The Jacksonville Jaguars agreed to terms with the City of Jacksonville to undertake almost $63 million in major enhancements to EverBank Field, the team announced.

Part of the stadium upgrades include two new end zone video scoreboards that will be the largest in the world.

The North end zone will see the biggest change, as the team says they will introduce a world-class entertainment and viewing area for fans that will position the stadium as a destination on NFL game days and to help attract and keep premier events in the Jacksonville area.

"We support Mayor (Alvin) Brown's initiatives to bring new energy to Downtown Jacksonville and the city's urban core," Jaguars owner Shahid Khan said, "and the enhancements to EverBank Field that we are announcing today will help position Jacksonville as a home and destination for major events, now and in the future. This is indeed great news for Jacksonville."
