The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were awarded the top ranking of all NFL teams for in-stadium technology for the second-straight season on Monday. The franchise was voted No. 1 in the NFL’s 2017 “Voice of the Fan” report.

Helping the Buccaneers’ cause was the $160 million being put toward renovating Raymond James Stadium. The money has allowed them to improve fan experience, including installing an HD video system with 31,000 square-feet of board space. The Bucs’ game-day experience began taking shape back in 2016.

Fans at games can unlock a range of experiences with their mobile devices. Via the Buccaneers app, fans can access exclusive camera angles and tune in to NFL RedZone.

If you’re not a proponent of being on your phone during the game, the Buccaneers also display real-time game stats and recaps up video boards. Four tower walls of HD screens feature fantasy football updates and news from other games going on around the league.

SportTechie Takeaway

Just six miles east of Raymond James Stadium is another venue that has invested heavily in its tech offerings. Amalie Arena, home of the NHL’s Lightning, went completely mobile in January with the help of Venuetize. Now, through Amalie’s mobile app, fans can pay for concessions, merchandise, and tickets through a mobile wallet feature.
