Jacksonville Jaguars supporter group Bold City Brigade has launched an initiative called Duval Coalition, an effort to create a fan-based narrative about all projects and proposals the team is presenting to the public.
The first of which is the news that the team will be playing two home games in London this year.
The Duval Coalition points out that the voice of the local Jacksonville community is no longer being heard. To combat that, the group will “collect information and survey the fanbase, outside the walls of the stadium to ensure that any narrative that is told about our community is firmly in the grasp of the people that reside in it.”
The statement on their website reads as follows:
When Jacksonville was awarded the 30th NFL franchise in 1993 it was a direct result of a passionate community rallying around a common cause. With the announcement of the Jaguars moving two home games to London it has become clear that the voice of that community is no longer being heard or perhaps being ignored.
Our goal with the Duval Coalition is to unite fans across all walks of life. From die-hard supporters both local and international, to Jacksonville based-businesses, team sponsors, and all those in between. We want to provide the tools and the platform for fans to have one unified voice on the upcoming projects and proposals that the organization is presenting to the public.
Through this effort we will collect information and survey the fanbase, outside the walls of the stadium to ensure that any narrative that is told about our community is firmly in the grasp of the people that reside in it. Our message will be one of unity and positive action with the overall best interest of Jacksonville Jaguars fans as our core motivation.
