After months of speculation and rumors, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have finally announced that new jerseys are coming in April of 2020.
The long wait is finally over and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are moving away from their current jerseys. This is a moment that fans have waited on for a long time and will likely get a very positive reception from the fanbase.
The video doesn’t provide much and is more of a teaser but does confirm from the organization that the prayers of the fans have been answered with the reveal coming in April of this year.
This video was tweeted out from the official Twitter account for the Buccaneers. The video itself shows several older iterations of the jerseys that were often well-received by the fanbase.

The creamsicle made an early appearance which likely means that Tampa Bay will try to utilize those colors in the upcoming jersey designs, a move that will certainly get a positive reception if handled in the proper way.
This announcement comes at the perfect time for the Buccaneers leading into Combine-week and will keep the fanbase engaged in the time leading up until the 2020 NFL Draft.
Tampa Bay needed to make a move like this in an attempt to keep the fanbase happy as the current jersey designs have not been well received. The Bucs have wanted to bring back some of the throwback colors during the past seasons but struggled with getting permission from the NFL due to the most recent designs and helmet rules.
This move will turn over a new leaf for the Buccaneers after the past decade of minimal success and ties in perfectly to the new identity that the team is starting to form under Bruce Arians and Todd Bowles. This move also allows the team to still use some of the older designs that were well-liked in a new way.
Tampa Bay was not far off from competing this past season and showed a substantial improvement over their 2018 season even though the record was only marginally better in 2019. These new jerseys combined with the momentum that the team is starting to generate will lead to a substantial amount of excitement for the 2020 season.
The Buccaneers found success in some of the jerseys shown in the 30-second video and fans will hope for a return to the success that the team experienced in the late ’90s and early 2000s while wearing a jersey that the fanbase can get excited about.
