Here’s What You Need To Know Sunday’s Jaguars Vs. Bills Playoff Game

Jan 4, 2018

With a sellout crowd expected for the Jaguars first home playoff game in nearly two decades, the team is encouraging fans to arrive early both for traffic flow and to enjoy a full slate of pregame festivities.

Parking lots around EverBank Field will open at 9 a.m. and gates one and four will open at 10 a.m.  Fans who enter the stadium by noon will receive an official rally towel giveaway. 

Due to the short turnaround time between public on-sale dates and the game, the majority of tickets for Sunday’s game are being distributed via mobile devices. 

Fans are reminded to make sure their smartphones are fully charged and to have the tickets already pulled up on their screens at the gate.

Pregame Celebrations

The national anthem will be performed by Susan Tedeschi of the Tedeschi Trucks Band.  She will be accompanied by ROAR cheerleader Kinsey, who will interpret for the hearing impaired. 

The colors will be presented by a joint color guard.  A 100-yard field flag will be displayed by Champions Club and charter-year season ticket members.  Following the anthem, a flyover will be performed by the Black Diamond Jet Team flying three L-39 aircraft out of Lakeland, Fla.
