One Buccaneer Place
They grace the Bay area skyline as twin monuments to the power and passion of
professional football: Raymond James Stadium, “The Crown Jewel of the NFL,” and now its
partner in excellence, One Buccaneer Place, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers new training facility.
Within walking distance of the stadium, the Buccaneers’ new home is already being
touted as the standard by which all future sports facilities will be measured. No effort
was spared in making this the most expansive facility in the NFL, equipped with every modern
amenity and the latest tools of the profession. Opening to rave reviews among league insiders
last summer, it has made Tampa the preferred destination for free agent players, prospective
coaches and administrators.
The new team headquarters is a combination of function, style and space - much, much more
space than the Buccaneers have ever enjoyed. The facility encompasses 145,155 square feet
covering 14.2 acres and includes three practice fields behind the main buildings.
The Buccaneers have used that space to raise the bar in every category of team preparation,
from a 7,000-square-foot locker room to a weight room building that measures more
than 16,000 square feet. Add in a 4,000-square-foot team auditorium, a remarkably-equipped
team dining room and countless other features and you have, hands down, the best facility in
“The new facility gives our players, coaches and staff an unparalleled environment in which
to work,” said Buccaneers Executive Vice President Joel Glazer.
Stylistically, the signature of the new facility is its spectacular entrance, which is adorned with
the world’s largest football. The sleek steel-and-glass construct is five stories tall, point to
point, and angles against the main building as if it were on a tee, ready to start the game.
The two-story main building stretches away to both sides of the football, fronted by appealing
walls of glass that call to mind the most notable exterior feature of Raymond James Stadium.
Inside, the building is state-of-the-art in every way, from the rehabilitation pools in the training
room to fully-integrated video equipment in every meeting room and coach’s office.
It is, simply, the ideal place to build a championship football team.
“We were already playing in the NFL’s best stadium and working for owners who are
completely dedicated to winning,” said Head Coach Jon Gruden. “Now we are working,
practicing and preparing every day in a state-of-the-art facility that has everything we
need. This represents an exciting time to be associated with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”
