EverBank Stadium (formerly TIAA Bank Field) is the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars. It also hosts college sports, concerts and special events through the year. Like the other NFL franchises in Florida, the Jaguars don’t have a permanent or retractable roof at their home stadium. Without a climate controlled environment, fans will want to know where the seats in the shade are located because it gets hot in Florida! Use this article in combination with the EverBank Stadium seating chart to find the shaded seats at EverBank Stadium. 

Where are the seats in the shade and sun at EverBank Stadium?

Generally, the seats in the shade at EverBank Stadium are located:

  • South End Zone: Shaded behind the south end zone
  • Southwest Corner: Shaded in the corner on the home side of the field

And the seats in the sun at EverBank Stadium are located:

  • North End Zone: Sunny behind the north end zone
  • East Sideline: Visitor side of the field is exposed to the sun

Most NFL games at EverBank Stadium kick off in the 1:00pm hour with the occasional night game or late afternoon start. College games played at EverBank Stadium can have later afternoon kickoffs and concerts usually start in the early evening.

EverBank Stadium Orientation to the Sun

EverBank Stadium is oriented in a northeast to southwest direction. By noon the sun is high in the sky near the south end zone. Over the course of the afternoon the sun dips down behind the video board and eventually sets near the corner where the home side meets the south end zone. 

The graphic below shows the approximate location of the sun throughout the day on September 1st.

Where to Buy Tickets

Ticketmaster is the official ticketing site for the Jaguars. It is also where you can buy Verified Resale tickets. Season ticket holders may also list unused seats on SeatGeek and Stubhub so consider checking all for prices and availability.

Seats in the Sun and Shade at Early Afternoon Jaguars Games

Let’s get this out of the way… there are simply not many shaded seats at EverBank Stadium​. This is unfortunate because the first few weeks of the NFL season are hot in Florida. Fans won’t have much relief from the sun unless they’re lucky enough to have seats for a luxury box and can watch from inside. Almost every seat in the stadium is exposed to the elements. There is no canopy or overhang to give fans shade or cover like at other ballparks and stadiums. 

It is possible to find a seat under cover in the 2 or 3 rows farthest back in the 200-level. However, there is minimal overhang from the upper deck so don’t count on these to provide much cover. The best bet for finding shade is to pick a seat in the south end zone. Sections 146-150 will eventually get some shade over the course of the afternoon as the sun dips behind the video board. Seats farther from the field in these sections will get shade sooner than seats closer to the field.

Seats in the Sun and Shade at Late Afternoon Jaguars Games

When the Jaguars or a college team kick off later in the afternoon, shade is a bit easier to find. Early in the game the 146-150 sections in the south end zone should all be shaded. Eventually 100-level and 200-level sections on the home side of the field will get some shade as well, starting with sections 101 and 201 and going up sequentially.

Late in the day seats behind the south end zone and on the west side of the stadium are shaded. Seats on the east side of the stadium stay sunny the longest.
