JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – First Coast fans let the world know emphatically that it was time for Jaguars football when Jacksonville defied the odds in 1993 and was awarded an NFL franchise. Now, 25 seasons after its debut in 1995, the team is officially inviting fans to RSVP for a celebration a quarter century in the making with today's launch of the 2019 season ticket rollout.
"This season represents a historic moment for not just our team, but the entire First Coast community," said Jaguars President Mark Lamping. "We'll celebrate the legends of the past, the players of the future and the fans that have stood by our side through it all. The 2019 season will set the stage for the next 25 years of Jaguars football in Jacksonville."
The Jaguars' silver celebration kicks off in mid-March with the start of the new league year and the unveiling of the team's 25th season commemorative logo designed to embody the spirit of DUUUVAL. Throughout the season, legends will be honored at each home game as part of the All-25 Team, comprised of the 25 best alumni players in franchise history. The game day experience will feature throwback elements to honor the early years. The team will embark on a city-wide community impact project encouraging volunteerism, and season ticket members will have opportunities to win unique memorabilia and experiences only available in 2019.
With today's season ticket rollout, existing season ticket members will receive a renewal notice via email with a link to their account manager. These individuals have until Friday, March 29, to elect to renew before their seats are released and made available for existing member relocation and for purchase by new season ticket buyers.
Loyalty pricing remains in effect for the fourth year in a row, ensuring renewing season ticket members always pay less than new buyers in the same seating category. In addition, season ticket members can take advantage of priority purchasing at Daily's Place concerts and events and access to $3,000 in Teal Deal discounts. At this time, there is no change to the location of Jaguars-controlled parking lots and all parking prices remain the same.
Season ticket prices in 2019 will increase by an average of only 2.4 percent. More than half of all season ticket members will experience no change or a decrease in their renewal price. General bowl season tickets will begin as low as $39. In 2018, Jaguars fans enjoyed the lowest general bowl average ticket price across all NFL teams and expect that to remain the same in 2019.
"Creating a distinct home-field advantage for our team remains a priority, which is why we continue to provide a low entry point to season ticket membership," said Chad Johnson, Jaguars senior vice president of sales and service and chief content officer. "As a relatively young team in the life of the NFL, every new fan in the stands provides a building block for the next great chapter in this franchise."
In 2018, the Jaguars welcomed more than 13,000 new season ticket members to family via the Jaguars ONE program. Continuing in 2019, Jaguars ONE includes all first-time season ticket purchasers. Program participants will be invited to attend several dedicated events throughout the entire year and receive an exclusive welcome gift, discounts on new merchandise and a clear bag to use on game day. Fans wanting to place a deposit on new season tickets during the renewal window are welcome to contact the Jaguars at (904) 633-2000. They will have the first opportunity to purchase season tickets following the renewal deadline on the March 29.
Single game tickets will be available after the release of the 2019 NFL schedule later this spring.
