TAMPA (FOX 13) - If you have tickets to Sunday's game at Raymond James Stadium, you may want to plan ahead for where you'll park.
The City of Tampa says Al Lopez Park will be closed Sunday, September 17 - eliminating one of 1 Buc's largest parking areas.
The park is being used by FEMA for public distribution of food and water to those impacted by Hurricane Irma.
Given the expected traffic of the distribution activities, parking will not be offered for the Buccaneers home game.
The Buccaneers play the Chicago Bears this Sunday. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. Privately operated parking is available at various locations along N Himes Avenue and N Dale Mabry Highway.
The city says normal game day parking operations are expected to resume when the Buccaneers play the Vikings at home on Sunday, September 24. Kickoff for that game will be 1 p.m.
