While the Jacksonville Jaguars’ new practice facility isn’t completed yet, in terms of its construction, progress has continued on the project. That progress isn’t just taking place on the grounds of the facility, but also on the business end as the Jags organization came to a naming rights deal for the project.

On Monday, the team announced that the deal was with Miller Electric Company of Jacksonville. The deal will give the company naming rights to the facility for 10 years, which will be called the “Miller Electric Center.”

Jags owner Shad Khan, president Mark Lamping, general manager Trent Baalke, and coach Doug Pederson were just some of a few people to be present at the announcement ceremony. Khan took the podium to speak right in front of the construction grounds and said he was honored to do business with a company that has been a part of the Jacksonville community for a while.

“It’s an honor that a company with such deep roots in Jacksonville, dating back to 1928, will be synonymous with the success we envision for the Jaguars and Downtown Jacksonville in the years to come,” Khan said Monday. “The Miller Electric Center will be at the epicenter of everything we do as a football team, as well as an organization, and we have great ambition on and off the field. I’m personally very grateful that Miller Electric is joining us and the entire Jacksonville community for the adventure ahead.”

The Jags’ facility construction is just one of many steps the city of Jacksonville is taking to revitalize the downtown area. It’s also one of the most important steps for the Jags’ stadium of the future project, which involves renovating TIAA Bank Field in the future. When the facility is built, it will allow the Jags organization to move out of the stadium and operate outside of it.

Plans to build the facility were unanimously approved by the Jacksonville City Council in August of last season. The project was reported to cost $120 million, with the Jags and city splitting the cost 50-50.
