Buccaneers top of stadium tech charts

NFL American football team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has claimed top spot in a league-wide report on stadium technology experience satisfaction.

It marks the second successive year that the Buccaneers have finished top of the ranking, which was revealed in the NFL’s 2017 ‘Voice of the Fan’ report.

The news comes amid the ongoing $160m investment by the team in renovations at Raymond James Stadium. The Buccaneers have also been the top-rated team in terms of customer service satisfaction among season pass members in four of the past six years.

Raymond James Stadium introduced a new HD video system back in 2016. The system has more than 31,000 square feet of HD video board space and a state-of-the-art sound system. In introducing the system, Raymond James Stadium became the first NFL venue capable of simultaneously presenting up to three separate replay angles and providing fans with an immersive, first-of-its-kind viewing experience.

Raymond James Stadium also allows fans to experience real-time fantasy sports and game-day statistics, live recaps of NFL action and social media applications featuring game-day posts and unique video board filters. Other perks of the stadium include the Buccaneers’ official app, which fans can use to access multiple live camera angles and the Red Zone channel, along with other features.

Last month, the Buccaneers revealed details of new bars that will be installed at Raymond James Stadium as part of the latest renovation work. Bar 76, which has been named in reference to the team’s inaugural 1976 season, is due to be ready in the autumn, with the new East Stadium Club also set to open.
