With football season just around the corner, this news couldn't come at better time. Fifth Third Bank is the new official partner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"This partnership impacts more than sports; it supports community and relationships, and that is what makes banking a Fifth Third better."
This multi-year partnerships comes with multiple perks for Bucs. One of them is construction of the Fifth Third Bank Lounge, an on-field premium experience similar to the Fan Experience at Atlanta Falcons' Benz Stadium . On top of that, Gate D (at the corner of Dale Mabry Highway and Tampa Bay Boulevard) is going to be renamed The Fifth Third Bank Gate. Prior to the first preseason game on August 14th ,a ribbon-cutting event is going to take place at 5:45 p.m.
" While this new partnership incorporates many visible elements that will be incorporated into the fan game day experience, it is the work we will do together in and around the Tampa Bay community in the near future that will make an even greater impact on our entire region."
"One of the most important aspects to this new partnership with Fifth Third Bank is the fact that we will be joining forces with another organization that places a similar importance on giving back and using its platform to transform its communities," said Brian Ford, Buccaneers chief operating officer.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to kick of the season at home on September 9th against Dallas Cowboys. The full schedule can be found here.
