Sunday's Wild-Card playoff between the Jaguars and New England
Patriots will be televised locally because this morning fans bought
the 2,100 tickets that needed to be sold for the blackout to be lifted.
However, about 2,000 tickets remain, "so fans who want to attend
the game should still keep coming and keep calling," said Bill
Prescott, Jaguars vice president, chief financial officer. "We want
to beat the stadium attendance record that was set last Monday
night." That's when 74,143 fans attended the Jaguars-Steelers
The blackout was lifted not as a result of a company stepping
forward to purchase the remaining tickets, but because of the
tremendous support of the Jaguars' fans.
The Jaguars Ticket office will be open until 6:00 today, and tickets
can also be purchased by telephone at (904) 633-2000 or (800)
618-8005. Tickets are priced at $35, $45, $60 and $85.
The Will Call windows at the North End Zone will open at 9:00 a.m.
Sunday for fans who have yet to pick up their tickets and those who
ordered by phone, but they are urged to come early to avoid the
lines. A photo ID will be required to pick up tickets at Will Call.
