The Tampa Bay Buccaneers plan to raise ticket prices for a third consecutive season despite putting up a dismal 5-11 campaign in 2017. This news comes courtesy of Greg Auman of Tampa Bay Times. According to the report, tickets will cost up to $500 more in some cases. Lower-level tickets on the team’s home field side will increase $250 per ticket and sell for $1,600. This represents a 62-percent increase over the same seat price ($900) in 2015. At least the cheapest tickets will stay priced at $450 each, per the report. But, that is still a lot of dough for a nosebleed seat. It was also reported that the “actual home attendance” at games dropped 2.4 percent in 2017. Overall, the Buccaneers ranked 29th of the league’s 32 teams in home attendance in 2017.
