Jaguars unveil another plan to boost ticket sales

By  | 

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars are giving
fans extra incentives to support the struggling franchise.

Owner Wayne Weaver says a rewards program for season-ticket
holders could be what saves the team. Weaver and Jacksonville mayor
John Peyton unveiled the new deal Tuesday at Jacksonville Municipal
Stadium. Weaver calls it a "one-off no-brainer."

The "Teal Deal" gives season-ticket holders coupon booklets
offering more than $2,000 in discounts from local businesses.

It's an incentive package that Weaver and Peyton hope will boost
ticket sales and help the Jaguars avoid television blackouts in
2010. Jacksonville had seven of the NFL's 20 blackouts during the
regular season.
