JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

EverBank Field is getting tough on smoking in all its forms. 

New guidelines bans smoking in almost all the stadium, from the all stairs and walkways.  That includes the concourses, Touchdown Clubs, the Bud Light Party Zone, North End Zone Deck, Sky Patio and restrooms.

Smoking -- even electronic cigarettes -- will only be allowed on the Plaza level.

News4Jax talked to one e-cigarette smoker who calls the new stadium policy extreme.

"I would understand not allowing it in the seats, but to take an area that is outside and make a fan either use an elevator or a ramp, which is gonna be highly crowded, to get a cigarette at a venue where they sell alcohol, I think is going a little far," said Richard Waters.

Fans who violate the smoking rules risk being kicked out of the stadium.
