JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars are celebrating 25 seasons on the First Coast with a special Throwback Thursday at TIAA Bank Field on Thursday, Aug. 29 for the final preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons. The team is harking back to the first decade of Jaguars football when the Jaguars took the field in 1995 for their inaugural season and inviting fans to join in a tribute to the 90s.
“There’s a certain nostalgia to the early years of Jaguars football, and we’re really excited to have fun with it next Thursday night,” said Jaguars Chief Marketing Officer Julian Duncan. “From a ‘Space Jam’ inspired kickoff video to special performances by THE ROAR, we’re bringing the 90s to every part of the game day experience. We hope fans will come dressed in their throwback Jags gear and join our tribute to the 25th season.”
Some of the greatest music hits of the late 90s originated from Jacksonville-grown artists, many of whom formed super groups including 95 South, 69 Boyz and the Quad City DJ’s. Members of the Quad City Family will perform a halftime mashup of their biggest hits from the 90s including “Whoot There it Is,” “Space Jam,” “C'Mon N' Ride It (The Train),” and “Tootsee Roll.” The group will perform atop the Dick’s Wings Rally Zone in the north end zone which is open to any guest with a game ticket. The First DUUUVAL of the game will be delivered by Quad City Family member Jay McGowan, who co-wrote and co-produced each of these hits resulting in more than 25 million album sales and multiple Grammy nominations.
The Jaguars have also created one-of-a-kind 90s fan packs available exclusively with a ticket to the final preseason game. The limited supply of throwback fan packs include:
