Not surprisingly, the Jaguars bandwagon is filling up. After their division winning-two playoff victory 2017 season, the entire area is embracing what the Jags are potentially going to do, as a follow up this fall.

To that end, the team announced Thursday that ticket sales for the upcoming regular season are succeeding at a tremendous rate. In fact, the Jaguars have proclaimed that their 10,000 newly added season ticket sales are the best in the NFL this off season.

From that Jaguars website item, team President Mark Lamping expounded on their sales:

“Market demand for Jaguars season tickets has exceeded even our expectations. The momentum from a deep postseason run, combined with an outstanding slate of home opponents, has presented us with an opportunity to create a true home-field advantage for our team and continue this franchise’s progress toward financial stability.”

The Jags also announced a 90% renewal rate from last year’s season ticket base, which is another plus for the organization.

We also previously wrote in February that the team was taking their long standing tarps of unsold seats in the upper level of TIAA Bank Field for this season.

This came on the heals of getting permission from the NFL to remove the tarps for the Buffalo AFC Wildcard playoff game in January and sold an additional 3,500 seats in a matter of minutes.

Back to the Thursday update from the team, announcing that their post season rematches with the New England home opener and the Steelers November home Monday Night Football appearance have sold all the lower level seats available outside of season tickets.

However, they still have around 1,000 tickets in their “US Assure Club” and the lower bowl for season ticket purchase, and fans have until June 30th to act and purchase. Or, those and all other seats will increase by at least 10% after that date.

Keep in mind that the Jags and owner Shad Khan previously agreed to their multi-year London “home game” deal with the NFL and this season, that means the defending Superbowl champion Eagles game is in London in October.
