Jaguars playoff tickets sell out fast

Jacksonville to host first playoff game since 1999 season

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jaguars fans rushed to get tickets to the first NFL playoff game in Jacksonville in nearly two decades, and within an hour of opening sales to the general public, all 64,431 were sold.

Tickets to the AFC Wild Card game the Jaguars will host either Jan. 6 or 7 went on sale to season ticket holders Tuesday, group ticket buyers at 10 a.m. Wednesday and the general public at 3 p.m., but only through the official Jacksonville Jaguars app.

“The response from Jaguars fans has been nothing short of outstanding,” said Chad Johnson, Jaguars senior vice president of sales and service.  “Momentum from the end of the season home games has been building, and the atmosphere at our first playoff game in nearly two decades will undoubtedly continue to be electric."

Due to the short turnaround, playoff tickets will be delivered only to a mobile device. There will be no printed tickets to the game. But that didn't stop people from showing up at the ticket window of EverBank Field.

"I'm just excited to be here," fan Justin Glenn said. "It's a long time coming, as a matter of fact."

The playoff game marks the team's first home playoff game since the 1999 season. Who the Jaguars will face and exactly when the game will be played will be determined after Sunday's game.

The Jaguars said some premium seating -- such as suites and cabanas -- was still available and asked people to call 904-633-2000. Verified resale tickets are also available through Ticketmaster.
