Buccaneers may avoid blackouts this year

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have struggled with blackouts for years on end, but ticket sales are actually increasing this year.

It seems the Buccaneers are doing well at selling tickets, a stark departure from previous seasons of lackluster sales and blackouts. The addition of Darrelle Revis may have something to do with that, although an intriguing schedule probably helps, too. According to Pewter Report, there will actually be some games that will sell out well in advance. I can't even remember the last time that happened.

Wow, that is one sad statement.

Regardless, it seems that the Bucs' marketing efforts are actually working. Marketing may have been lacking a few years ago, but the Bucs have implemented some innovations and increased activity over the past two seasons. So far, so good, then. The Bucs also told the Tampa Tribune that season ticket renewal rates were "equal to the glory years".

Hopefully this signals the end of blackouts, or at least a significant decrease. You can help this effort by buying some tickets yourself, for which I suggest going to our ticket partners for Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets, of course.
