Use new Jags app for faster access to stadium
Jacksonville Jaguars have announced that the fastest way to get inside a stadium on a game day is through its smartphone app for iPhone and Android that lets fans buy tickets right with a few swipes on the screen.
Chad Johnson, Senior VP of sales at Jags, encouraged fans to download the app now even if they aren’t planning to go to the game, in case a friend or coworker changes plans at the last minute and wants to transfer their tickets.
“With the mobile app you can just forward the tickets to people,” Johnson said. “You can invite friends, you can re-sell them. If they can’t go, you can just retract them, so it becomes a much easier process for fans.”
A deep playoff run last season, new uniforms and new players make the preseason games more popular than usual. The more people that have the app before game day, the faster everyone can get in, Johnson noted.
“Check early,” Johnson said. “Go look at your tickets early, don’t let your first experience looking at your mobile tickets be when you’re showing up to the game.”
It’s also important, Johnson said, to make sure your phone is charged, especially if you’re going to Thursday night’s game straight from work.
TIAA Bank Field will provide charging stations as well as troubleshooting kiosks if you have a technical problem.
Meanwhile, the NFL franchise also announced that they will be streaming their 2018 pre-season games on the team app for free.
To watch, fans simply have to download the app, or stream it from the Jags’ official website.
According to the Jags’ team page, the live stream will be accessible to fans in the United Kingdom, Mexico and affiliate markets in Jacksonville, Orlando, Daytona, Savannah and Gainesville.
Jags president Mark Lamping released a statement on the matter, saying that the move comes as a result of the demand for the Jags on an international level.
