Opened in 1995 and with a $63-million renovation in 2004, EverBank Field hosted Super Bowl XXXIX in February 2005. Heading into the 2012 season, the Jaguars, who were the first expansion team to play its inaugural NFL game in a new stadium, have an impressive 83-53 regular season record at EverBank. Seating can be expanded to 82,000 as it is for the annual Florida-Georgia game and as it was for Super Bowl XXXIX.
EverBank Stadium is a wonder in that it took only 19-plus months from the time the old Gator Bowl was demolished until a new stadium opened in August 1995 on the shores of the St. Johns River. At that time, it represented the fastest construction of any major-league stadium in North America.
In all, 75 percent of the seats in EverBank Field (formerly Jacksonville Municipal Stadium and Alltel Stadium) are located on the sides, with 25 percent behind the end zones. The Pride of the Jaguars wall honors former Jaguars, led by All-Pro offensive tackle Tony Boselli.
