Jacksonville Municipal Stadium



DescriptionRatingInfo
Jacksonville Municipal Stadium is a football stadium located in downtown Jacksonville, Florida next to the St. Johns River. It is the home stadium facility of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL franchise. The stadium sits on 10 acres (40,000 m²) of land and originally had a capacity of 73,000. Expansions over the next decade have brought capacity to 76,877. Municipal Stadium is used primarily as a professional football facility but does host other events including monster truck shows and concerts. It also hosts a number of annual college football games, including "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" each year between Florida and Georgia, the ACC football championship game, and a post-season bowl game, the Gator Bowl, which currently pits teams from either the Big East or Big 12 conferences against an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent. The stadium, formerly known as ALLTEL Stadium, was built on the foundations of the former Gator Bowl Stadium, which was built in 1949. Construction started January 3, 1994 and the new stadium opened on August 18, 1995 with an exhibition game with the San Francisco 49ers. Total construction time was under 20 months and total cost was $134 million – $60 million of which was provided by the city of Jacksonville. The new stadium retained the west upper deck of the old Gator Bowl, which had been added in 1982. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacksonville_Municipal_Stadium
