The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today announced the team’s 2015 training camp schedule, which features 11 days that will be open to the general public. The first of these practices, which are free to attend, will take place on Saturday, August 1, beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET.
For the seventh consecutive year, the Buccaneers will host training camp at the team’s headquarters, One Buccaneer Place, where Bay Area fans can most conveniently experience the excitement of watching the club prepare for the 2015 season. Similar to last year, children 12 and under will have the opportunity to gather on the field to receive a free autograph from Buccaneer players following practice. New this year to the training camp experience will be an expanded Kids Zone area that will feature interactive football skills stations, face paintings, a dunk tank, and additional activities.
“This offseason has been one of the most memorable in recent years, fueled by the excitement of making the first overall selection in the draft,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “Every year we strive to make training camp a great opportunity for our fans to visit our facility and enjoy an up-close and personal experience. With 11 practices open to the public, there will be plenty of opportunities for our fans to come out and get a first look at their team prior to the start of an exciting season of football. ”
