NFL: Tampa Mayor Jane Castor pushes to keep Bucs vs Chiefs in town following Hurricane Ian

Update: The effort apparently worked. The game will proceed in Tampa as planned.

On Thursday morning, Tampa Mayor, Jane Castor, took to social media to lobby keeping the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game against the Kansas Chiefs in Tampa, following the effects of Hurricane Ian.

The Mayor’s message was retweeted by ESPN’s Adam Schefter and immediately began the debate over whether the game should be played in Florida, or possibly moved to a contingency site in Minneapolis.

Reactions were mixed among social media users..

In addition to a competitive advantage for the team, keeping the game in town also brings economic rewards for the region with thousands coming to the area to see the game and staying over on Sunday night.
