JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars expect to return to full capacity at TIAA Bank Field the for the start of the NFL season.

“As we kick off season ticket renewals, the health and safety of our fans, stadium employees and team remain a top priority. We’re executing a plan to reunite and rally around Jaguars football this fall, and, as we did in 2020, we will continue to work alongside local government and medical experts to ensure we’re doing what’s best for our community,” Jaguars senior vice president of sales and service and chief content officer Chad Johnson said.

No team in the NFL last year had a full capacity stadium for games amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
