Gronk might be gone, but the cannons will be firing over 3,600 new seats this upcoming Bucs season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expanding Raymond James Stadium with the "Krewe's Nest," an upper-level section located behind the south end zone—offering a new angle to see a Tom-Brady-to-Mike-Evan's touchdown pass.
The addition comes as the Bucs experience "an unprecedented demand for 2022 season passes," according to the team. With Brady's looming retirement, Super Bowl LV flashbacks and five primetime games, it's no wonder why fans are eager to get back inside Ray Jay. With the addition of the Krewe's Nest, the stadium will be able to seat nearly 70,000 fans for the first time ever.

The 2022 Krewe's Nest Season Pass costs $2,700 and includes benefits like playoff ticket priority, training camp access and discounted parking, food, beverage and merchandise prices.
Creative Loafing Tampa Bay reached out to the Bucs to get more details on the Krewe's Nest seats and figure out what happened to the concession stands that were in the south end zone. We'll update the post as soon as we find out.
Since Brady's arrival in 2020, the Bucs' ticket prices have skyrocketed and now average amongst the highest across the league—guess there are pros and cons to having the G.O.A.T. on our side.
