Bucs announce latest phase of Raymond James improvements

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Tampa Bay Bucs are building off of the field, too.

The Bucs announced another phase of improvements to Raymond James Stadium, including a redesigned West Stadium Club, a new team retail store, expansion of the Hall of Fame Club, and a new home team locker room.

“These are exciting times for our organization, both on and off the field,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “The redesigned West Stadium Club will be a game-changer for our fans that are looking for the best views of the action along with the comfort of an air-conditioned lounge. The new team store will also be a great destination for our fans looking for exclusive merchandise that they won’t find anywhere else.”

Other stadium enhancements include a new 18,700-square foot Buccaneers locker room, which will triple the size of the previous one, and a refresh to the press box.

The Buccaneers won their final four home games, and six of their last eight overall, to cap a 9-7 season in 2016. They will look to carry that momentum and excitement against a 2017 home slate that includes the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, New York Jets, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and NFC South rivals Carolina and New Orleans.
