A love of football season is in my blood. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve watched football on the weekends in the fall. It’s a love that has been passed down to me from my parents and one that I’ve already began sharing with my girls.
My husband and I have been NFL Jacksonville Jaguars season ticket holders for over 10 years – it’s our passion. We want to share our love of football with our girls, so when the two seats next to ours became available a few years ago… we bought them too! (Typically, we sell the extra seats or share them with friends.)
This football season is extra special for us, Maggie went to her first preseason game a few weeks ago and she loved it! Next year, we’ll probably be ready for Molly to go too.
This year, the NFL introduced the ALL-CLEAR policy which require fans to leave their bags at home or in the car for speedier access to stadiums and enhanced security. As a fan that typically ‘travels light’ to home games, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve carried a bag to the stadium. I’d rather have my hands free for cheering!
However, I am 100% behind the NFL’s ALL-CLEAR policy. It’s not meant to restrict fans from having a good time – it’s simply a measure to keep us safe. As I begin taking my children to more and more games over the next few years, I want to concentrate on enjoying the game with my kids and know that we are safe. That’s my main priority – a safe environment and it’s the NFL’s priority too. They are following the lead of other leagues and I welcome the extra safety precautions.
As a season ticket holder, the Jaguars have done a great job of informing us of the new policies. In fact, we received a free, clear bag to use at home games – complete with the team logo! What’s not to love?!
