Fans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp this year can expect a few differences from years past.

First of all, practice starts much later in the day, with the majority of the 15 public practices beginning at 4 p.m., rather than the morning as in years past.

However, on Thursday new head coach Bruce Arians alluded to another big change.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp opens on Friday with later practice times and mobile ticketing

"We're gonna have fun. It's gonna be different when we put the pads on, there's gonna be a lot of hollering and screaming. Ain't gonna be any damn music, so you'll hear some things — maybe put some earplugs on the kids, but it should be fun. They should see guys working their tails off," Arians said.

Attendance and parking for open practices is free and open to all. You just need to get a free digital ticket from the team website.
