JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- For the first time in seven years, the Jaguars are removing a tarp covering one part of the stadium to sell more tickets.

The Jaguars season hasn't exactly been a fan's dream come true. Despite that, the big demand to watch this weekend's game has the team opening up more seats. The Jags are removing the tarp that covers one section and selling off the tickets cheap. "Just the idea of uncovering seats, it's a big first step," said President Mark Lamping.

For several years, the team was plagued by blackouts and not being able to sell tickets. But the past two years, they've revved up support. "As far as I'm concerned, there's no reason to talk blackouts," said Lamping.

But with a poor start to the season, we asked whether there was concern about the future. "Look, the NFL is tough. It's hard to win every game. We'd love to be 4 and 0, but instead we're 1 and 3, and making progress. Our best days are ahead," said Lamping.

Those tickets are $35 each and in section 403. The Jaguars president tells Action News there are still a lot of seats available.
