On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers unveiled plans for their forthcoming upgrades to Raymond James Stadium. The improvements, which include an overhauled West Stadium Club, a new team retail store, expanded Hall of Fame Club, and a new home team locker room, are the latest products of the more than $150 million, multi-phased renovation to the facility.
The redesigned West Stadium Club will incorporate modern style with high-end finishes and furnishings, while providing more than 60,000 square feet of total lounge space – an increase of more than 25 percent from the original event space. Additional new amenities will include oversized 26-foot by 15-foot video walls at each end of the Club, four additional smaller video walls to be positioned over two centrally-located bar spaces, and the installation of 178 new 4K video displays throughout the Club.
Starting in 2017 Buccaneers fans will also be able to shop for their favorite team apparel and merchandise from a new 10,000-square foot team store located in the West Atrium that will be open year-round. Additionally, the all-inclusive Hall of Fame Club North, which debuted last season to overwhelming demand, will be expanded by more than 100 seats.
“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 Raymond James Stadium press box.
