Witness the future of your Buccaneers during a huge Draft Party at Raymond James Stadium (4201 N Dale Mabry Hwy). The event takes place on Thursday, April 25 and the parking lot opens at 6pm. Join The Krewe when the team makes its first pick of the NFL Draft.

Last season, the team over-delivered and made a run in the playoffs after winning its division. Baker Mayfield and Mike Evans captured the hearts of the Tampa Bay faithful. We’re not sure which players the Bucs have their eyes on, but we are excited to see this team add more future star power to its impressive roster.


Doors and gates for the draft party open for members at 6:30pm, and non-members at 7pm. The NFL Draft officially begins at 8pm. Tickets are $5 for members and $15 for non-members.
