A tailgate party is always a fun social event - hot dogs on the grill, ice cold beer in the cooler, and a clear view of TIAA Bank Field, right before the big game. Being the one person who doesn't have a Jaguars parking space booked before the game is not so fun. The Jacksonville Jaguars are as ferocious as their namesake, and they often draw a crowd, despite the fact that the franchise is only 18 years old. The stadium is as old as the team - it was the first occasion where a brand-new expansion team played its first home game of its first season in a brand-new stadium. This behemoth was built over the ashes of the previous Gator Bowl in about 19 months, opening for business in August 1995. The stadium has a capacity of over 67,000, which can be expanded to about 76,800 for special major league games. These seats fill up quick, making it hard to find a Jacksonville Jaguars parking place if you are late for a game. If you plan ahead before game-day, you can book a parking spot with ParkWhiz so you can hold a tailgate party, not just be the person who only gets to watch.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have their genesis in the 1995 NFL Expansion, but they weren't the first to play football in the Jacksonville area. Football has been popular in Jacksonville and its environs since about 1933, when it began to host the Florida vs. Georgia Football Classic, a college football rivalry that continues to this day. After unsuccessful attempts to draw teams such as the Colts and the Saints, Jacksonville was finally awarded an NFL expansion team in 1995, a surprise due to the smaller size of the Jacksonville metropolitan area. To this date, Jacksonville has six NFL playoff appearances, in 1996 through 1999, 2005 and 2007, the Jaguars parking themselves into history with an energetic start. The Jaguars also won two AFC Central Division Championships in 1998 and 1999. The former EverBank Field hosted its first Super Bowl in 2005, albeit without its tenant. The Jaguars will only improve in quality as time goes on, but TIAA Bank Field parking will not likely get much better. The TaxSlayer Gator Bowl is hosted annually at TIAA Bank Field, typically at the end of December or beginning of January. It is one of the oldest bowl games in college football, having started in 1946 at the former Gator Bowl Stadium, the predecessor of TIAA Bank Field. Previous names for the event include the Mazda Gator Bowl, Outback Gator Bowl, Toyota Gator Bowl Konica Minolta Gator Bowl and the Progressive Gator Bowl. Since 2015, the bowl has had a six-year arrangement for tie-ins where SEC teams would play ACC teams for half the years and Big Ten teams for the other half.
