Sports bar addition part of latest Bucs’ RayJay renovations

The Bucs have announced another phase of their renovation of Raymond James Stadium, focusing on upgrades to the East Stadium Club.

The team said Tuesday that the redesign will include 162 televisions, new bars at both ends of the club lounge and a new 8,000-square-foot premium sports bar in the East Atrium, which is expected to be open only on the days Bucs home games are played.

"This next phase of renovations is part of the Buccaneers organization's continued commitment to maintaining Raymond James Stadium as one of the country's premier sporting venues," Bucs chief operating officer Brian Ford said in a statement. "Last season, we introduced a reimagined West Stadium Club experience that was very well received by our members, and this year's enhancements have been designed to build off that success and bring that elevated gameday experience to fans in the East Stadium Club.

The stadium has already seen much of the $160 million in renovations, including new video boards before the 2016 season and last year's upgrades.

The Bucs' changes to the East Stadium Club will include "dark hardwoods, pewter accents, elegant carpeting, modern lighting and striking colors" in the renovated areas.

The team announced last month that season-ticket prices would go up in many areas of the stadium for new purchases, as well as for existing season-ticket members who did not renew before a deadline set for this Thursday.
