Get Ready for the Ultimate TEALgate Party


Today Touchdown Jacksonville, a local group founded by business leaders to help revive lagging Jaguar ticket sales, and the City of Jacksonville announced more details of their plans for The Ultimate TEALgate Party, while will take place before the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts game on Dec. 17, 2009. 

Beginning at 4 p.m., a festival atmosphere surrounding the stadium will be created to promote excitement and provide fans with the ultimate football fan experience.

The Ultimate TEALgate Party includes multiple stages of live entertainment, including the regional bands Flashback, The Carribean Chillers, and Cloud 9; and DJs Chill Will, EL and Ryan Ripple.  The Teal Prize Patrol will surround the stadium along with roving trivia, the Cox-Radio Pre-game show, appearances by Jaxson Deville and the ROAR Cheerleaders, food and beverage vendors and more.  There will also be a family fun-zone including goal to go, bungee run, quarterback toss, touchdown run inflatables and Radio Disney.  With the holiday season right around the corner, even Santa and his elves will make an appearance to cheer on our team.  The party will continue until 8 p.m., with kick-off at approximately 8:20p.m., when the Jacksonville Jaguars will face off against the Indianapolis Colts. 

This game will be televised nationally on NFL Network and may be pivotal in helping to determine whether or not the Jaguars earn a wildcard spot in the play-offs this year.

Fans are invited to use the JTA game day shuttles, where giveaways and other surprises will occur at each shuttle stop.  Also, fans that haven't purchased tickets are invited to enjoy the pre-game festivities. Businesses and organizations around the city are being encouraged to "Show their Teal" for this game by decorating, hanging banners, offering specials and showing their support for our team. 

"The Ultimate TEALgate Party will provide fans the ability to celebrate our Jaguars hours before kickoff and will add to the anticipation and excitement of this game," said Lenny Curry, Chairperson of the Game Day Experience for Touchdown Jacksonville.  "We are creating an environment outside the stadium which increases the enthusiasm for fans and the entire community."

Touchdown Jacksonville is offering a special ticket promotion for the December 17 game.  Single game ticket purchases, when used with the offer code "TEAL", will include 10 "Jag Dollars" per ticket, which can be used to purchase food, beverage or merchandise inside the stadium.  Group discount rates are also available for groups of 10 or more.

Tickets can be purchased through December 13 by calling 1-800-745-3000, or by visiting Jaguars.com and clicking on the Touchdown Jacksonville: Revive the Pride banner ad.  Tickets can also be purchased at the stadium through December 17.
