Buccaneers unveil latest phase of stadium revamp

NFL American football franchise the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have unveiled the latest round of renovation plans for its Raymond James Stadium, including an 8,000-square-foot sports bar.

The Buccaneers said the fourth phase of the wider $160m (£114.4m/€129.3m) stadium redevelopment will focus on bringing fans a premium, but affordable gameday experience in the new East Stadium Club.

The climate-controlled East Stadium Club and Atrium will offer a premium gameday experience in an indoor/outdoor environment. Tickets will start at $155 per game in the new club.

The cornerstone of the East Stadium Club will be the exclusive 8,000-square-foot, full-service premium sports bar in the East Atrium. It will feature an array of culinary stations plus a wide beer selection.

“This next phase of renovations is part of the Buccaneers organisation’s continued commitment to maintaining Raymond James Stadium as one of the country’s premier sporting venues,” Buccaneers chief operating officer Brian Ford said.

“Last season, we introduced a reimagined West Stadium Club experience that was very well received by our members and this year’s enhancements have been designed to build off that success and bring that elevated gameday experience to fans in the East Stadium Club.”

East Stadium Club members will also benefit from newly padded stadium seating while enjoying additional benefits such as: early entry to the stadium, new boutique concession locations, discounted food and merchandise, as well as autograph opportunities with Buccaneers legends and cheerleaders.
