The NFL announced the cancellation of its International Series for the upcoming season on Monday as the world continues to battle the coronavirus.
The Jaguars were scheduled to play two home games at London’s Wembley Stadium. Those games will now be moved back to TIAA Bank Field, giving Jacksonville a full slate of eight home games for the first time since the 2012 season.
The NFL is expected to release the regular-season schedule later this week.
The Jaguars announced a “Back to Football Flex Plan” following the league’s decision, a move Jaguars president Mark Lamping described in a statement.
“Our ticket sales and service team members, along with others in the organization, have spent the last few weeks checking in with all of our season ticket members,” Lamping said. “The most common emotion we’ve sensed is one of cautious optimism. Everyone is eager to get back to football and their own game day traditions, but we understand that the unknown has made it difficult for many of our season ticket members to commit. We hope these new options give our fans both flexibility and peace of mind that the Jaguars family is here for them now and always.”
The new features outlined in the “Back to Football Flex Plan” reflect options available to both new and renewing season ticket members:
*The deadline for existing season ticket members to renew their seats has been extended to June 5, 2020.
*No new payments for season tickets will be required until June 20.
*The Jaguars’ traditional seven-month extended payment plan remains available for 2020 season ticket purchases.
*For greater flexibility, season ticket members may take advantage of a two-year season ticket package that allows for a significant deferral of your first-year payment.
*Given the evolving nature of COVID-19, full refunds on 2020 season ticket memberships will be available to all season ticket members at any time prior to the start of the NFL season.
*Existing season ticket members facing a COVID-19 medical hardship are eligible to take a year off with no effect on their membership status or loss of their seats.
Tickets to the returning games will be available as follows for season ticket members:
Current season ticket members, both renewed and non-renewed, will have the option to include both games in their membership.
New season ticket memberships will now include all 10 home games (eight regular season and two preseason).
