Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles is the newest NFL stadium. In the late 1990’s the Eagles proposed that a new football only facility be built adjacent to their current home Veterans Stadium. The Eagles and the Philadelphia Phillies (MLB) who also shared Veterans Stadium were tired of playing at the multipurpose facility. For many years the stadium had been considered the worst venue in the league. After financing packages were completed in 2000, construction began in April of 2001. In June 2002, Lincoln Financial Group, a financial services firm that has its headquarters in downtown Philadelphia, agreed to pay $139.6 million for the naming rights.

The Eagles played there first game at Lincoln Financial Field against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 8, 2003. The 66,000 seat stadium is located at 11th Street and Pattison Ave. The stadium looks similar to other NFL stadiums that have been completed in past years. Nearly two-thirds of the seats are located on the sidelines, and are 60 feet from the field. Two three tier grandstands of seats are located on both sides of the gridiron. Two tier sections of seats are located beyond the endzones. The stadium features three open plaza corners for views of the city and into the stadium. The exterior of the stadium has a pair of wing-like coverings over the upper deck. These wings form some protection from the elements for some fans and serve to focus stadium noise back towards the field, enhancing the game experience. Two 27ft. by 96ft. video boards are located between the lower and upper decks in the endzones. A number of amenities are at Lincoln Financial Field including 117 luxury suites, 9,000 club seats, a 100,00 square foot fan oriented plaza, and an Eagles team store. The Eagles hope to have many successful years at their new home.
