History of EverBank Field
Ground was broken on the stadium on January 3, 1994. EverBank Field was completed a little over a year later, replacing Gator Bowl Stadium which was built in the same spot back in 1949. The new stadium still includes portions of the old stadium such as the pedestrian ramp system and the West Upper Deck section- dating back to 1982.
In 1996 the city of Jacksonville approved a $219.5 million bond issue, which included $49 million going to towards the renovation of the old Gator Bowl Stadium. In doing so, the city was hoping to attract a new NGL team. Their plan proved successful as they were awarded the 30th NFL franchise –the Jacksonville Jaguars.
EverBank Field hosted Super Bowl XXXIX where the New England Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21. Before the 2005 season team officials laid out black tarps to block seven sections due to low attendance. It’s believed that the 2008 Financial Crisis plays a major part into why attendance has been low.
In November of 2013 the city of Jacksonville approved $63 million in improvements. These included two brand new end zone scoreboards that will be the biggest of their kind, unique food offerings, interactive activities, and a new platform area in the north end zone with pools.
