Sports In the River City

Our Jags. Are they perfect? No. But we love our cats anyway and “there’s always next year!” But our home football team and their dominant downtown stadium aren’t the only game in town. If you are a sports fan who is new in town, or contemplating a move to our wonderful city, read on to learn more about team sports in Jacksonville.

Let’s talk basketball. Did you know that the Jacksonville 95ers are one of the newest pro teams of The Basketball League (TBL) for the 2024 season? Yahoo Sports reports that the 95ers are an NBA official minor league that prepares players, coaches, officials, and others for the NBA (you saw them here first!) Check out their schedule here and let’s show up to the Swisher Gym at JU for a game!


Baseball fan? We’ve got you covered! The Jumbo Shrimp are Jax’ team! Our Shrimp are a minor league baseball team in the International League AND the triple-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins. Their stadium is beautiful, and the games are full of fun. (and who doesn’t want a jersey with a grimacing crustacean on it?)


If you like your sports on ice, check out our NHL affiliate minor league hockey team, The Jacksonville Icemen! The ice guys are the NHL affiliate for the Buffalo Sabres as of 2023. Their games are exciting!


Yes – we play soccer here too! The Armada football club is on fire and will join MLS NEXT Pro in 2025 as an independent club. A new stadium and lots more excitement is heading our way!


And did we mention golf? If not, we will! Look forward to more about the TPC coming soon in our blog. Jax IS golf and we have a lot to say on this subject.


But that’s not all, sports fans. In Jax, you can compete, follow, and love sports of all kinds including:


·       Surfing

·       Volleyball (beach and otherwise)

·       Fishing

·       Running

·       Tennis

·       Dragon boating

·       Pickleball

·       And more!


Sports fans – you’ve found home base. And… if we can go back to the Jaguars for a moment, next year will be our year. So, keep practicing your DUUUVAL during the off-season.
