Bucs' Stadium Receives $10.4 Million in Federal Funding

Brock Fritz Headshot

Tampa Bay officials are making plans on how to best use $10.4 million in federal funding to upgrade safety measures at Raymond James Stadium — the site of this year’s Super Bowl.

The Tampa Bay Times reported Tuesday that the funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act have been approved for upgrades protecting against the spread of COVID-19. The Hillsborough County Commission will vote Wednesday on the specific improvements.

According to the Times, hand-sanitizing stations, removable seat bottoms, touch-free toilets and sinks, a parking lot public address system and a larger press box are among the 40-plus modifications. The goal is to have the stadium ready for the public by Oct. 31 — if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and University of South Florida football teams are able to host fans in a state that has seen a recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
