Stadium capacity is being limited to 25% at TIAA Bank Field for the Jaguars' upcoming season.

The NFL’s Player’s Association and team executives agreed to eliminate all four preseason games due to unnecessary travel for exhibitions.

The Jaguars were slated to play two preseason games at TIAA Bank Field, with one on August 29 against Washington D.C.’s team and another on September 3 versus the Atlanta Falcons. 

Under the latest scenario, the first time the Jaguars will play in Jacksonville will be their season opener against the Indianapolis Colts on September 13.
