VIA TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS COMMUNICATIONS -
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today the team’s training camp schedule, which will feature a total of 12 practices at the Advent Health Training Center that will be open for viewing to season pass members, premium seat holders, Stadium Club members, luxury suite owners and corporate partners. Similar to last year, access to the practices will be granted on a first-come basis and prioritized by tenure.
All of the team’s 12 viewable practices will take place in the morning, with the first 10 beginning at 8:30 a.m. The final two, which feature joint sessions with the Miami Dolphins, will start at 10 a.m. All practice sessions are scheduled to be held outside on the primary practice fields at AdventHealth Training Center and will feature covered bleacher seating for those in attendance.
A digital ticket – available through the Ticketmaster account manager for all members – will be required for entry to all practice sessions. As in previous seasons, there will be a $5 reservation fee per ticket with proceeds benefitting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation to uplift our community, inspire our youth and drive social change through programs that enrich the lives of families in our region.
“We are excited to offer our Krewe Members and corporate partners the opportunity to once again come out and experience the start of our team’s preparations for the upcoming 2022 season,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “Training camp is always one of the most anticipated times of the year for our season pass members and their passion during these practice sessions always adds to the energy level at practice for our players. We also look forward to continuing our long-standing tradition of honoring our military and celebrating with our community partners on special days set aside exclusively for them.”
The team’s first practice of training camp will be on Wednesday, July 27. The second annual Training Camp: Back Together Saturday, a league-wide initiative, will take place on Saturday, July 30, and the first fully padded, full-contact practice will be on Monday, August 1. The team will also host joint practices with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday, August 10, and Thursday, August 11.
