Security Reminder - Fans are reminded of the upgraded security in and around ALLTEL Stadium for Thursday night's Jaguars-Bills game. Small purses (8 1/2 x 11 inches) will be allowed inside the stadium, but no bags larger than a small purse will be permitted, including backpacks, fanny packs and large camera cases. However, fans are allowed to carry in items, such as ponchos and binoculars, and pick up a free plastic bag at any novelty stand or Fan Accommodation Booth to carry such items once inside the stadium. Diaper bags will be allowed for fans bringing infants or toddlers, but they will be subject to inspection. All objects and purses will be subject to visual and physical inspection prior to entry into the stadium. Persons with special needs should contact the Jaguars at (904) 633-2000. They will need to provide the number of the gate they plan to enter as well as their special needs.
Items prohibited: Coolers, strollers, umbrellas, seat cushions, backpacks, fanny packs, large purses, large bags, camera cases, binoculars cases
Items allowed: Ponchos, flags, towels, hats, binoculars (without case), cameras (less than six-inch long lens, without case), empty spray bottles, sunscreen, small radios with headphones, banners
These new measures, in the interest of security and safety following last month's terrorist attacks, are in addition to previous restrictions. In the past, such items as coolers, strollers and umbrellas were not allowed in ALLTEL Stadium. All fans attending Thursday's game are strongly encouraged to make plans to arrive early at the stadium because these new safety measures may cause delays at the entry gates. The Touchdown Clubs will open at 6:30, and all other gates will open at 7:00 prior to the 8:30 kickoff.
Game Broadcast - Even though the game is blacked out on television, it will be aired live on the Jaguars Radio Network. Jaguars fans can tune in for eight hours of game day action, where they can get the only live account of the game. All of Jaguars games are broadcast locally on WOKV (690 AM), WBWL (600 AM) and WKQL (96.9 FM), as well as the Jaguars Radio Network, which has 19 affiliates in three states. Brian Sexton calls the play-by-play and former NFL quarterback Matt Robinson adds analysis, with Sam Kouvaris serving as field reporter.
Parking Adjustments Due to Fair - Lots P, Q, R will not be available because The Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair will be in operation and will be using those lots. Season ticket holders who park in Lots P, Q, and R are being sent refunds ($21 per pass), and JTA passes for an alternative way to attend the game. For those fans wishing to tailgate, it is recommended that they park at the Prime Osborne Convention Center and ride the JTA to the game. For any questions, call the Jaguars Ticket Office at (904) 633-2000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jaguars Ticket Office - The Jaguars Ticket Office will open at 9:00 a.m. Thursday at the nine-window ticket office by Gate 2. The Ticket Office will be open through game time, and tickets are still available for $40, $50, $65 and $95. The Ticket Office phones will be open 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (904) 633-2000.
Bob Hayes Autographs - Jacksonville native and Olympic Gold Medalist Bob Hayes will sign autographs from 7:15 to 8:00 at the Florida Times-Union Decades of the NFL exhibit in the West Concourse. The autograph session is free.
