The Jacksonville Jaguars announced they have lifted the tarps over two sections in the stadium making over 3,000 additional tickets available for their first round playoff game next week.
The following statement was released by the Jaguars:
The response from Jaguars fans to this week’s playoff game ticket sales has been tremendous. We’ve watched firsthand as the community rallied behind the Jaguars during our last few home games, but the demand over the last 48 hours has exceeded expectations.
During the regular season, NFL policy prohibits a change in seating capacity, and sponsorships for our tarps are sold on a season-long basis. Following yesterday’s rapid sellout, this morning the Jaguars sought and received permission from the League and our sponsors – Navy Mutual and FDOT’s “Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow” campaign – to remove the tarps and sell those seats for our home playoff game next weekend.
The Jaguars argrateful to the League and our gracious sponsors for allowing even more fans to be there to experience the Jaguars’ first home playoff game in nearly two decades.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday at 10 A.M. eastern.
