At the start of the 1994 Eagles season, good things were about to happen. That first game day together, 5 Eagles diehards banded together at a sports bar on Gunn Hwy. in Tampa . At the end of the 1995 season they numbered 17. Paul coined Tampadelphia as the name for the group when they decided to become more than just another bunch of fans, and suggested keeping an address book so we could continue next season. The next season we had over 30, then 45, 50 . . . Over the years the number of fans has grown, as many other transplanted Philadelphia Eagles fans have made their way to our door.
We went to a second location, then Tampadelphia went to a third, which is where we are today, 11 years later, in the Westshore area, close to all the major roads.
Now we're entering our second decade and number in the hundreds.
If you're a Philadelphia Eagles fan in Tampa , welcome home! Our Eagles loyalty has been on local television, in the papers and on local radio. We're well known locally, nationally and within the Philadelphia Eagles organization. But that's not our main focus. We're after a great game day experience for everyone, in comfort with good food, friends, family and plenty of viewing for our Birds fans.
Our Eagles fans in the Tampa Bay area are Tampadelphia! And it's all about a great game day experience. We meet to cheer the Birds and enjoy the games. Right now we have hundreds of loyal fans and families that cheer with us here and elsewhere. Over 225 joined us for the Packer playoff game last season, and over 350 for the Carolina game.
If you're looking for the right place on game day, in a comfortable venue where you can come alone, or bring the gals, family, kids . . . and with excellent service, good food, free snacks, food and drink specials, all with a family focus, then look no more. Tampadelphia is the original Eagles fan club and the place to be, and accept NO imitations.
Thanks to the internet we're drawing fans from within a 2 hour drive of our door. And thanks to our hosts and being in a hotel, we always have enough room and we have a chair for you.
