The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced the dates of 13 practices open to the public.  

In order to take advantage of cooler morning temperatures for players and fans, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have scheduled 12 open practices to begin at 8:45 a.m. that will finish around 10:50 a.m each day, with some ending earlier.

The team will also host a special Military Appreciation Day on Monday, July 31, which will only be open to all members of the military. Season pass members will also enjoy two exclusive practice sessions on Thursday, Aug. 3 and Tuesday, Aug. 8.



Due to ongoing construction at the team's indoor practice facility, parking and entry for fans will be moved to the gate outside of the western fence surrounding One Buccaneer Place. Parking for training camp will be free of charge and fans will not need a ticket to enter. 

Fans can enjoy discounted concessions, merchandise tents offering the latest Bucs jerseys and gear, and appearances by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear.  The camps will also feature the Glazer Family Foundation Vision Mobile, the Street Team RV and Women of Red Zone exhibit. 

Buccaneer players will also sign autographs at the end of each practice. 

“This year’s training camp is one of the most anticipated in recent memory and with 13 practices open to the public, our fans will have plenty of opportunities to come out and be part of the excitement,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “We are thrilled that our fans will continue to have the same great access to our players and coaches that they have enjoyed over the years.”

Those wishing to attend practice sessions at the team’s headquarters, One Buccaneer Place, are encouraged to monitor for updates, as well as follow the team on Twitter at @TBBuccaneers. These outlets will provide camp guidelines, parking information, maps and any schedule updates to make visiting training camp a smooth and enjoyable process.
