The Jacksonville Jaguars sold out their first home playoff game since 1999 within minutes of opening it up to the general public. With demand still high, the team looked for other ways to get people in the door — lift the tarps, sell standing room only tickets, whatever it took!
Those sold out too. That makes for 69,132 fans in EverBank Field next weekend.
Owner Shad Khan was just as excited as we are for the game, thanking fans for responding in such a passionate way:
“It’s amazing. I’m also not surprised in the least. Our fans have been waiting too long to unlock the passion they have for their team and city. The chance to show the world how great Jacksonville is as a football town is finally here and our fans came through, just as I knew they would. Winning pays off, but nonetheless we are grateful for the response. I only wish we could accommodate everyone.”
I love you, Jaguars.
