The NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars have been granted approval to build a $120 million football complex after the Jacksonville City Council agreed to pay costs up to $60 million. 

The project will be 127,000 square feet with training facilities for players, offices, practice fields, and grandstands for fans.

First unveiled by Jaguars owner Shad Khan in June, the complex received backing from Mayor Lenny Curry and was approved in a unanimous vote.

Construction is expected to begin at the end of the 2021 season, with a goal of opening before the 2023 season. 

Jacksonville’s new property follows the trend of enormous, state-of-the-art complexes in the NFL. 

  • The Las Vegas Raiders opened a $75 million training facility last year.
  • The Miami Dolphins revealed its $135 million practice facility last month.

Though the plan is for the city and the Jaguars to split costs, if the complex’s price tag exceeds $120 million, the team will come out of pocket for added expenses.
