Jags' EverBank Field to get $63 million renovation, world class scoreboards
Some of the largest scoreboards in the world will reside in Jacksonville at EverBank Field.
The scoreboards are only part of a reported $63 million renovation that will be paid for by the Jaguar's owner and the city of Jacksonville.
The announcement this week may put an end to talk of the team moving to Los Angeles, and as for speculation about playing more games in London, Jags owner Shad Khan said the moves are a statement to the “NFL, to the nation and to the world that Jacksonville is world class”
Khan says the Jaguars are only focused on the one game a year the NFL wants his team to play in London the next four years.
However, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently said the league could ask the Jaguars to play two games a year in London. Khan said Wednesday that he is "going to cross that bridge when we get to it."
Khan was on hand for the Jaguars announcement that the team and the city of Jacksonville would combine on a $63 million project to put new video scoreboards in each end zone for the 2014 season. Each would scoreboard would be 55 by 301 feet, making them the largest of their kind in the world.
Other improvements include renovations to the North End Zone that will include pools and amenities that according to Khan will make it “a world-class entertainment and viewing area.”
