Our focus is to engage and unite Jaguars followers from all walks of life, but particularly those who have grown with the franchise since its inception. Our long-term goal is to cultivate and grow our fanbase—locally, regionally, and nationally— through our mutual passion for team and city. We are a registered 501(c)7 non-profit. All monies or transitions that take place are filtered back into the group to fund events and merchandise.
For all intents and purposes, The Bold City Brigade was born in 2012. It was a fun year. It was exciting tobe a part of something that was in essence a blank canvas. Supporters Groups had been done before. The basic concept behind what we wanted to build was nothing spectacularly innovative or grandiose. But what we wanted to work towards had never really been done within the supporters or fan culture of the NFL. We had a pretty good idea that Generation Jaguar was ripe for something or someone that could come in and organize and harness the youthful passion and energy that had begun to take hold within the fan base. We launched. Many of you took notice. Some joined and others simply watched from afar to try to find out what this crazy new thing was about. We laid a foundation. We were proud of the events we were able to hold and most importantly, we saw that there was interest in what we were trying to do.
If 2012 marked the birth of BCB, then 2013 certainly marked the arrival. What a year last year was, from a draft trip of close to 50 members from 13 different states and numerous different cities to raising over $6,000 for The Boselli Foundation. We threw massive tailgates with our friends The Teal Street Hooligans, the likes of which Duval had never seen. We organized away trips that brought nearly 75 Jags fans to Seattle and over 150 members to TN. But, perhaps most importantly, more and more people began to take notice. This wasn’t just some rag-tag group of fans that wore matching T-shirts. 2013 proved that Jaguars fans wanted something to rally around. Over 1,700 of you wanted to be a part of a giant network that spanned the entire country and was made up of people just like you. It’s pretty safe to say that we, together, you and us, arrived.
Now we stand on the dawn of the new membership year. If the group was given birth in 2012 and we busted onto the scene and announced our arrival in 2013, where does that leave us for 2014? The answer is simple: We’re taking over. Not just from a visibility standpoint, but also the BCB mindset. We are taking that mindset international as we will open up membership to our brothers and sisters abroad for the first time. Together, Jaguars fans nationwide and worldwide, we will keep pushing the limits and the boundaries of what is considered NFL Fandom. But even beyond that, we will continue to push the belief and narrative that Jaguars fans are passionate, knowledgeable, and a force to be reckoned with. With your help we will continue to be vocal defenders of not just our team, but our city as well. We will donate more time, energy, and money to make sure that Jacksonville continues down the path of progress towards reaching its full potential. We will wear our pride on our sleeves. We will grow. We will get better. We will let this mindset that we all share TAKEOVER.
Oh and we’ll drink a lot of beer and look damn good doing it.
Thank you for your support and belief in something that’s greater than any one of us alone. Here's to an even more kick ass 2014.
