The Bucs play their first preseason game Saturday night against the Browns, and fans will get their first look at another phase of renovations to Raymond James Stadium.
While not as visible from the field as last year's new video boards and sound system, the Bucs unveiled on Thursday their new West Stadium Club, which covers more than 60,000 square feet -- up by more than 25 percent -- with large 26-by-15-foot video walls at each end and a large wooden football sculpture.
The renovations won't be limited to just game day -- a new team store on the west side of the stadium covers 10,000 square feet and features more than 2,000 unique items branded with the Bucs logo, even an area where custom jerseys can be personalized. The store will be open Thursday through Sunday, so fans not going to games can still stop in.
The Bucs will have a new locker room at the stadium this fall -- at 18,700 square feet, it is more than triple the size of their old locker room, which will now be used by USF football as their exclusive locker room.
