The Jacksonville Jaguars are celebrating their four-year commitment to playing games in London by creating unparalleled touch-points and access for fans in the United Kingdom. Whether you are already an NFL die-hard with your own team allegiance or a newcomer to the sport looking for a team to follow, the Jaguars will be reaching out to you over the next four years with some fantastic opportunities to get close to the team.
As well as staging events like the fan evenings detailed below, anyone purchasing a ticket for the Jaguars' International Series game against the San Francisco 49ers on October 27, 2013, will be able to opt-in to a Jaguars Loyalty Scheme, which offers the chance to win great competitions, including announcing a Jaguars draft pick in New York in April and attending Jaguars home games in Florida.
We are delighted to announce that NFL UK will be holding three separate fan evenings next month in Edinburgh, Leeds and Birmingham.
Former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell will be joined on-stage by coach Jeff Reinebold, a familiar face to UK fans through his appearances on Sky Sports, as they break down the Xs & Os of the game, reflect on the season so far and take a look at the playoffs.
The evening will be hosted by Sky Sports' Neil Reynolds and will kick-off with a special NFL Films presentation. You'll also have the opportunity to pose your own questions to Pro Bowl quarterback Brunell and veteran college and professional coach Reinebold, who will again be part of Sky's playoff coverage.
No one is better placed to discuss the challenge of being a quarterback in the NFL playoffs than three-time Pro Bowler Brunell. Traded from the Green Bay Packers, Brunell led the Jaguars to four consecutive playoff appearances and twice took them within a game of Super Bowl, reaching the AFC Championship game in the 1996 and 1999 seasons. He finished his career with 31,945 passing yards and 182 touchdowns and won a Super Bowl ring with the 2009 New Orleans Saints.
Here is where and when the evenings will take place:
• Edinburgh – Monday, January 7th
• Birmingham – Tuesday, January 8th
• Leeds – Wednesday, January 9th
