The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had trouble in recent years avoiding the local television blackout, but that apparently won’t be a problem for their Dec. 21 home date with the Green Bay Packers.
Packer fans traditionally travel well and, hey, who wouldn’t opt for a December trip to Florida if the means are available.
According to the Tampa Tribune, all of the single-game tickets for the Dec. 21 date at Raymond James Stadium are already gone and it’s safe to assume it is Pack fans leading the charge.
For instance, there are still lots of tickets available from the Bucs for their home opener on Sept. 7 against Carolina … and every other home game on the schedule. But for the Dec. 21 game against Green Bay, tickets are only available through resale outlets.
The game is not listed as a sellout yet because there are still tickets available, but only as part of season-ticket packages. If the Buccaneers are out of the playoff hunt by the next to last week of the season, however, there should be plenty of Bucs’ season-ticket holders putting their seats available for resale.
Who knows? Maybe the Packers could even enjoy a home-field advantage while enjoying some December warmth at the same time.
