Jax City Council Approves Jaguars $120M Football Performance Center
The City Council unanimously approved a partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars to build the team’s proposed $120 million football performance center.
Council approved a bill 17-0 on Aug. 24 to authorize Mayor Lenny Curry’s administration to borrow $60 million to help finance the NFL team’s proposed 127,087-square-foot practice and training facility and to amend the Jaguars’ stadium lease with the city.
The Jaguars would pay for the other $60 million, according to the city’s proposed economic development agreement for the project.
The Jaguars will lease the performance center from the city. It will be northwest of TIAA Bank Field.
According to Ordinance 2021-0495, the Jaguars will move team offices; an equipment room; weight training; and medical facilities from the stadium to the performance center.
The facility also will have an indoor practice field; two outdoor natural-grass fields with about 2,300 bleacher seats; a team store; and concession facilities.
