The Bucs are preparing to make single-game tickets available for purchase, and as part of that effort they are detailing what you can expect from week to week at Raymond James Stadium this fall.

Tickets go on sale on July 17 at 10 a.m. Among the notable schedule details: the Sept. 29 game against the Cardinals, for which the Bucs will wear their throwback creamsicle jerseys. The annual “throwback game” began in 2009 and has become a game players especially look forward to.

Previously-disclosed highlights include two primetime games – a Thursday night game against the Panthers on Oct. 24 and a Monday night matchup against the Dolphins on Nov. 11. The game against the Dolphins will feature the induction of Warren Sapp into the team’s Ring of Honor, further ensuring it will be a hot ticket.

Another feature on the schedule: A post-game concert after the Dec. 15 “Faith and Family” themed game against the 49ers. The team did not disclose what artist will be performing.

Tickets to the Sept. 15 home opener against the Saints are already on sale.
