Jaguars celebrate 904 day, encourage fans to show their team pride for free tickets

·2 min read

The Jacksonville Jaguars regular season kickoff is officially just one week away. Anticipation is building for fans, and the team knows that their supporters want to get involved in wishing them well before the grueling 17-game schedule gets underway.

Today’s date, September Fourth, has been dubbed 904 Day in honor of Duval County, Florida’s area code. The Jaguars are encouraging all die-hard Jacksonville Fans to get involved in celebrating their hometown by sending them their most enthusiastic and creative “DUUUVAL” chant for a chance to win free tickets to a game this season.

The race is officially on to show the Jaguars the most creative and excited “DUUUVAL” chant of all time. It might seem like a silly sweepstakes opportunity, but the team knows that Jacksonville fans are all too serious in their support of their beloved team.

This competition is just one of what is sure to be a series of pre-kickoff activities that the team will undertake to drum up support ahead of their 2022 redemption campaign.

There is a sort of sick irony to all this, in that a team that has lost so many games over the past two seasons is seeking the most vociferous chant of support. Some might think that the best way to secure the adulation they’re looking for might be to win football games, but free tickets will probably do the trick as well.

2022 will be an exercise in rebuilding the Jaguars roster and reputation for the front office and coaching staff, and for fans should be an exercise in patience. Though Jacksonville has valuable pieces in place at key positions on their team, it will take more than chants or tickets to get back to playing winning football in the 904.
