The official unveiling of the new EverBank Field video boards will take place on July 26, and country music superstar Carrie Underwood is coming to Jacksonville to perform in concert, capping an exciting evening at EverBank Field. The full event will begin with a soccer friendly between Fulham Football Club and D.C. United, followed by the official unveiling of the video boards, and finally a live concert by Underwood. The event will be free to Jaguars season ticket members.
“We are thrilled to make this already-exciting evening even greater with the addition of Carrie Underwood,” said Shahid Khan, owner of both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham FC. “This will be an historic evening for our community and a memorable experience for fans of the Jaguars, fans of soccer, and fans of Carrie Underwood. It’s really three major events in one evening in Jacksonville, and I know Jacksonville will respond and celebrate like no other city in the nation. We’re proud to offer this at no cost to our season ticket members as another way to show our appreciation for their support.”
The evening will begin with a 6 p.m. friendly match between Fulham and D.C. United. Following the match, at around 8 p.m., the new stadium video boards will be officially unveiled for the first time.
