JACKSONVILLE COULD BE LUCRATIVE DIVISION FOE
Published November 9, 1994
The Cleveland PLAIN DEALER's Tony Grossi examined the slotting of the expansion teams, writing that the Jaguars "figure to be among the more lucrative stops for visiting clubs." They will play in the-soon-to-be renovated Gator Bowl, and have sold out the Gator Bowl's 73,000 seats through '97 at an average ticket price of $37. That would guarantee $2.7M in ticket revenue, giving each visiting club a share of $1.08M, placing the Jaguars at least in the top five in visiting gate receipts paid out. The 49ers ($2.72 million) and Giants ($2.7 million) currently have greater potential per-game receipts (Tony Grossi, CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER, 11/6). For their part, the Carolina Panthers are guaranteeing $1.28M in visiting gate receipts.
