Drone Clouds Headed to TIAA Bank Field for Jaguars Games?

Washington Redskins v Jacksonville Jaguars

The Sun at Tiaa Bank Field can quickly begin to bake fans in the stands during Jaguar home games in September and October.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan said he’s seen proposals to use drone-powered "clouds" that may be used over stadiums in Qatar during the 2022 World Cup, carrying shades over stadiums and casting large shadows onto the fans to make the seating areas cooler. Khan seems very interested.

“It's futuristic but it could be very cost-effective only on the days you need it,” Khan said, via First Coast News. “I don’t know how feasible it is, but as an engineer when I saw it I thought boy that would work very well for us.”

The Jags last completed internal stadium project occurred in 2017 with the completion of the US Assure Club and Daily's Place. Two years before the largest scoreboards in the NFL were added along with swimming pools in the north end zones.
