Jags Could Play a Game in London in 2013

Jaguars owner Shad Khan said when he purchased the team that he was interested in playing a game in London. Mark Lamping, president of non-football operations, said Thursday the Jaguars are still interested, Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reports.

“We’ve expressed an interest to the NFL in hopefully being one of those teams,” Lamping said. “We think it will increase the profile of the franchise, and Jacksonville can use it to market the city. What’s good for Jacksonville is good for the Jaguars.”

Khan indicated he plans to bring Jacksonville business leaders on the trip to attempt to attract foreign investment and business to Jacksonville.

The Rams are already committed to going to London for the next three seasons. Lamping indicated the Jaguars would probably be willing to make multiple trips to London, but he said that would be up to the league.

By having nine home games instead of 10 in Jacksonville, it would reduce the cost of season tickets, although some fans wouldn’t want to lose a home game.
