KISSIMMEE, Fla. – (June 20, 2023) Experience Kissimmee, the official tourism authority for Osceola County, Florida and the Jacksonville Jaguars announced a multi-year partnership, naming Experience Kissimmee as the official Travel Destination of the team.
The sponsorship will kick off in late June, with Experience Kissimmee as the Presenting Partner of Jaguars Summer Player Tour in the United Kingdom. The tour will feature three Jaguar players engaging in fan events and community youth football programs in London, Liverpool and Belfast. Digital content from the tour will be branded with the Kissimmee destination. In addition to the UK tour, Experience Kissimmee will have visibility at TIAA Bank Field this season with onsite signage and marketing collateral and will create custom branded Jaguars content for the destination.
Coming off a remarkable 2022 winning season and securing the AFC South division championship, the Jaguars are on the hunt for another show-stopping year. The Jaguars have already made headlines this season by making NFL history as the first team to play back-to-back games in London, the number one international market for travel to Kissimmee.
Experience Kissimmee, trademarked as the Vacation Home Capital of the World®, offers an array of fun and excitement for all ages, from outdoor activities to world-class theme parks. The partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars will offer Experience Kissimmee marketing and advertising rights within TIAA Bank Field, as well as online digital assets, creative in-market content, and community event inclusion that showcases Kissimmee as a family-oriented destination.
“We are eagerly anticipating the success that this partnership brings to Experience Kissimmee. Jacksonville holds an important drive and overnight market for us, and we are excited to increase our presence in the North Florida territory,” said DT Minich, President/CEO of Experience Kissimmee. “Not only will this collaboration boost domestic awareness, but it will also enhance our visibility among visitors from the UK during the London Games.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Experience Kissimmee to our family of Jaguars partners,” said Scott Massey, senior vice president of corporate partnerships. “Our neighbors to the south share our same interest in connecting with residents in the UK and we hope our upcoming opportunities to collaborate will generate unique content our fans will enjoy.”
Furthermore, Experience Kissimmee is also the Presenting Partner of the Jaguars Girls Flag Football PreSeason Classic that brings more than 650 female athletes to TIAA Bank Field. The 2023 edition saw the largest participation to date and included the franchise’s inaugural Girls Flag Media Day.
“Experience Kissimmee takes pride in supporting the growth and development of female athletes and celebrates the increased visibility of their game,” said Jessica Beers, Executive Director of Kissimmee Sports Commission. “Here in Kissimmee, we work with many flag football events rights holders that include female athletes. Our active involvement in the game’s development is important as we strive to highlight the beautiful sports venues that exist in Kissimmee.”
