JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars have announced a sellout for the team's first home playoff game since 2000.
Jacksonville clinched the AFC South division title on Sunday. The Jaguars will host a wild-card playoff game on either Jan. 6 or 7.
“The response from Jaguars fans has been nothing short of outstanding,” said Chad Johnson, Jaguars senior vice president of sales and service.
“Momentum from the end of the season home games has been building, and the atmosphere at our first playoff game in nearly two decades will undoubtedly continue to be electric. We're thrilled for the team and our fan base to have the chance to experience the postseason once again.”
According to the Jaguars, a limited number of additional tickets may become available over the next several days.
First Coast News reached out to the Jaguars organization Wednesday regarding the potential removal of the tarps that are being used for sponsorships.
The Jaguars initially said that season-long sponsorships would prevent the removal of the tarps. However, the Jaguars received permission from the NFL and their sponsors to remove the tarps Thursday.
Presale tickets were made available for season ticket members on Tuesday. General public ticket sales were opened Wednesday at 3 p.m.
The Jaguars last hosted a playoff game on Jan. 23, 2000. Jacksonville lost to the Tennessee Titans, 33-14, in the AFC Championship Game.
