JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars and city officials have broken ground on the second phase of a $90 million upgrade to EverBank Field, which will be called Daily's Place.
The new complex adjacent to the stadium will feature an amphitheater and a multi-use, indoor practice facility.
Jaguars owner Shad Khan says ''these new facilities are part of our ambitious vision for the future of downtown Jacksonville as a world-class sports and entertainment destination.''
The Jaguars broke ground just days after completing the first phase of the project, which included improvements to EverBank Field's club seats and the creation of a new entrance to the south end zone. The second phase is expected to be completed in May 2017.
Daily's multi-year partnership includes the naming rights sponsorship for both the 5,000-seat amphitheater and the 94,000-square-foot indoor facility.
