The Big Sombrero, opened in 1967, was the former home stadium of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Aside from sporting events, Tampa Stadium hosted many large concerts, including Led Zeppelin in 1973, which at the time set the record for largest audience (57,000) to ever see a single artist. The Tampa Bay Rowdies (soccer), Bandits (football/USFL) and Mutiny (soccer) also called Tampa Stadium home, as did the University of South Florida and University of Tampa college football teams. The Big Sombrero also hosted Super Bowls in 1984 and 1991.
In 1998 the Bucs' new facility, Raymond James Stadium, was built in Tampa Stadium's parking lot. The Big Sombrero was demolished in 1999.

Customers say our t-shirts run slightly small.
For most men we recommend ordering the next size up, especially if you're ever between sizes or prefer a looser fit.
For most women we recommend ordering the same size as your regular women's size, but if you prefer a tighter fit you may want to order one size down.
Our t-shirts are premium 50/50 blends (cotton/polyester), giving them that buttery-soft feel you’re looking for!
