase by us in our sole discretion. Once the Pass price is finalized, we will notify Member of the final payment schedule and pricing through a new invoice, email, or other written communication (collectively, "Notification"). If prices are increased, the new payment schedule will have higher monthly payments for the remaining payments. Any balance due will be determined by subtracting the amount already paid for the upcoming full season from the new season pass price.
Once Member enrolls in the monthly payment plan, or Member's enrollment is renewed, Member may not cancel his or her agreement to purchase the Pass, even if we increase the price for the Pass, provided that price increase does not increase the cost of the Pass (excluding parking, taxes or other fees) by more than 5%. If we increase the cost of Member's Pass (excluding parking, taxes or other fees) by more than 5%, Member may cancel Member's Pass by sending written notice to the Buccaneers no later than twenty‐one (21) days after the Notification is sent.
Price Increase Cancellations: In the event member cancels in accordance with these Terms, Member can either (1) use the amount already paid as a credit to purchase single game or group tickets to Buccaneers home games during the upcoming NFL season, or (2) receive a full refund of all amounts already paid. To cancel, notify us in writing at: Guest and Member Relations, Attn: Season Pass Cancellations, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, AdventHealth Training Center, One Buccaneer Place, Tampa, FL 33607. Refunds will not be issued until thirty (30) days after the twenty-one (21) day notice period expires.
