Get ready, Tampa Bay!
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will honoring the original ‘Creamsicle’ uniforms against former NFC Central Division rivals the Detroit Lions on Oct. 15.
The game marks the first time Tampa Bay will wear the Creamsicle color scheme since 2012 and serves as the, "centerpiece of the organization’s Creamsicle launch focusing on celebrating the deep roots of the team’s nearly 50-year history. "
“The return of our beloved Creamsicle uniforms for this special game is something that our fans have been passionate about for many years, and we are excited to celebrate the history of our franchise with a unique, dedicated Creamsicle gameday experience,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “This is more than a throwback game; it is a celebration of our legacy and some of the great moments and players that make our story so special to our fans.”
In addition to the uniforms, Raymond James Stadium will be transformed to the Tampa Stadium —aka ‘The Big Sombrero’ — with retro field stencils, stadium bunting and video board assets.
Game themes for the remaining Buccaneers home games will be announced in the coming days.
