Jaguars owner Shad Khan hopes to extend London series

Monday February 9th, 2015

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan said the team hopes to continue playing one game per season in London beyond 2016, Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal reports.

The Jaguars are halfway through a four-year deal to play one home game per season at Wembley Stadium in London. Khan purchased the team in 2011 and said it was moved from No. 32 in revenue to No. 22 last season.

“It’s been really great for us,” Khan said.  “Our goal is to extend it.”

Last year, team and city officials said games in London ensure that the team will not be relocated from Jacksonville.

Jacksonville finished No. 21 in overall attendance last season and lost to the Dallas Cowboys in London in Week 10. In 2013, they lost to the San Francisco 49ers in London.

The Jaguars will play the Buffalo Bills in London on Oct. 25.
