This time last year the Jaguars were in the middle of a playoff run that took them to the brink of a Super Bowl appearance. This year? Team executives are focusing on how to make Jacksonville a sustainable, long-term home for the franchise.

Team president Mark Lamping said earlier this week that the team is starting to think about TIAA Bank Field and how it fits the team’s and fans’ needs.

“There’s no question that TIAA Bank Field has aged well,” he said (via the Jacksonville Daily Record). “But at some point in time, there’s going to have to be a stadium solution. … If we don’t start thinking about it, we’ll wake up one day and have a stadium that’s not meeting the needs of the fans or the community.”

The Jags currently lease TIAA Bank Field from the city and have an agreement in place to do so through 2030. According to The Daily Record, the stadium, which was built in 1994, has undergone $180 million in renovations since Shad Khan bought the team in 2012.

However, Lamping said the venue still lacks the amenities featured in newer stadiums in Atlanta and Minnesota and those to come in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. In total, 22 NFL teams have opened new stadiums since TIAA Bank Field opened in 1995.

“There are long-term issues that our fans deal with that ultimately we’ll have to address,”said Lamping, who was CEO of the $1.6 billion MetLife Stadium in New York before joining the Jags.

Lamping said the team’s preferred stadium solution is to upgrade TIAA Bank Field, not build a shiny new venue. However, he and Khan have plans in place to develop areas around the stadium with hotels, office space and entertainment options.

That development, paired with improvements to TIAA Bank Field, could help Jacksonville host its first Super Bowl since 2005, according to Lamping.

“I do believe the Super Bowl will come back to Jacksonville, but it’s not going to be in the short term,” he said. “It’s probably after downtown Jacksonville gets closer to realizing its full potential.”
