The Jacksonville Jaguars NFL American football franchise has signed up travel specialist Ocean Holidays as its latest UK-focused partner.
The UK-based company has agreed a two-year deal, from 2018 to 2019, to serve as the official travel supplier for the Jaguars in the UK.
Fans in the UK will be able to purchase Jaguars NFL-themed holidays through Ocean Holidays, marking the first time that a package of this kind will be made available to UK-based supporters. Trips will include tickets and transfers to Jaguars home games at its EverBank Field stadium.
Ocean Florida will also work with the Jaguars on a range of additional marketing activities, including giving UK holidaymakers the chance to win exclusive Jaguars prizes and experiences in the UK and US.
The Jaguars currently have a multi-year deal in place with the NFL to play games in London, as part of the annual NFL International Series, which sees a number of teams travel to the English capital to play regular-season contests.
As part of the new partnership, Ocean Holidays will also become the official corporate travel partner to the Jaguars through its specialist luxury travel management company, Winged Boots.
Personal travel managers at Winged Boots will help to manage the team’s travel as the journey to and from games at Wembley Stadium, the main London venue for the NFL International Series.
Harry Hastings, co-chief executive of Ocean Holidays, said: “The popularity of the NFL is increasing exponentially in the UK, and this deal will give NFL fans unparalleled access to tickets and experiences both in the UK and US.”
