JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars today released renderings and confirmed details of the new south end zone tunnel to be constructed at EverBank Field. These improvements will establish a brand new team entrance, create the latest in premium seating options and pave the way for a future exclusive club area.
These renovations are a part of the $90 million investment in EverBank Field announced by the City of Jacksonville and the Jaguars at the State of the Franchise event earlier this year.
"This is step one in the ongoing evolution of the south end zone," said Jaguars President Mark Lamping. "As we prepare to break ground next month on the amphitheater and flex field, this unique field access will open up the new venues to a commanding view of EverBank Field and provide fans with a one-of-a-kind game day atmosphere. An additional benefit of these improvements is that they increase the flexibility of the stadium and make EverBank Field a better venue for other events."
Planning is underway for a future club area behind the south end zone that will allow for exclusive access to the players as they enter the field, premium food and beverage options and a technologically advanced viewing area. Details are still being finalized and will be released when available.
Redesign of the south end zone bowl will result in the relocation of approximately 150 season ticket member accounts. Season ticket holders of these seats were notified this week and sales managers are walking them through the relocation process. The stadium capacity for the annual Florida-Georgia game will be unaffected.
As with the ongoing improvements to the US Assure Clubs, these changes to the south end zone are expected to be completed in time for the Jaguars' first home game of the preseason.
