The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently unveiled “Bucs Beach” outside of Raymond James Stadium; a pregame party area for fans. The new addition follows several new upgrades and renovations at Raymond James Stadium. The franchise’s overall goal is to provide a better experience for fans on gameday. Raymond James Stadium also had an inherent need for new upgrades for fans after the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins renovated their home stadiums.

Bucs Beach is located just outside of the South entrance of Raymond James Stadium and features the following.

  • Live DJ and music before all home games
  • Tailgate games including cornhole
  • Large Adirondack chairs and hammocks
  • A sand play area for kids
  • Photo opportunities on the Bud Light Krewe Ship
  • Food trucks with local food and drink offerings

Bucs Beach opens 3 ½ hours before Buccaneers home games and fans are not required to have a ticket to enter the area. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently implemented a $160M renovation of Raymond James Stadium that included new video boards in each end zone, the creation of Bar 76, and improvements to the East Stadium Club. The Buccaneers have also added a drumline that will resemble the drumline the Carolina Panthers offer at Bank of America Stadium.
