    March 9th Is Deadline For Jaguar Season Ticket Renewal




    March 9th is the deadline for Jaguar season ticket renewals. The Jaguars tweeted that this upcoming deadline was due to the high demand for season tickets.

    This will be the first season since 2005 that fans will not see any tarps covering seats.

Those tarps had been in place for over 10 years.

    EverBank Field will also be known as TIAA Bank Field later this year. TIAA Bank Field will be the official name of its home stadium, replacing EverBank Field.The name change comes after the sale of EverBank to TIAA in June and the new parent company will be renaming all EverBank locations as TIAA Bank.

    The name change must be officially approved by the city of Jacksonville and the Jaguars before they can tear down the signage on the front of the building and replace it with the new name.

    Jacksonville-based EverBank acquired the naming rights to the stadium in 2010, four years after the naming rights deal with Alltel lapsed. (The stadium was known as Jacksonville Municipal Stadium in the interim.) In 2014, the company extended its naming rights deal through 20...   [Read More]

    The Jaguars' Home Stadium Will Have A New Name Next Season




    EverBank Field will be known as TIAA Bank Field later this year. They team confirmed today that TIAA Bank Field will be the official name of its home stadium, replacing EverBank Field.

    The name change comes after the sale of EverBank to TIAA in June and the new parent company will be renaming all EverBank locations as TIAA Bank. 

    The name change must be officially approved by the city of Jacksonville and the Jaguars before they can tear down the signage on the front of the building and replace it with the new name.

    Krispy Kreme asked Americans to choose the next glazed doughnut flavor and aftercasting nearly two million votes online over a week, America selected lemon as Krispy Kreme Doughnuts next, all-new Glazed Doughnut flavor.

    The #VoteForGlaze campaign was the first time Krispy Kreme let America decide an all-new Glazed Doughnut flavor for the brand’s iconic Original Glazed Doughnut. The voters selected from four flavors – blueberry, caramel, lemon and maple – January 16 through 22.

    The Jacksonville Beach Pier Reopened Today




    After a year and a half of repairs, 625 feet of the Jacksonville Beach Pier is back open. The remainder is still under redesign and is. Hurricane Matthew destroyed 350ft. in 2016. New railings have been replaced along with the walkways.

    The beach pier had closed indefinitely due to damage sustained during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 and additional damage from Hurricane Irma in September 2017.

    Time estimates for rebuilding the pier have consistently been between 18 months and two years from hurricane to completion. That placed the estimated completion date between May 2018 and October 2018.

    The Jacksonville Beach Pier was designed to withstand 130 MPH winds or a Category 3 hurricane.  Part of the initial delay in rebuilding the pier was determining what went wrong. The City of Jacksonville will not release the full study, but it appears it was an error in the construction.

    It is only $3 for fisherman because not all of the pier is back open and only $1 to access.  There is not a saltwater license required to fish on the pier.
