Raymond James Stadium Safety Upgrades for 2020 Season
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.
Parking Lots Open - 3 Hrs Before Kick-Off
Club Gates Open – 2.5 Hrs Before Kick-Off
Stadium Gates Open – 1.5 Hrs Before Kick-Off
Player Warm-Ups – 1 Hrs Before Kick-Off
All tickets and parking will be mobile and touchless ticket scanners will allow guests to enter the stadium faster. Note: All guests in attendance, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
Face coverings are recommended for everyone indoors (fans and staff) and should be worn at all times (other than while actively eating or drinking.) For those outdoors (including suites where windows open), masks are optional for those who are fully vaccinated and recommended if not fully vaccinated. 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.
Staff (regardless of vaccination status) will wear face coverings in inside locations at the Stadium. Additionally, staff that is not fully vaccinated will wear face coverings in the outdoor sections of the stadium.
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.
The Tampa Sports Authority is taking cleaning and disinfection to the next level. All "high touch" surfaces in stadium common areas will be cleaned before, during and after each game or stadium event. "High touch" surfaces include door handles, elevator buttons, handrails, sink handles, toilets, ATMs and other touch screens, turnstiles, vestibules, and water fountains.
Touchless fixtures in all restrooms (sinks, paper towel dispensers, urinals and toilets).
