The Jaguars announce their 2008 regular season home opponents schedule and ticket price re-structuring for next season. Dates and times of the team's games will be announced by the NFL in April.
Buffalo, Cleveland, Green Bay, Minnesota and Pittsburgh will play in Jacksonville next season, along with the Jaguars' three AFC South rivals: Houston, Indianapolis and Tennessee.
Although ticket prices for the 2008 season will include an across-the-board increase, average prices in the general bowl will remain lower than the NFL average ticket price for comparable seating. In addition to maintaining some of the best season ticket values in the NFL, the Jaguars have also restructured single-game and game-day pricing, bringing more value for those who purchase season tickets.
A $390 season ticket purchased for seats in the upper deck will cost a season ticket holder $39 per game, while fans who wait to purchase a single-game ticket later in the year will pay $50 for a similar seat. Those who wait until game day to purchase a seat will pay $55. Season ticket-holders will also be able to purchase additional single-game tickets at a special rate for a limited time period prior to the start of the season.
Jaguars Senior VP of Business Development, Tim Connolly, explained the new pricing policy: "We wanted to create a price structure that provides the best value to our season ticket holders, while at the same time allowing the Jaguars to stay competitive with the rest of the NFL."
As the Jaguars head to Pittsburgh for the start of the postseason, the franchise takes pride in its accomplishments of 2007:
• Fred Taylor became one of 23 running backs in NFL history to have rushed for 10,000 yards.
• The Jaguars won 11 games, which ranks the Jaguars sixth in the league in wins (40) over the last four seasons.
• Quarterback David Garrard became the highest-rated passer in single-season Jaguars history. Garrard is one of only three quarterbacks in the league to have a passer rating of 100 or better, 102.2.
While the Jaguars were achieving their success on the field over the last four years, they were doing so with the fifth-lowest average ticket price in the league.
