JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - With the Super Bowl over, the Jaguars are looking forward to next season, which will feature a significantly upgraded Everbank Field.
“I can’t wait,” Jaguars President Mark Lamping says. “It’s gonna be a huge game changer.”
Lamping says with the new video boards, water fixtures and end zone decks, Everbank Field will finally have a personality that reflects Jacksonville.
“We have to make sure that when fans come to Everbank Field and spend their hard-earned money to come see the Jaguars that they don’t have to make sacrifices from staying at home,” he says.
The video boards will be the largest in the world, but Lamping says the story isn’t just the size.
“It’s how they’re going to be able to be used to deliver content to our fans,” Lamping says. “Our goal is to give our fans the best possible in-game experience.”
Last November the Jacksonville City Council approved the $63 million project with $20 million coming from Jaguars owner Shad Khan and the other $43 million come from the city’s hotel bed taxes.
