I saw a recent fanpost about number of Bucs games our fans here will be attending this year. When I lived in Florida (West Palm) I would try to come over to Tampa for one game a year but since I moved out of state 6 years ago I haven't been back. Luckily I have my NFL Sunday ticket and I never miss a game (no blackouts in TN or TX where I have lived) but sometimes I wish I could support the team and help fill the stadium. I personally think TV blackouts are horrible for the sport and especially the city they are happening in. There are young kids growing up in Tampa right now that are becoming Cowboys and Packers fans because that is what they see on TV each Sunday when the Bucs games are being blacked out.
So I was thinking maybe there is a way I could support my team and help increase the fan base in the future by buying tickets to a game and donating them to a non profit organization that works with young kids. Obviously that would be even better if it was tax deductible and I could get a write off for doing it (not sure if the IRS would go for that). Or if the Bucs organization was involved maybe they could work directly with a local organization. Say I pay half price for a few tickets to a game and they eat the rest of the cost and directly donate them to a local organization. I'm not sure there would be a big list of people looking to do this but I was just curious what others here thought since I know we have die hard fans that don't all live in the Tampa area.
Reply to this message and let me know what you think and where I should start looking to see if this is possible.
