Lincoln Financial Field
March 14, 2012 by staff
Lincoln Financial Field, Lincoln Financial Field is the home stadium of the National Football League’s Philadelphia Eagles. It has a seating capacity of 68,532 (69,144 with Standing Room Only tickets). It is located in South Philadelphia on Pattison Avenue between 11th and 10th streets, also aside I-95 as part of the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. The stadium is nicknamed by the public in shorter form as ‘the Linc.’
The stadium opened on August 3, 2003, after two years of construction that began on May 7, 2001 and replaced Veterans Stadium as the Eagles’ home stadium. While its total capacity barely changed, the new stadium contains double the number of luxury and wheelchair-accessible seats, along with more modern services. The field’s construction included several light emitting diode (LED) video displays from Daktronics in Brookings, South Dakota, as well as more than 624 feet (190 m) of ribbon board technology. Like the Vet, Lincoln Financial Field had a jail inside the stadium, that contained four cells. However, this jail was done away within two years as the level of unruly behavior had dropped considerably from the worst days of the Vet. The Linc also plays host to several soccer games each year, and in the past (2005, 2006) it has played host to the NCAA lacrosse national championship; it will do so again in 2013.
Naming rights were sold in June 2002 to Lincoln Financial Group for a sum of $139.6 million over 21 years. Additional construction funding was raised from the sale of Stadium Builder’s Licenses to Eagles season ticket holders.
