Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL

There’s nothing quite like watching the NFL live in the football crazed state of Florida!

Members of the NFL Players Association have consistently rated Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium field as the best in the league and insiders refer to the stadium as a “crown jewel” of the NFL.

First opened in 1998, the Buccaneer’s home field has played host to two Super Bowls – SB XXXV on Jan. 28, 2001 and SB XLIII on Feb. 1, 2009.

A popular fixture at the stadium is the mighty pirate ship, permanently harbored in Buccaneer Cove. The pirate ship comes to life after the Buccaneers score, as loud cannons fire seven times to signal a touchdown and three to signify a field goal. An animatronic parrot perched on the stern of the pirate ship frequently talks to those passing beneath during Buccaneers games. Controlled by radio and remote, it can even pick fans out of the crowd.

The visuals are impressive, as well. Operated by more than 30 technicians at Raymond James Stadium, BucVision allowed the Buccaneers to become the first professional team in any sport to show HDTV images across two giant video boards, each measuring 24 feet tall by 92 feet wide.
