EverBank Signs Come Down As Transition To TIAA Bank Field Begins

The EverBank Field signs are coming down at the Jacksonville Jaguars’ downtown stadium.

By Monday afternoon workers had completed removing the main EverBank Field sign at the East Entrance.

The letters F-i-e-l-d had also been taken down at the West Entrance as the Welcome to Rockville stage and surrounding festival stadium area was being disassembled.

The stadium is in the process of being renamed TIAA Bank Field. Renderings of what the stadium will look like after the name change were released at the Jaguars’ annual State of the Franchise meeting on April 19.

“Our bank’s relationship with the Jaguars – on and off the field – goes back to 2010, and we’re very proud to continue this great partnership for years to come at TIAA Bank Field,” said Blake Wilson, president and chief executive officer of EverBank,” in a statement earlier this month.

TIAA completed its acquisition of EverBank in June of 2017. TIAA  said at the time the combined bank would be headquartered in Jacksonville and would maintain a strong local presence in the community.

As part of that commitment, TIAA Bank announced at the State of the Franchise it would build 100 homes in Florida through financial contributions and volunteerism in celebration of TIAA’s 100th Anniversary.

TIAA is also working on replacing the EverBank Signs at its downtown and Brooklyn office towers.
