Upon further review, they’re huge. Enormous. Gigantic.
Not to say the new video screens in the end zones of Raymond James Stadium are large, but I think Jameis Winston has something in his eye. I think it’s a bowling ball.
Think of those video screens, some four times as large as last year’s replay screens, as Tampa Bay’s largest TV sets? They are massive, and they are clear. The test will be for the fans to decide to watch the game live or catch it on replay.
Those screens are the most noticeable of the improvements to Raymond James Stadium, which also includes upgrades in the premium seat area.
The Buccaneers are committed to spend a minimum of $29 million on Phase 1 improvements and $28.8 million on Phase 2, combined with the TSA’s $28.8 million. Additional enhancements are expected to be added, which would put the total project in excess of $100 million.
The biggest challenge? The team has to come up with plays worth replaying.
