Jaguars To Offer Poolside Cabanas In Stadium So Fans Don't Have To Watch Jaguars

Monday June 9th, 2014

Who needs South Beach when Jacksonville is ready to become the NFL's new hot spot?

In their ongoing $63 million renovation of EverBank Field, the Jaguars have decided to cut out a portion of their upper bowl (an area that is generally covered with tarps to avoid local TV blackouts) in lieu of poolside cabanas.

Yes, poolside cabanas. So instead of watching a team that's won six games the last two seasons, you can lounge near the pool and watch NFL RedZone throughout the stadium, which ESPN reported the Jaguars will show in four places so fans can track their fantasy teams.

The party deck will have two levels and two pools with 16 cabanas. The four poolside cabanas can be had for $12,500 per game, and it's an all-you-can-eat-and-drink deal (including wine and beer) for up to 50 people.

The football may be terrible, but that still sounds like a great little Sunday if you can "pool" together the cash.
