NFL in Jax: Let’s Roar!
The Jacksonville Jaguars experience is unlike any other in the NFL, the Jags fans are passionate and know how to tailgate! You’ll have just as much fun outside the stadium before the game as you will inside. Follow your team to Jax or come and become a Jags fan for the day, sample our local foods, drinks our local beer, join in on the local cheers (DUUUUVAAAALLL), and maybe take a dip in the pools inside the stadium. The Jacksonville Jaguars have some of the lowest tickets prices in the NFL.
Jacksonville plays host to two major college sporting events each year, one in the fall and one in the winter, and both are more than worth the trip!
