JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – With a playoff spot now guaranteed, Jaguars fans will be eagerly watching the team's next two games.

Win either one, and the Jaguars will bring a playoff game to EverBank Field in January.

It would be Jacksonville's first home playoff game since 1999.

And fans are already talking tickets.

Currently, there are still scenarios in which the Jaguars could host either a Wild Card or a Divisional Round. The earliest tickets would go on sale for a home playoff game would be next week.

Season ticket holders have already been given the chance to opt-in and claim their current seat if the Jaguars lock up a home playoff game.

McDonald Burch said he and his wife, who are season ticket holders, opted in for the playoffs when the team called. 

“It was something that we really needed -- fans, but also the city of Jacksonville,” Burch said of the team's success-filled season.

Season ticket holders, like Burch, have until the end of this week to opt-in for potential playoff tickets, according to the Jaguars. Until a home game is set, they will not be charged anything. 

To opt-in, call a member experience specialist at 904-633-2000.

Fans who aren't current season ticket holders can lock up playoff tickets for a home game by signing up for 2018 season tickets right now and making a $100 per seat deposit.

The deposit will go toward the season ticket purchase in 2018 and will make them eligible for the priority presale on this season's playoff tickets.

To opt-in for that, go to www.jaguars.com/playoffs.

Any other tickets left after the priority presale will go on sale to the public.

“It’s great,” Burch said. “You can’t even imagine how I feel, and the way Jacksonville feels at the present time.”

Jaguars representatives said the NFL sets the prices for tickets, and the costs haven't been determined yet.

If the Jaguars win the division and get the No. 3 seed, their home game will be either Jan. 6 or 7.
