Tampa Bay Fails To Sell Out A Home Game In 2010

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished their slate of regular season home games on Sunday without a sellout, meaning they went the entire season blacked out locally when they were playing at Raymond James Stadium.

The Buccaneers are the only team in the NFL that achieved such a dubious fate.

Raymond James Stadium has a capacity of 65,890. The closest the Buccaneers came to a sell out was in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, when 57,616 tickets were used, according to the Tampa Sports Authority.

Their Oct. 24 contest against the St. Louis Rams saw only 36,008 fans in attendance, a low for the season.
