EverBank Field (formerly Jacksonville Municipal Stadium and Alltel Stadium) is a football stadium home to the Jacksonville Jaguars. EverBank Field is used primarily as a football stadium but does host other events like monster truck shows and concerts. The stadium hosts a number of college football events each year such as the Florida vs. Georgia Football Classic and the Gator Bowl. EverBank Field is composed of a few historic portions from the notable Gator Bowl Stadium. Talk of renovating Gator Bowl Stadium began in January 1993 when representatives from the University of Florida and the University of Georgia negotiated with representatives from the city of Jacksonville to renew the contract to host the Florida vs. Georgia Football Classic. Discussion between the three parties continued until they reached an agreement on March 23rd, 1993. The agreement consisted of a five-year contract (1997-2002) between the two universities upon the passing of the $49 million renovation bond issued through the Jacksonville City Council and the city completing the renovations by the 1996 game. The bond was approved by the city on May 11th and the stipulations of the agreement were put into action. The bond approval attracted interest by investors who wanted to see an NFL franchise in Jacksonville. City officials and investors successfully negotiated a deal that included a pledge to spend $121 million on renovations to the Gator Bowl in order to properly accommodate a football team. On November 30th, 1993, Jacksonville was awarded the 30th NFL franchise and the Jaguars became the first NFL expansion team to play its first game in a new stadium when they played their debut home game during the 1995 NFL season. Jacksonville Municipal Stadium was changed to Alltel Stadium after Alltel bought naming rights to the stadium in 1997. The deal expired in January 2007 and the 67,164 (expandable to 76,867) seat stadium went back to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium until EverBank bought the naming rights in 2010.
