JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's the temple of teal. The home of the big cats. But fans say watching them take a bite out of the competition at EverBank Field, means they get a chunk out of your wallet too.
"You spend $20 for parking, $60 for your ticket, then you spend $60 more on food. That's a lot," said Raynard Jenifer.
This season fans will have another reason to cheer. According to John Oehser, fans can now bring their own food to home games. The new policy is posted at the bottom of his notebook entry on www.jaguars.com.
"You might see more people coming because it's less expensive for them to go see a game," said one mother.
Any food you bring into the stadium has to be in an 11x11 clear plastic bag, which is the size of a standard freezer bag.
The post says the food has to be unwrapped and is subject to inspection at the gate.
"I have a child with food allergies. So we travel with food everywhere. So I think it's a great idea," said Elizabeth Corbett.
"They can bring peanut butter and jelly if they need to," said another mother.
Drinks are still not allowed into the stadium, but locals say this is a step in the right direction. "It'll save people money."
The change is part of a new initiative by the Jaguars to improve the fan's experience. Oehser says it's one of many changes fans will see this season at EverBank Field.
