The Jaguars began to see an uptick in ticket sales after the first round of the NFL draft, and not because everyone in Jacksonville is eager to see Tyson Alualu.
Jacksonville hosts Denver in their home opener, and after the Broncos chose hometown hero Tim Tebow in the first round, Jaguars group ticket sales manager Robert Tilka says, there was an immediate change in the demand for tickets.
“We have had a significant amount of more calls coming in,” Tilka told the Orlando Sentinel.
Of course, there’s a good chance that Tebow won’t even get on the field in the game. But the fans in Jacksonville want to turn out to support him anyway. Which means that if the Jaguars had chosen Tebow, they’d probably be getting a significant amount of calls for season tickets, not just single-game tickets.
