Due to the tremendous demand for autographs, players will be available inside
the four Club Lounges and on the West Main Concourse from 10 a.m. to noon and
noon to 2 p.m. Cheerleaders will sign autographs on the field. All fans,
regardless of age, must have an area-specific voucher to obtain autographs in

first-serve basis at the stadium ticket office off Tampa Bay Boulevard
beginning at 9:15 a.m. Vouchers are not required at the West Main Concourse autograph
station. Autograph cards will be provided in all signing areas, and there will
be a limit of one item per person to be signed by each player or cheerleader.
The Buccaneers cannot guarantee that all fans will receive an autograph due to
the large number of people expected to attend “FanFest.”
