Jaguars vs. Bengals ‘MNF’ Game Features Spectacular Pregame Light Show

Video: Eagles fans created a stunning pre-game light show at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Thursday, Sept. 14.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to host a phenomenal in-stadium light show before their next two home games, and they require your assistance to make it happen – specifically, your cell phone. 

For the Monday game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the team has organized a “Lock it Down, Light it Up” pregame show. They are urging fans attending the game to download the Jaguars app onto their phones and activate a special feature that will grant access to the phones’ microphones and camera. An ultrasonic tone will be emitted to activate the phones, spotlighting a four- to five-minute light show in the EverBank Stadium seating bowl. 

How many phones are we talking about? 

There are still limited tickets available for the game, but in case of a sell-out crowd of 68,282 people, the potential number of participating phones would create a mesmerizing light display.

What time does the light show start? 

Fans attending the Monday game are requested to be in their seats with the app downloaded and activated by 7:45 p.m. The show is scheduled to commence at 8:04 p.m., just before the 8:15 p.m. kickoff.

Will the light show be televised? 

That will be determined by ESPN, the network covering the game. The team’s director of business communications, Lyndsay Rossman, mentioned that similar technology has been utilized in other NFL stadiums and has appeared in pregame broadcasts.

Will it be set to holiday music? 

No, the light show will be synchronized to a custom symphonic soundtrack.

Will the light show do “The Wave” and other patterns?

Rossman clarified that the program will illuminate all participating phones simultaneously and cannot activate phones section by section.

How does the app know what seat I am in? 

It doesn’t. The system sends a tone to every phone in the seating bowl, utilizing the stadium’s sound system. Whether in the correct seat or not, the phones will still work, but fans might have to answer to the ushers.

Will the light show work in the parking lot or restroom?

No, the light show only works in phones located within the main seating bowl of the stadium after activating the app; it won’t work in the parking lot, at home, in the restrooms, or the stadium concourses.

Is there a charge to participate? 

Downloading the app is free, but participation requires a game ticket.

What happens if I go to the game and don’t download the app? 

Nothing. The program only operates if the app is downloaded and activated.

Will advertising appear on my phone? 

Rossman revealed that the light show will incorporate the phones’ microphones and flashlights for the visuals, with Jaguars’ content displayed on the phone screen during the show. 

Will the light show drain my phone’s battery? 

Yes, but minimally. The program will consume an amount of power equivalent to using the flashlight while watching a video. Charging stations are available near gates 1 and 4, in the Bud Light Party Zone, and on the fan deck.

What if I get a call during the light show?

Although the phone will still function as usual, an incoming call might not be top priority in the middle of an electrifying stadium atmosphere, with kick-off imminent.

Will the program continue to use my phone’s microphone and flash after the light show is concluded? 

Rossman assured that the app only remains active while the ultrasonic tone is being broadcast, redirecting fans to the Jaguars website once it concludes. Fans can manually revoke access or delete the app from their phones if privacy is a concern.

Is the light show dangerous in any way? 

The Jaguars’ website cautions that “persons susceptible to photosensitive seizures or light sensitivities should avoid exposure to the flashing light display” during pre-game and halftime. 

CUE Audio, the company behind the app, affirms that the audio tones used are proven safe: “CUE Audio is safe for babies; it’s also safe for animals. The frequencies are entirely natural; we simply apply a pattern to them, which the phone interprets as a message.”

What about the Baltimore game? 

For the Jaguars’ upcoming home night game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Dec. 17, a similar pre-game light show is planned. However, filters will be issued to fans that will turn the lights from white to teal.
