The Buccaneers joined the NFL in 1976, alongside the the Seattle Seahawks. While Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets offered fans a chance
to support the team in person, their early history is marked by periods of extended
losing streaks as the franchise spent the majority of their early seasons struggling to
become competitive. Things have turned around for the Buccaneers since their rough
initial start, and in 2002, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets offered fans a chance to see
the team triumph over the Oakland Raiders, emerging as Super Bowl Champions for the first
time. Such an achievement means all the more for a team that was unable to secure
their first victory until 13 weeks into their second season of play and is a testament to
the support of their die hard fan base.
The Buccaneers held the unenviable title of the least single season wins in NFL history with their 0-14 1976 season. They
were surpassed by the only team to lose 16 regular season games, the 2008 Detroit Lions. With their first win coming in 1977, the team
was able to give fans with Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets a taste of what the future
would hold as they continued to improve their performance throughout the
remainder of the season and through the next. Sales of Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets,
much like the teams future, started to take a turn for the better as the team began to
recover from its initial streak of losses.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets offer fans the chance to visit Raymond James Stadium
when the team plays at home. The $168.5 Million facility is able to accommodate
65,000 fans and expands to make room for another 10,000 should the team need extra space.
The most notable feature of the stadium is a 40-ton replica pirate ship
constructed from steel and concrete that is able to fire soft rubber footballs or confetti each
time the team makes a touchdown. Additions like a mechanical parrot that is perched
on the ship and able to interact with fans via a remote control interface further
the pirate theme that the franchise has made their own.
Fans with Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets for home games can look forward to
quite a show, as it is common to hear the song "Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for Me)"
played over the PA system, a signal for fans and holders of Tampa Bay buccaneers
tickets to expect shirts and other free prizes to be thrown from the replica ship. The
support of the team's fans has been sorely tested over the years by a number of
losing streaks. Their first extended period of losses came in 1976, when the team lost
all 14 of its regular season games, and the first 12 games the following year for a new NFL
record of 26 straight losses. Currently the support of fans has begun to pay off as the
team has been enjoying greater success in recent seasons.
12-4-12: Two weeks ago the Tampa Bay Bucs were sitting at 6-4 under new head coach Greg Schiano. Since then they have lost two straight and are now a .500 team on the verge of being eliminated from playoff contention. After a tough loss last week in Denver, the Bucs will come back home to face the reeling Eagles. This is definitely a must win situation for the Bucs. Currently in second place, the Buccaneers have a good chance if they can win three of their next four games.
