No more free drink promotions planned
By Michael DiRocco
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars' ticket promotion of two free drinks with a ticket purchase is one and done.
Team spokesman Dan Edwards said there are no plans to offer the promotion for the Jaguars’ next home game on Oct. 20. Fans that purchased a $45 ticket to last Sunday’s game against Indianapolis during a three-hour window on Thursday were given two free drink coupons that could be used for various beverages, including beer.
"At this point, there's no plan to do it again," Edwards said. "That was a very short-term, three-hour promotion that took place on one day."
The Jaguars do not release the results of promotion, but Edwards said he would describe the response as "OK." The team announced Sunday it had distributed 59,695 tickets for the game at EverBank Field, which the Jaguars lost 37-3.
"It was planned, but we do a lot of different promotions," Edwards said. "Some go well and some not so much. That was one of the many promotions that we’ve done."
