Jaguars Look For City Support With $4M Upgrades To EverBank Field Wi-Fi System

A deal for $4M worth of work on a Wi-Fi system at EverBank Field “could be voted on when Jacksonville’s City Council meets Tuesday,” according to Steve Patterson of the FLORIDA TIMES-UNION. The Jaguars “want the city to split the cost of work at the city-owned stadium, with legislation being introduced next week” that would take $1.25M from the city’s banking fund, "an account used to cover big-ticket items.” The legislation “requires the football team to spend” another $1.8M, with about $1M more “coming from projected savings that would have been recovered" from an estimated $63M of other ongoing work at the stadium. The deal is “expected to be brought to the council as an emergency next week with the hope of getting the measure approved that night and work at the stadium started in coming weeks.” The Jaguars “want to have the Wi-Fi system ready" for the July 26 friendly between Jaguars Owner Shahid Kahn’s EPL club Fulham FC and MLS club DC United (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 6/19).
