JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Expect some changes to this year’s Georgia-Florida football game. There will be limited capacity at the stadium. And fan-favorites like RV City, the Hall of Fame luncheon and Duuuval’s Bold City Bash will not happen this year.

In a news release issued Friday, Mayor Lenny Curry said, “The annual Georgia-Florida Football Classic is one of our city’s most well-known and celebrated traditions. We are both thankful and excited that we are able to carry on with the game this year. We have implemented and will continue to maintain regulations for the safety of all those attending. Nevertheless, we will ensure a fun and safe event as we celebrate this college football rivalry in our City.”

The City of Jacksonville will continue to host six information zones within the Sports Complex. That’s where fans can find first aid, transportation information, directions and answers to any other game-related questions they may have.
