Who in their right mind would pay that much to go to a Jaguar game?


Celebrities?

It's 250/person. The $12,500 is all together for a single group.

Perhaps instead of making snide remarks, you should spend your time reading.


Assuming you can get a group of 50 people. Typically, it's going to be far fewer people than that, I'd imagine. Only time I've ever known a group that large to gather collectively for a game is when businesses get tickets, but typically that's something the team does to help the sellout by giving them out or selling 'em way on the cheap. And that's usually cheaper/less popular tickets in the first place.

Doesn't even really have to go that far. Get a group of 10 or so moderately high income people together. ~$1000 for a game ain't too unreasonable. Cheaper than some people would spend on tickets + transportation + hotel if they're too far away from their team.

So many college dudes, are going to head out there.

12k isn't that much , specially when it's once a week, 8 times
In total.

World's largest video boards, only stadium with pools, league's most up to date locker and training facility, and likely more renovations to come (including shade machines). We outchea.

A bit of background here. The stadium was built to be the 2nd largest stadium in the NFL at the time of construction, and 4th largest now. It was built this way so that the city could still host the Florida/Georgia game that was held at the Gator Bowl. College games always pull more fans to a game than NFL games do, so the stadium had to be built bigger than you would have if the stadium was just going to be used primarily for NFL games. Because Jacksonville isn't the 4th largest market for NFL games, the team had to cut down on seating available. This is why the tarps were there. This plan removes the tarped off areas that made the stadium seem empty even when it was full, replaces it with massive scoreboards and attractions, while maintaining the ability to put back seating for the Florida/Georgia game and any other massive attractions.

A lot of this is about shedding the misdirected label that Jacksonville can't sustain a professional football team, and really that starts by fixing the stadium so it doesn't look empty when it has more people in it than many other stadiums do.

This + future renovations + the work Shad is doing to help build up the city also will make Jacksonville a major player in attracting future Super Bowls too.

Shad's been working with premiere architectural companies figuring out future renovations that could be made to the stadium. One example that he's worked on:



He's not playing around here. And all moving jokes aside, he's clearly dedicated to keeping the team where it is.

Can only imagine the cost of a ticket for that part of the stadium, but hey, innovative, sort of.. more power to you.

Didnt take long for the smart #$% remarks to come. Considering taking out 9000 seats still makes us bigger than some other stadiums or very close while adding a new factor to the stadium. I trust Khan's marketing, he is a business man and he knows how to make his money. There is a lot of buzz in Florida around the team

Also, we haven't had a blackout in years, get your facts straight people

Which I'm sure Jacksonville is teeming with.

I think it's a great move, personally. Not only will a nicer stadium like this attract more fans, it will (like you said) potentially attract a Super Bowl and a host of other events that will drive money into the city.

Honestly I've always had a soft spot for the Jags (had a Jags lunchbox in 4th grade prior to the Ravens moving here), so I'm glad to see this happening for them.

If I am a young professional...it would give me one more reason to what to buy season tickets.

Khan is doing everything he can to make the stadium and franchise an attractive place to be. It'll all be for naught if they can't become competitive though.

It's been shown pretty conclusively that boosting attendance proportion can be significantly advantageous from a revenue perspective. That is having fewer seats but the appearance of fullness increases net attendance in the long run. This is why "tarping" is done. So if they have to renovate for 50k to make it more permanent and less like a crappy tarping it's good. Maybe the attendance picks up and they will start whittling away at the area if it seems needed. Given Florida's snowbird based track record I doubt it.
