Everybody get ready. Football season is approaching and you need to know what stadiums are best to go. From the home of the 12th man, to billion dollar architectural masterpieces, here are the most amazing NFL Stadiums
5. Heinz Field, Steelers
Another stadium that’s left open to the elements is Heinz Field, located in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The stadium opened in 2001 after they demolished three rivers stadium costing 397.6 million dollars adjusted for inflation. Being located in steel city, the designers of that project kept that in mind and 12,000 tons of steel to construct. The first football game took place in front of a sold out crowd during their season opener. Unlike many on these list besides denver, they actually use an old fashioned grass playing surface. Heinz Field has also upgraded their food menu this year introducing the Smallman St Sandwich. It included banana peppers, shaved hot sausage, fried eggplant and topped off with some marinara and mozzarella cheese!
4. Arrowhead Stadium
Located in Kansas City, Missouri this would also be a great place to get some bbq while you watch the game! Home to the kansas city chiefs and the new star player Mahomes, Arrowhead stadium ranked high on polls for favorite stadiums across the US. People in Kansas City don’t have a ton of things to do besides concern themselves with football which makes this an electrifying home stadium to play at. The Chiefs often have a decent home field advantage and won’t lose here too often. Despite that they haven’t brought home a Superbowl trophy since 1970 but maybe they’re due for one.
3. Centurylink Field, Seattle Seahawks
Also known for being home to the 12th man, Centurylink Field has essentially reached landmark status in the city of Seattle. It opened 17 years ago in July of 2002 and cost roughly 600 million dollars adjusted for inflation. It’s designed to hold 68 thousand people but can be expandable to 72 thousand if needed. The record attendance here was during a matchup vs the Kansas City Chiefs in December of 2018. It’s lacking a retractable roof which leaves it open to the elements and the Seattle rain. It’s earned a reputation for being one of stadiums in the world with the seating decks and partial roof allowing for noise to be amplified.
2. Lambeau Field, Green Bay Packers
This stadium rightfully earns its place on our list for being one of the more historic football stadiums. It’s by far the oldest one on this list, being constructed in 1956 and it’s doubtful that it will ever be demolished. Located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, it’s not in a bustling metropolis like so many other stadiums are. Adjusted for inflation and renovations, it’s worth about 402 million dollars in today’s cash. In winter time, it’s more than likely that the forecast will have some snow in it! Many epic historic games have taken place here and it’s almost like a museum where football games are held. Don’t forget to wear your cheese head!
Honorable mention goes the Raiders stadium located in Las Vegas that’s currently being built and expected to be open in 2020.
