NTG Vs. Tampa Bay tickets?

JFIB : 7/17/2017 10:13 am
Hi all, having trouble getting tickets for the upcoming Tampa game. Just moved to the area and my girlfriend is trying to get us tickets and she's being told they are only available in blocks of ten. Individual tickets aren't on sale yet. Is this pretty typical? When do tix usually go on sale for the general public?

Welcome to the area, JFIB.

What area did you move to? I live in Brandon.

My wife and I were going to get a big group together but they could only get us bleeders for a cost I wasn't cool with for sitting up that high. We are going to BBQ and have a big watch party at my house.

Here is my contact that is in sales for the Bucs.

Give her a call, she'll be able to help you and tell you what's available. If she can't get you good seats, then your best bet is to go on Stubhub, but be prepared to overpay. You may be better off waiting until gameday, going down there and buying, I've heard of people getting deals that way but personally I wouldn't do it because I want the tickets in hand well before the game. Good luck.

If you live near by just go stand on Himes & Tampa Bay Blvd before the game. There are 100s of people out there scalping tickets. You'll end up getting better seats for a cheaper price.

Through Fred. Good seats for a decent price! And BBI!
Fred's the man!

If you end up getting tickets be sure to find our tailgate, it should be a huge party and great time.

Is 100% correct. I live in South Florida and have gone to the last three games the Giants played in Tampa and had little problem getting tickets outside the stadium the day of the game. There are always plenty available.
My brother in law just picked up

two tickets from the NFL exchange site. Probably paid face value, but there were plenty of tickets.
I got ours through the ticket office. Group Sales.

Yes you needed to get at least 10. Ended up with 80. As a group have been to Tampa and Jacksonville a few times and Miami. We were able to get decent seats at face value. Don't have to pay Ticket Master Prices. And didn't want to be concerned with scalpers the day of the game. My preference.

As BigBlueintheKeys said. Were going to have a Big Tailgate more on that as we get closer. All invited. Saturday night we're going to meet for diner probably at Leroy Selmon's Right near the stadium. Give me your email and I'll add you to our group list!

Glad to hear the treatments are working!

So far this was the easiest. Mostly repeats from other games. I only put it out on BBI twice and unfortunately had to turn people away.

In the past I've had a couple of people committing and then wouldn't come up with the money for the tickets. The best one was a guy who after, back and forth for a while, wanted to know how he could trust me and if I could guarantee that I wouldn't run away with his money. The thing is I put up the money for the tickets and parking passes over $7500. I'm not looking for anything but a few guys threw in a couple extra bucks which helps with mailing cause I then send them out registered.

Fred that is very kind of you. I am definitely having quite a few people over for company that weekend. Some are Bucs' fans. My brother-in-law is one. It's unfortunate but he has other redeeming qualities.

I would love to swing by the tailgate for a bit and then head home to watch...I'll reach out if that's a possibility.

Looking forward to tailgating w fellow BBIers in Tampa!
