Supply and demand. That is pretty much the name of the game.
Following the 2019 season, the Tampa Bay Bucs finished their third season in a row near the bottom of the league in attendance. The franchise had a total home attendance of 355,102, about an average of 50,728 per game. That was good for the third lowest in the league.
In fact, the team hadn’t finished better than No. 20 in the last five years. They won’t be having those problems in 2020.
The Tom Brady rumors of him signing with the team saw an increase level for season tickets as many fans found themselves waiting over an hour online to get tickets. For that reason, the franchise raised prices, according to ESPN.
“Season tickets are now 15% more than last year due to such high demand. For instance, a ticket in the lower levels near the 20-yard line now costs $161 per game (10 games, eight regular-season and two preseason) when it previously was $136.85. The Bucs’ most affordable ticket costs $40.30 per game now when it previously cost $34.25 (all prices are before taxes and fees are added).”
It should be noted that increases are for the new fans only.
