Jags to get new look after postseason success

From ESPN - February 12, 2018

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars will have a new look on and off the field this upcoming season.

The team announced Monday that it is removing tarps that cover four sections of EverBank Field to meet an increased demand for tickets in the wake of the team's surprising run to the AFC Championship Game.

In addition, the team confirmed that it will have new uniforms, which will be unveiled sometime in the spring. That means the team is moving on from its black and gold two-tone helmets.

The average season-ticket price will increase by an average of 10.9 percent, the team said, though the specific increase varies based on seat location. This is the first time in 10 seasons that a majority of the seats will have a cost increase, the team said.

However, the team also said it is lowering concession prices on certain items. Fans can purchase hot dogs, popcorn, bottled soda, and various other items for $5 each.

"Getting rid of the tarps has been our goal since Shad Khan purchased the team in 2012," Jaguars president Mark Lamping said. "Our fans created a real home-field advantage for our final 2017 regular-season games and home playoff appearance. We want to make sure that same home-field advantage is a reality every time the Jaguars take the field this fall by giving fans access to even more affordable tickets."

The Jaguars received permission to remove the four tarps for their playoff game against Buffalo, which was the team's first home playoff game since Jan. 23, 2000. Those tarps cover 3,501 seats, and the team said those seats will be sold for $45 each per game.
