March 14th, 2024 · Leave a Comment

The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp recently announced Project NEXT, the club’s plan for the $31.8 million publicly-funded renovation plan to 121 Financial Ballpark.

Project NEXT is the first major renovation to 121 Financial Ballpark since its opening in 2003. While aiming to meet MLB requirements, Project NEXT also aims to reinvent the Crustacean Nation fan experience.

In 2024, fans will get to experience the beginning phases of Project NEXT at 121 Financial Ballpark: a brand-new videoboard nearly 20 percent larger in size, new ribbon boards and new concourse fans.

The long-term vision of Project NEXT also includes the creation of an enhanced club space behind home plate, a brand-new front porch and center field plaza to welcome fans like never before. In right field, Project NEXT plans a multi-level building making the Jumbo Shrimp VyStar Credit Union Souvenir Store accessible on the street level, and on the concourse level, an incredible space that will be downtown Jacksonville’s newest spot for banquets and meetings.

The Jumbo Shrimp are incredibly honored and proud to be working with the Canopy Team and Janet Marie Smith. Her impressive credentials include design work of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Fenway Park renovations and many others.

“The planned improvements to 121 Financial Ballpark will build upon a successful tradition of accessible entertainment for families in Jacksonville,” said Smith. “By providing new spaces for fans, different food and beverage options, and opportunities to watch the game in exciting and innovative ways, the Jumbo Shrimp and the City of Jacksonville are ensuring a long and positive future for baseball in the Bold City.”
