For the first time since 2005 the Jaguars are set to remove all of the tarps covering seats in the upper bowl of EverBank Field.
This after a season that saw the Jaguars return to prominence and a resurgence in fan interest. The die hards have always been there for the Jaguars, but the common fan is once again engaged and ready to support a winner.
This is huge news and a big step towards long term success in the Jacksonville market for the Jaguars.
With the removal of the tarps there will be an increase in season ticket prices of about 10.9%.
Team President Mark Lamping had this to say about the recent announcement:
Getting rid of the tarps has been our goal since Shad Khan purchased the team in 2012. Given the strength of our home schedule and the enthusiasm from the community, we will move forward without the tarps in 2018. Our fans created a real home field advantage for our final 2017 regular season games and home playoff appearance. We want to make sure that same home field advantage is a reality every time the Jaguars take the field this fall by giving fans access to even more affordable tickets. Season tickets in these newly opened areas will be priced at $45 per game.
The Jaguars also announced their new uniforms will be released this spring.
The removal of the tarps will alleviate one of the few remaining black marks on the franchise and their fan base.
In addition to the fantastic news about the Tarps, the team also announced lower concession prices for the upcoming season.
The recent progress of the franchise is paying off - the team has already received 5,000 deposits from new season ticket holders.
