The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced their training camp schedule and will hold 10 open practices beginning July 25 at 8:45 a.m. This years training camp marks the beginning of a new and exciting season of football in Tampa Bay, Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford said. We are thrilled to give our loyal fans their first glimpse of the 2013 Buccaneers on the field and I know our entire organization is equally excited to get to work on what promises to be a memorable season. There are no tickets required for public admittance to training camp, and those attending can enjoy autograph sessions, free parking, discounted concessions, merchandise tents and appearances by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear. Continuing a popular feature from the 2012 camp, all 2013 training camp practices will take place from 8:45-11:30 a.m., with gates opening at 7:45 a.m. The early times will help fans beat the heat and avoid afternoon thunderstorm threats. The exception to the daily practice schedule is the popular night intrasquad scrimmage under the lights at Raymond James Stadium on July 27. That practice features free parking and admission, as well as discounted concessions and extended autograph sessions with active players, alumni and cheerleaders. Parking lots open at 2:30 p.m., with autograph vouchers required for active-player signing sessions distributed through the box office in the South Plaza starting at 3 p.m. and autograph sessions beginning at 4 p.m. The scrimmage is scheduled for a 6:45 p.m. start. Fans will be treated to a fireworks show to conclude the evening. In August, the Buccaneers will also begin their preseason game slate, opening at home against the Super Bowl XLVII Champion Baltimore Ravens on August 8 at 7:30 p.m., before hitting the road for two consecutive road games. Tampa Bay squares off at the New England Patriots on Friday, August 16, at 8:00 p.m., in a game that will be nationally televised on FOX. Following their trip to the Northeast, the Buccaneers face another road test against the Miami Dolphins on Aug. 24, at 7:30 p.m. The club closes preseason action by hosting the Washington Redskins at Raymond James Stadium on Thursday, August 29, at 7:30 p.m. 2013 TRAINING CAMP PUBLIC SCHEDULE PLEASE NOTE: Practice schedule and times are subject to change.
