JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars and city of Jacksonville broke ground on Friday morning for the amphitheater and indoor flex field that will be constructed outside the south end zone of EverBank Field.

The construction of the complex, which will be named Daily’s Place, is scheduled to be completed in May. It is Phase 2 of the $90 million project, which is being funded by the city and Jaguars owner Shad Khan on a 50-50 basis. Phase 1 was the renovation of the club seat areas on both sides of the stadium at a cost of $26.6 million. That was completed earlier this month.

The 94,000 square-foot flex field with a maximum roof height of 80 feet. It features multiple hangar doors that can be opened toward the amphitheater. Its roof also will cover the amphitheater, which will have 5,500 seats and be oriented to face the south end zone and fans will be able to watch performances from the Bud Light Party Zone and Terrace Suite areas on the upper decks of the south end zone.

Daily’s is a Jacksonville-owned convenience-store chain.
