JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - One hour after the Jaguars made playoff tickets available to the general public, the team announced the game had sold out Wednesday.
The team said it sold roughly 20,000 tickets in 25 hours.
The Jags still don’t know their opponent, but they know they’ll host a team in the wild card round of the playoffs on either January 6 or 7.
Jags home playoff tickets may be gone for now, but if you haven’t gotten them, all hope is not lost.
In a statement, the team told Action News Jax: “A limited number of additional tickets may become available over the next several days if additional inventory is released from the NFL, visiting team and other parties.”
To make sure they would not be denied, fans started lining up hours before the tickets went on sale at 3 p.m.
“I don’t care if it’s hours, or whatever, as long as I’m in the stadium for that historic day,” said Ben Reed, who was the first person in line.
Reed said he has been a fan for the last 22 years.
“Since the beginning, ’95,” Reed said. “[I] worked at the stadium for the first five years. [I] was here for the last playoffs in ‘99.”
Reed said his tickets are in the mail.
Fans said a 10-plus win season, and a nearly immediate sell out, proves this team and this city are ready for playoff football.
