Buccaneers offering free tickets after big attendance drop
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are offering some free tickets to season pass holders in an effort to boost attendance for Sunday’s game.
The Bucs only had a recorded attendance of just over 40,000 for last week’s win over the 49ers. The home crowd of 40,682 was the lowest since a game against Carolina in 2010.
To try and boost attendance for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, the Bucs are offering two complimentary tickets to season pass holders on a first come, first serve basis, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
The Bucs are 4-7 this season and have only had one winning season since 2011. Prior to the win over the 49ers, they had lost 7 of 8 games, which likely led to the low attendance against San Francisco.
Jason Pierre-Paul expressed disappointment with the crowd but said he understood the fans’ position.
Jason Pierre-Paul said he was disappointed in Sunday's crowd but understood. "It's not frustrating because you've got to understand the fans, too. They're tired of losing. If I look at it from a fan's point of view, too, I'd be pissed off, too.''
