NFL’s Jaguars announce $63m stadium redevelopment

NFL (National Football League) team Jacksonville Jaguars have announced $63 million plans to redevelop their EverBank Field stadium.

The Florida franchise has agreed terms with the City of Jacksonville to undertake major enhancements that include new giant scoreboards in each end zone, that will be the largest of their kind in the world, and swimming pools for spectators to watch the matches from.

Shahid Khan, owner of the Jaguars, said: "We support Mayor [Alvin] Brown's initiatives to bring new energy to Downtown Jacksonville and the city's urban core…and the enhancements to EverBank Field that we are announcing today will help position Jacksonville as a home and destination for major events, now and in the future. This is indeed great news for Jacksonville."

The Jaguars currently have a deal where they play one home game at Wembley stadium, England every year for the next four years.
