The Jaguars have announced that, with the assistance of a 24-hour extension, enough tickets have been sold to lift the blackout for Monday night’s game against the Ravens.
As of Friday, roughly 3,000 tickets remained. It’s unknown whether the tickets were sold to the general public or whether the Jaguars paid 34 cents on the dollar for each unsold ticket, a tactic that the league allows in order to circumvent the requirement that all non-premium tickets be sold for the game.
The Jaguars have sold out, technically, every regular-season game since the end of the 2009 season. The team’s most recent home against, against the Bengals, was sold out only after the team and Bud Light partnered to cough up the cash for the unsold tickets. At the time, the Jaguars called it a one-time deal.
Fans may want to save their stubs from this game. With the Jags at 1-5 and with a trip to Houston up next, followed by a bye week, the Jags could enter the break at 1-7, and Monday night’s game could be the final home game for coach Jack Del Rio.
