Jaguars Threaten Move Without $1B From Jacksonville Taxpayers

Sep 23, 2023

The Jacksonville Jaguars have gone public with their demands for stadium funding — even proposing relocation if $1 billion in taxpayer money is not secured.

“Do you want to keep the NFL in Jacksonville?” That was the response from Jaguars president Mark Lamping at the AXS DRIVE conference when asked about a theoretical vote from Jacksonville residents on approving the team’s desired deal.

In June, the Jaguars released renderings of their “Stadium of the Future” — a large-scale revamp of the publicly owned TIAA Bank Stadium that would include a stadium canopy to beat the Florida heat. The project could surpass $2 billion in total costs, and the team is seeking a 50-50 split with the city.
