Taylor Swift at Raymond James Stadium: Money in the bank for Tampa Sports Authority
Mother Nature may be the last potential threat standing between the Tampa Sports Authority and a big payday come Oct. 31, when Taylor Swift performs at Raymond James Stadium.
The public agency that manages RayJay surpassed its break-even point on ticket sales in June for the Swift concert, TSA online records show, in what is the latest and perhaps biggest test yet of the Authority's strategy to compete against private concert promoters.
And with the heaviest ticket sales usually coming in the two months prior to an event, TSA expects to make a healthy profit. Records suggest Swift's show could sell out, which would mean a tidy $350,000 profit for the Authority, and thus taxpayers.
