Jaguars’ $120 million practice facility includes ‘most advanced urinals’ in pro sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t waste a dime in their brand new $120 million practice facility.

And that included purchasing “the most advanced urinals in all of professional sports.”

Yes, you read that right.

NFL RedZone host Scott Hanson took a tour of the Jags’ new facility on Monday and noted the state-of-the-art urinals, which include a hydration sensor.

It was documented in a video he posted to his Twitter in which Hanson marvels at the sophisticated bathroom amenities. 

“If the light turns green when you go, you’re good,” Hanson said, describing how the sensor works. “If it’s yellow, you need to hydrate some more. If it’s red, you’re probably going to get a notice from the athletic trainers. Maybe get an IV.”

It’s all part of the new Miller Electric Center the Jaguars opened last month next door to TIAA Bank Field. 

The 125,000-square-foot practice facility includes locker rooms, training and medical facilities, office space, a draft room, two full-size grass practice fields and one indoor field, according to the team website

There is also a shaded public viewing area, concession stands and a team store. 

The Jaguars certainly spared no expense on the new facility, which included the bells and whistles inside the bathrooms. 

It’s all part of a plan by Jaguars ownership, which hopes to build what they’ve dubbed the “Stadium of the Future.”

Their plan is to renovate the current stadium to modernize it and “secure NFL football in Northeast Florida well into the future,” the team said in a press release when they announced the plans in June.

The Jaguars, owned by billionaire Shad Khan, are hoping to build off the success they had on the field last year.

Jacksonville went to the postseason and defeated the Los Angeles Chargers in the wild-card round thanks to an epic comeback. 

The organization is looking toward quarterback Trevor Lawrence to take another step in his development, especially with wide receiver Calvin Ridley at his disposal this year.
