Jags to introduce two-level party deck including pools and cabanas.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will offer fans the opportunity to watch games next season while sitting in a pool inside the stadium, after plans were released.
The team has taken out 9,500 seats in the north end zone and is replacing them with a two-level party deck that includes two pools and 16 cabanas complete with flush furniture.
In turn, companies or fans will be able to rent one of the four poolside cabanas on the first level for $12,500 a game, or $250 per person. The package is also set to include 50 tickets and an all-you-can-eat and drink buffet while there will be cheaper options on the second level.
According to Jaguars senior vice-president of sales, Chad Johnson, the team has already sold 65 percent of the in-stadium cabanas for the 2014 season.
“We’re targeting businesses who want to entertain some of their clients or even their own employees,” Johnson said, ESPN reports.
“What we’ve built here you can’t get anywhere else.”
The party deck is part of a $63m renovation of the EverBank Field that will include the world’s largest HD LED video screens, new seats on the field and tables in the club sections.
Nevertheless, despite all the planned upgrades on the stadium and on the infrastructure of the organisation, the Jaguars will also undoubtedly be keen on improving matters on the field after just 11 wins in the past three seasons.
Johnson conceded that due to the fact that Jacksonville has the second-highest population turnover of an NFL city after Washington D.C. it means that they must do things that no other NFL team does, as they also announced that they will show a constant stream of the NFL Red Zone on four displays so fans can watch action from around the league.
