What sports teams are in Jacksonville?

Jacksonville is one of the largest metro areas in the United States, and like all big cities in America, is home to several professional sports teams. If you have just purchased one of the homes for sale in Jacksonville, which sports teams should you root for and why?

The underdog

The Jacksonville Jaguars or "Jags" play in the AFC South division of the National Football League, and have one of the best running backs in the league in Maurice Jones-Drew. The addition of quarterback Chad Henne should make this team a competitor in the division next year, and if you are a fan of rooting for the underdog, consider buying a teal, black and gold football jersey.

The super underdog

While the Jaguars are technically the only Jacksonville team in one of the "big four" U.S. sports leagues, there are still plenty of other professional teams to choose from, and tickets to these games often are cheaper and easier to obtain. The Jacksonville Axemen play in the USA Rugby League, for example, and the Bullies play in the North American Lacrosse League.

Any of these teams are a great choice for sports fans moving to the greater Jacksonville area.
