Last year, all of the Tampa Bay Buccaneer training camp practices were open to the public. The problem was that fans couldn't see much of what was going on across the complex, and the special teams were usually closest to the fans.
This year, fewer practices will be open to the public, but team spokesman Jonathan Grella says the fan experience will be better.
"Incorporating fan feedback and an organizational review of last year's inaugural Training Camp at One Buc Place, we have designed a more streamlined public schedule with more entertaining views, action, and access," said Grella. "This year's public offering provides the up-close, full-team, padded practices -- as well as more extensive autograph and photo opportunities -- that our fans most enjoy. We will closely monitor camp and gladly open additional dates, if needed."
Three of the seven open practices will be held on weekends, including the first two days of camp: July 31 and and August 1.
Here's the schedule of practices open to you:
July 31: 10:20 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
August 1: 2:30 p.m.-5 p.m.
August 2: 10:20 a.m.-12:0 p.m.
August 4: 10:20 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
August 5: 2:30 p.m.-4:35 p.m.
August 6: 10:20 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
August 7: 7 p.m.-9 p.m. (Raymond James Stadium)
Fans interested in advance free tickets to training camp must first register for the One Buc Club on the team's website. Free tickets will be available on-site, but only if space is available.
