Ahead of the game: Jaguars pull off first win season despite pandemic

Fans Follow Covid 19 Rules in Opener

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jaguars first home game of the season looked a lot different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team is taking serious safety measures to make the game day experience safe for fans in the stands.

At the top of the list is a 25% cap on seating capacity that the team announced in July.

“I think we are all capable of doing these games 25% because Jacksonville Jaguars is ahead of the game and winning the game,” Chelsea Tyrell said.

“Everything was real professional, you didn’t have to worry about getting sick the way everything is going on,” said Darrell Coats.

Fans were also required to wear face coverings throughout the stadium.

Only cash payments were accepted, and more than 700 hand sanitizer stations were in place.

“A lot of hand sanitizer areas. We will be back,” said Gennell Coats.

Meantime, the team’s victory tonight has fans excited for the next home game.

“Duval, tell Leonard Fournette we’re alright,” added one fan.

There were also changes with parking. Cars will be parked in every other spot to help with physical distancing.

Tailgating is also highly discouraged this year.
