Despite the change in media headlines across the United States of America, COVID-19 is still prevalent in the world and continually rearing its ugly head. As a result, Tampa Bay Buccaneers players are not expected to report to Advent Health Training Facility until the start of Training Camp, which is in late July.
Of course, the team being able to start Camp is a much anticipated sign that football is right around the corner, but it may not be so great for the fans who wish to attend Training Camp activities.
Although nothing has been said yet as to whether or not fans will be allowed to attend Camp functions, coach Bruce Arians believes that they will not be allowed to attend. The reason is likely due to the danger of COVID-19. Not allowing fans to attend would ensure the safety of the fans themselves, the players and the coaching staff.
Considering that all camp travel has already been terminated, including team joint practices, it’s not likely that Camp will be open to the public or held privately, for Bucs Fans this season.
