Tampa Bay Buccaneers Announce Plans to Mitigate Television Blackouts
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced plans to take advantage of The National Football League’s recently-passed measure reducing the percentage of general admission ticket sales needed to avoid local broadcast blackouts of home games. As a result, any 2012 Buccaneer home games that sell 85% of non-premium tickets will be televised locally, rather than the 100% previously required.
“We hope that this move, along with lower ticket prices, starting at $30 for adults and $15 for children, will lead to more televised Buccaneer home games this year,” said Vice President of Business Administration Brian Ford.
The Buccaneers recently announced an initiative designed to sell-out the September 9 home opener versus the division rival Carolina Panthers that offers free parking in select lots, half-off food and non-alcoholic concessions, as well as a giveaway celebrating Ronde Barber’s 200th straight start.
