I want to explain something that may be new to you. In the past, we could wait for the mini-packs to come out and pick our favorite 4 home games. If we didn’t want the four games, we waited for the single game tickets and bought the games we wanted to see. Simple, no hassle, no rush. Right?
That isn’t the game Wayne Weaver and the Jaguars want to play anymore and this year might be different. Consider this… what if all but 4,000 seats are sold to season ticket holders? Season ticket holders get first crack at single game tickets. The Denver game? Sold out before you get a chance. The Indianapolis game? Sorry, sold out before you knew what happened. Monday night Titans? Nope, sorry. Philadelphia? Cleveland? Sorry, no tickets, try stub hub. We do have a few left over for Oakland, but you better buy now. You hang up on the ticket office and wonder what happened.
The way things have been are not the way things are going to remain, not if Wayne and Tony have anything to say about it. They want EVERY Jaguar ticket sold before you get a shot at it. Want a ticket? Buy a season ticket, it is your only chance to see the Jaguars. Well, you can always go to the Stadium and get some from “local” vendors. Might pay a bit extra. Might not find 4 together either. Take your chance.
Here are the facts, about 11,000 season tickets remain to be sold. June will sell about 4,000 of them. July is the biggest month traditionally, maybe 5,000 sold. That leaves about 2,000 tickets left. The 48,000 season ticket holders have first bid on those seats. My wife asks me all the time if I got 4 tickets to Denver for her brother and father and friends. They aren’t on sale yet and my never be. I am getting nervous. Yes, Jaguar tickets are becoming hard to get, or are about to become so.
If you were counting on buying them because you always could, you might be surprised. It might not be that way any more. You would be better off right now buying season tickets and selling the games you don’t want than waiting to buy the ones you do. It might be the best route to take. Just guessing and I might be wrong, but I don’t think I am.
