Jaguars-Chiefs game blacked out,
game day will feature food drive and military appreciation
The Jaguars will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. and the game will air live on WOKV AM & FM (690, 106.5) and the Jaguars Radio Network. Because it is not sold out the game will be blacked out in the Jacksonville area and secondary markets. The secondary markets included in the blackout are Gainesville, Daytona Beach, Orlando and Savannah.
The Jaguars main ticket office, located on the West side of the stadium, will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday and 9:00 am to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. The game day ticket office located between gates 2 and 3 will open at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday. Fans can purchase tickets by calling (904) 633-2000 or 1.877.4.JAGS.TIX (option 3) or by visiting jaguars.com.

Fans attending the game are reminded that the Jacksonville Agricultural Fair is taking place on the west side of the stadium, so there may be more traffic congestion than normal. Parking in lots P and R is not available for this game, so fans are encouraged to park in the Sports Complex Garage adjacent to the Arena. Access to lots M and N will be via Adams Street only, not Duval Street.
Reminder to bring non-perishable food items for food drive
The 15th annual Jaguars food drive stadium collection will take place on Sunday. Fans are reminded to bring non-perishable food items to the game. Donations will be accepted at each of the stadium's six main gates including both East and West Club entrances beginning at 10:30 am. Fans may also give a monetary donation. The first 2,500 fans who donate at the game will receive a Jaguars giveaway item.
The Second Harvest Food Bank of North Florida, Northeast Florida's regional food bank, will again serve as the central resource of receiving and distributing the donated food to 18 area counties and 515 non-profit organizations feeding those who hunger.
