Local NFL Teams Partner with Florida Education

~ Bucs, Jags and Dolphins to offer specially priced tickets for all public school and district personnel ~

TALLAHASSEE - The start of the new school year also means it's time for football, and the Florida Department of Education (DOE) is proud to continue its partnership with all three Florida National Football League (NFL) teams to offer specially-priced tickets for public school and district personnel (pre-kindergarten - 12th grade) across the state. Through this unique partnership, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are offering discounted single-game tickets for purchase for any public education employee.

"We continue to look for ways to show our gratitude to educators throughout the state and are thrilled to work with our local NFL teams to offer support for public education," said DOE Teacher Liaison Kelly Seay. "Florida's teachers work tremendously hard to encourage a high standard of excellence for their students and we hope they are able to take advantage of these discounted tickets to catch a game or two this year."

For some available games, eligible employees will see as much as 50 percent in savings compared to regular ticket prices. Employees may contact the NFL team representatives directly if interested in purchasing single game tickets for the upcoming football season or visit the Just for Teachers website at www.fldoe.org/justforteachers for the necessary forms.
