When the Jacksonville Jaguars played their first game at Alltel Stadium in 1995, they became the first team to play in a new stadium in the 1990's. In 1990, the NFL announced that it would expand to 30 teams by the start of the 1995 season. Hoping to be awarded a franchise, the Jacksonville City Council voted to commit $60 million to renovate the Gator Bowl, contingent upon the city being awarded an expansion football team.

In November 1993, the NFL awarded Jacksonville a franchise. Instead of renovating the Gator Bowl, the city decided to demolish 90 percent of the stadium and construct a new one on the same site. Completed in just 19.5 months, the stadium was completed by opening day 1995.

Originally named Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, the Jaguars played their first game at the stadium on August 18, 1995. The stadium consists of over 70,000 blue seats. Two, two tier grandstands of seats are located on both sides of the playing field. The lower deck circles the entire playing field. Two 60-by-156-foot video/scoreboards are located at both ends of the stadium. In 1997, Alltel Communications purchased the naming rights to the stadium, thus getting its present day name, Alltel Stadium. The stadium has many amenities including 10,000 club seats and two Touchdown Clubs that provide more than 65,000 square feet of air-conditioned comfort with a variety of food and beverage selections. Alltel Stadium hosts many other events other than Jaguars games, including the Gator Bowl and concerts. It also hosted the 2005 SuperBowl.
