Tampa Bay Buccaneers need to brace for these three disappointing facts about the 2020 season
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to break a streak of 12-straight seasons without a playoff berth, but if it happens, it’s going to come during an unprecedented time.
Despite the current pandemic, the NFL has continued to plan for its 2020 season to start on time and to be played as regularly scheduled.
Even with that being said, there are going to be differences in this season that we simply have never seen before.
Here are three disappointing facts about the 2020 season that the Buccaneers faithful need to brace for.
3. Fan attendance is going to be minimal, if at all
The Baltimore Ravens announced a couple of weeks ago that they would be playing their games with up to 20 percent capacity. The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they would have up to 25 percent capacity this past week.
We should expect that the rest of the NFL franchises will follow suit rather quickly.
If the Buccaneers can get to 25 percent, that would mean a little more than 16,400 fans would be allowed to be in Raymond James Stadium on a given Sunday.
Despite the fact that Bucs tickets are selling for a premium and there have been more requests for season tickets this year than ever before, the truth of the matter is that we’re not going to see fans fill stadiums as we had hoped would happen.
