The Tampa Bay Buccaneers really, really, really want to see a packed house at the team’s home opener against the San Francisco 49ers, so they’re pulling out all the stops to spread the word about the September 8 matchup where country music megastar Tim McGraw is already booked to play before the game and at halftime.

That’s why the team is invading St. Petersburg’s First Friday on September 6. A press release says that cheerleaders are going to lead the charge and give away tickets to the game.

Shenanigans, including photo opportunities and games, go down from 5:30 p.m-10 p.m. in downtown St. Petersburg. More information is available via social media.
