RAYMOND JAMES STADIUM CONSTRUCTION UPDATE AND PHOTO/VIDEO OPPORTUNITY FOR INSTALLATION OF FIRST PHASE OF NEW SCOREBOARD LED PANELS

Buccaneers COO Brian Ford, TSA President/CEO Eric Hart and representatives from Daktronics and Manhattan Construction to be Available
On Thursday, June 16, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, along with the Tampa Sports Authority and representatives from Daktronics and Manhattan Construction will be available on the field at Raymond James Stadium to provide a construction update for Phase 1 of the renovation projects that are ongoing.
 
The Buccaneers reached an agreement in the fall of 2015 with the Tampa Sports Authority that will result in a comprehensive renovation of Raymond James Stadium. The multi-stage renovation plan is expected to exceed $100 million and will be completed in two stages. The first stage is scheduled to be completed for the Buccaneers’ 2016 season and is highlighted by the installation of new, state-of-the-art HD video boards in each end zone and four HD tower video displays in each corner of the lower bowl, giving the stadium a total video display area of 28,416 feed – the third-largest in the NFL. Also included will be a new, comprehensive sound system and the renovation of all luxury suites. The second phase of renovations – completed in time for the team’s 2017 season – will include extensive overhauls of the east and west club lounges, expansions of the general concourses, construction of a team store and other general enhancements.
 
Media will also have the opportunity to film and photograph the first phase of LED panel installations which will begin on the stadium’s north end zone scoreboard structure.
