The Buccaneers have been the pride of Tampa Bay since the late ’70s. While their home stadiums – the original Tampa “Old Sombrero” Stadium and modern-day Raymond James Stadium – and uniforms have changed over the years, the passion of their fans has just grown stronger over time. Here are our picks for fun gear worthy of any true Buccaneer fan.
The team’s original “Bucco Bruce” logo gets a much-needed overhaul with the addition of quarterback Tom Brady. Go old school with this “creamsicle” T-shirts while you cheer on from home or in the stands of Raymond James Stadium.
This polyester gaiter is lightweight, soft and breathable. While it’s available in a design for every NFL team, naturally we prefer the red and pewter variety. Just roll the gaiter up or down to adjust the length.
Face of a franchise
Hard to believe that the “GOAT” wasn’t drafted until the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft. After playing for the New England Patriots for 20 years, Tom Brady has made Tampa Bay his new home – literally in the case of this shirt, which comes in five colors.
A standout choice
Every day is a hot day at Raymond James Stadium, so relax in this soft, mesh jersey that honors the home team. It’s officially licensed and has moisture-wicking fabric to help you keep your cool – even in overtime.
Take a load off
This Bucs folding chair features a mesh back – to keep you extra cool – and a carry bag so you can tote it anywhere. Did we forget to mention the cup holders? There are two, in case you get extra thirsty.
For those rare chilly days
Zubaz had its heyday in the early ’90s, but the throwback design never goes out of style. The logo is officially licensed by the NFL. Sleeves come with a cozy interior and rib cuffs. It’s machine washable – just remember to tumble dry low.
The Buccaneers were established in 1976 – the same year “Logan’s Run” and “All the President’s Men” dazzled at the box office. Theatrical tastes have changed, but the passion for football remains as hot as ever in Tampa Bay. On cooler days, use this fleece to stay warm while remaining to the Bucs.
Great for backyard games
Tom Brady’s favorite throwing target – Rob Gronkowski – is playing for the Bucs too, so let the whole family celebrate with this youth-sized game jersey. It has breathable mesh sides and a v-neck color with the official NFL logo on it. Fits youth sizes 8-20.
