Today, the Tennessee Titans play
in one of the NFL’s best stadiums. However, the team did
not always play in the best stadiums prior to moving into LP Field. After 30 years of playing in Houston, TX at the Astrodome,
the team, then known as the Houston Oilers, began wanting a
new football only stadium in the mid 1990’s. After numerous
attempts to get a stadium failed, the team decided to move to
Nashville, TN. There was one problem though, Nashville did not
have a stadium ready for the team by the time they moved in
1996. While a new stadium was being constructed in Nashville,
the Titans played at the Liberty Bowl and Vanderbilt Stadium.
On September 12, 1999, the Tennessee Titans moved into their new stadium. The stadium was originally
known as Adelphia Coliseum after Adelphia Communications paid
$30 million for the naming rights for 15 years. However, prior
to the start of the 2002 NFL season, the naming rights were
dropped and the stadium is now known as LP Field. The
stadium consists of three levels of 67,000 blue and red seats.
The lower grandstand circles the entire gridiron.
Two other decks of seating are located
on both sides of the field. Two scoreboard/video-boards are
located behind the seating area past the endzones. LP Field
contains 144 luxury suites, and 9,600 club seats (which make
up the second tier of the grandstand). LP Field is also
the home of the Tennessee State Tigers and hosts the Music
City Bowl. Fans attending games at LP Field receive excellent
views of the nearby Nashville skyline and the Cumberland River.
