The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFL team of iconic quarterback Tom Brady, will require new season-ticket buyers to sign up for the next two seasons.
Tampa Bay Times journalist Rick Stroud posted on Twitter an email supposedly sent to those on the waitlist for season tickets, which outlined new season ticket buyers would have to sign up for two seasons.
The email said: “Based on the overwhelming demand and limited inventory, all new season pass memberships for 2022 will be required to sign up for a two-year commitment.”
Those wanting to purchase tickets in lower level seats at Raymond James Stadium must also prove they are Florida residents, which will need to match account details.
“In order to secure lower level seats, submission of a valid Florida ID matching the name shown on your account will be required within 48 hours of your seat selection,” said the email.
Brady had originally announced his retirement but backtracked on his decision to play another season for the Bucs.
Less than two weeks ago, Brady said in a tweet: “These past two months I’ve realised my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family.
“They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG.”
The interest in season tickets has been spurred on by the comeback of Brady, who has only confirmed his return for one season.
