Mayor Alvin Brown joined Touchdown Jacksonville Team Teal Commissioner Tony Boselli and Chair of Game Day Experience Lenny Curry in announcing the Ultimate TEALgate Party for the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday Night Football game on Dec. 5.
Mayor Brown has proclaimed Monday, Dec. 5, 2011 as "Ultimate TEALgate Day" in support of the Jacksonville Jaguars' Monday Night Football game against the San Diego Chargers. To create a fun environment for all to enjoy, the Jaguars and others will host festivities at various locations throughout downtown.
In addition to hosting an exciting football game that evening, the Jaguars will hold a special game-day experience for fans before kickoff. The pregame events will combine the enthusiasm of a pep rally with interactive activities for the whole family.
"The Jaguars are a crucial part of our city's identity. We are fortunate to have an NFL franchise because it puts Jacksonville on a national stage," said Mayor Brown. "The Ultimate TEALgate Party is a great way to celebrate our team for all that it gives to our community."
Since the Dec. 5 Jaguars game will be televised nationally, the mayor's proclamation urges Jaguars fans to fill EverBank Field to demonstrate their enthusiasm for this game and show the national audience how Jaguars fans feel about the team.
Free live entertainment, special deals and family-friendly activities will be taking place at the stadium before the game and all Jaguars supporters, ticket holders or not, are invited to be a part of the fun. Live entertainment will be in the Pepsi Plaza with a Dave Matthews Tribute band, Jaguars D-Line and an appearance by Jaxon de Ville. The ESPN Monday Night Football Countdown to Kickoff show will be displayed on an LED screen. A complete listing of activities can be found at www.coj.net.
Those attending the game are encouraged to show their support for the Jaguars by wearing the color teal. Tickets to the game are still available and can be purchased by calling (904) 633-2000 or logging onto www.jaguars.com.
