Raymond James Stadium Safety Upgrades for 2020 Season

Know before you go - get ready for the game at raymond james stadium

Welcome back to football, Bucs fans!

The excitement of the game will be the same, but many aspects of a gameday experience in-stadium will reflect the new normal. Your health and safety, along with that of our players, coaches, and personnel, is – and always has been – priority number one.

The NFL has been working with all clubs to implement stadium protocols based on current public health recommendations, including from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which are evolving as new information is available.

These new protocols are in place to help you feel confident, safe and comfortable when coming to our stadiums and enjoying a seamless experience – from the parking lot and turnstiles, to the concourses and ultimately, your seats.

However, like each player on a championship team, you play a key role. Because these protocols require everyone's cooperation and teamwork, the Tampa Sports Authority has set out these guidelines to help make this a championship season for all.

Fan Face Coverings

Fan Face Coverings

Face coverings will be mandatory for anyone in-stadium (fans and staff) and must be worn at all times (other than while actively eating or drinking), including during security screening. Look at it as another way to rock your team's colors and be a good teammate – because wearing a face covering not only helps to protect you, but also other patrons.

First Aid

First Aid

If you're in the stadium and begin to feel ill, you should find help immediately. A dedicated isolation area will be available for any fan who begins to feel ill after entering the stadium. The stadium's on-site medical team will be fully prepared to treat you on-site and provide you with personal protective equipment (PPE), if necessary. If you feel ill at any point before leaving or on your way to the stadium, the Tampa Sports Authority asks that you please be a good teammate and stay home.
