Owner Shad Khan and the Jaguars Foundation announced Wednesday the team has donated 1,000 tickets for Sunday’s game – 500 apiece to refugees from around the world who have settled in the Jacksonville area and to Puerto Ricans and their families who have been displaced and currently reside in the north and central Florida.
To identify the individuals, the Jaguars Foundation enlisted the support of Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida, the First Coast Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Latino Leadership, Inc., which is based in Orlando.
The Jaguars will also provide 1,500 tickets to local military members at a subsidized cost of $20 per ticket. The USO helped the Jaguars distribute the tickets.
“The Jaguars’ first home playoff appearance in a very long time is an event that should be shared with as many people as possible, across all spectrums, who call Jacksonville their home,” Khan said in a statement.
