EverBank Stadium

The Jaguars’ home stadium has undergone significant changes and upgrades in its 22-year history. But as many new buildings and designs have come on line around the NFL, Jacksonville is still able to boast one of the most fan-friendly and technologically-advanced stadiums in the league.

The Cool Zone is a shaded outdoor space and puts your event in the middle of all the action!

The Cool Zone lives just between the general bowl of EverBank Stadium and the new Daily’s Place amphitheater. Newly renovated in 2017, this covered, outdoor area has built-in concessions and video technology. It set’s up perfectly for a picnic, corporate gathering, family reunion and many other events.
