Jacksonville, Fla., is home to one of the NFL’s youngest franchises: the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ask any local and they will agree that the city has received a shower of attention for the recent upgrades owner Shad Khan has brought to the team.
Fully investing into the experience of the game for both the players and the fans alike, Khan has shown the city, and the world, that he believes the Jags can go all the way. That enthusiasm proves to be contagious, as ticket sales have taken an impressive upturn.

Everbank Field is the big cats' home turf in the “Bold New City of the South." Set in the heart of downtown, the stadium district is partially flanked by the sparkling St. Johns River and framed in by a mixture of modern and historic architecture the city is composed of.
Sunny skies and palm trees give way to the castle of concrete, as this modern-day arena cuts quite the silhouette in the urban landscape.
From the festive tailgating atmosphere outside the stadium to the virtual carnival experience in and throughout the event, a ticket to see the Jags play is truly “More than a Seat.”
The franchise and the city have put endless hours of consideration and innovation into integrating what makes the First Coast special into the life and breath of the game day for each guest local and visitor alike.
You'll be hard-pressed to find any NFL event that gives you more value for your buck with exceptional fare, a hot social scene and an interactive fan experience like no other.

The Jags' stomping ground now hosts the largest digital scoreboards in the world, too, measuring 60 feet high and 362 feet long. That’s larger than the span of two Boeing 747s!
In fact, all the display boards have been replaced with top-of-the-line digital technology, adding to the Jags' ability to paint a larger-than-life story for its audience by virtually animating the event.
Fans can even get a cameo in the game day by posting social media selfies and waiting for them to show up on the board.
Looking for more of that coastal experience? Jacksonville is known as the “River City by the Sea,” and integrating that love of water was of chief importance to the visionaries behind new additions. One way revelers can enjoy the water is by jumping into one of the two pools (or technically spas) on the Clevelander Deck with a purchase of one of the luxurious cabanas, which host up to 50 people and include food and beverages for all.

Four-top tables and rail tickets are also for sale, as well as field seats for those looking for a unique POV. If you hate sitting still for entire quarters, then you'll love all the free public spaces you’re invited to roam, like the party on the Clevelander Deck; the State Farm Fantasy Lounge, where tablets are available to check your fantasy football scores while you enjoy a drink; and the Budlight Party Zone, which gives you that sports bar vibe.
If you're gaming it with the kids, pregame it at the Web.com fan zone, where obstacles, rock climbing walls and training drills get kids involved and inspired.
