The Jaguars will host the defending NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in the team's home opener 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.
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. By purchasing single game tickets online prior to game day fans will save up to 10% on the price of tickets, and by selecting the TicketFast delivery option, the tickets will be delivered straight to their e-mail inbox – eliminating any need to wait in line.
For fans traveling to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium for the game, the JTA Stadium Shuttle Service returns for the 2009 season with no price increase. The shuttles will be operating two hours before kickoff until one hour after the end of the game. For more information fans can call (904) 630-3100. All park-and-ride locations will be open for the regular season games.
This season the Jaguars have implemented a text messaging system which allows fans to report violations of the fan code of conduct. Fans can text "Assist" followed by the location and brief description of the issue to 58154, and the guest services team will respond as necessary to the situation.
Fans are reminded that a modified security pat-down will again be conducted at all entry gates at Jaguars home games. This will be a quick process, but all fans are strongly encouraged to make plans to arrive at the stadium a little early because of this security measure.
Other security measures are no different than they have been for the Jaguars' last four seasons. Purses or bags no larger than 12x12x12 inches are allowed, 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. Prohibited items include the following:
- Laser pointers
- Cameras with lens longer than six inches
- Food or beverages from outside the stadium
- Pets (except special service animals)
- Infant carriers/strollers
- Sticks or poles
- Video equipment and tape recorders
- Coolers or containers, cans, cups or bottles
- Noise makers, whistles or air horns
- Knives, guns or any weapons or explosives
- Seat cushions
- Purses or bags larger than 12x12x12 inches
