The Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled their 10th Anniversary logo today. The 2004 season will mark 10 years since the Jaguars made their National Football League debut in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville was awarded the 30th franchise in the National Football League on Nov. 30, 1993 in Chicago. The team began play on July 29, 1995 against their expansion counterpart Carolina Panthers in the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio. The Jaguars opened their inaugural season in front of 72,363 fans at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium on Sept. 3, 1995. The Jaguars finished their first season with the second-most wins ever by an expansion team with four victories. In their 10-year history the Jaguars have amassed a record of 77 wins against 75 losses, including four playoff trips and two appearances in the AFC Championship game.
"We have experienced many great moments over the past decade and look forward to what the future holds," owner J. Wayne Weaver said. "We have taken on a commitment to be not only a winning football franchise, but a first-class franchise that gives back to the community. We truly believe that the best is yet to come."
The logo will appear on all collateral material, at the fifty-yard line inside ALLTEL Stadium and on the team's uniforms this season.
