The Jaguars announced today that they have implemented an aggressive new lower ticket price and payment program designed to fill ALLTEL Stadium in 2003.
"Jaguars fans asked for more affordable ticket prices and an easier way to purchase tickets. We listened," Wayne Weaver said. "The new lower price structure is part of our continued effort to re-energize the Jaguars fan base."
Ticket prices have been lowered by an average of 18% for new season ticket holders. The Jaguars now have approximately 20,000 tickets at $20 per game or below, including 4,200 seats that have been priced at $13.50 per game for the 2003 season.
Also, for the first time, the Jaguars have established a seven-month payment program called FlexPay that will allow all of their multi-year season ticket holders to pay for their season tickets over seven months.
New Jaguars Coach Jack Del Rio was in attendance at today's press conference and spoke passionately about how Jacksonville's 12th Man can be a huge factor in helping the Jaguars maximize home field advantage.
"We are going to reestablish our house," Del Rio said. "We will have an exciting product on the field and my plea is that we fill the stadium and get it rockin' again."
Weaver stated that he is looking forward to a new era both on and off the field.
"We are excited about the new era of Jaguars football," he said. "We think we have given the fans everything they have asked for."
Weaver also spoke about the renovations currently taking place at ALLTEL Stadium. These include an 18,000 square foot sports bar, a new south end zone terrace, a 700 person terrace suite, and new escalators and elevators. The sports bar and south end zone terrace will be available to all fans in attendance before, during and after each game and will feature a view of both the field and the St. John's River.
