Rows: 20 Mile High Stadium has remained one of the largest venues in the NFL despite several name changes. The Broncos' stadium has three primary seating levels, each with at least 20 rows of seats. The lowest level is known as "Bronco Country" and it includes fan-friendly features such as beer gardens, food trucks, and merchandise shops. The middle level is called the "Locker Room," which includes the team's locker room and offices.
The top level is called "Club Level." It contains the highest-priced tickets, along with a VIP area where fans can eat and drink. Club Level seats range in price from $100 to $125,000 per season; those are exclusive of parking fees which can run $60-$70 per game. Outfield bleachers on the south side of the field have an additional capacity of about 14,000.
In addition to its regular season games, Mile High Stadium is also used for the NFL's annual championship series, the Super Bowl. The biggest challenge for designers was building a large enough venue that met the needs of multiple sports teams (A Denver baseball team formerly played in Denver until 1969).
Mile High Stadium was built in 1964 by Brutalist architects who wanted to create an intimidating environment for opponents.
Empower Field at Mile High has a capacity of 76,125 people.
Until an agreement with Empower Retirement was completed, it was known as Broncos Stadium at Mile High in 2018 and the start of the 2019 season. Mile High's Empower Field was built in 2019. The stadium has a capacity of 76,125 people. There are 132 executive suites in total.
The MetLife Stadium AT Stadium has the biggest peak capacity of any NFL stadium, with over 100,000 people, whereas MetLife Stadium has the highest advertised seating capacity of 82,500. Soldier Field, with a capacity of 61,500, is the smallest stadium. It opened in 1924 and has been called "the grand old palace" by President Lyndon B. Johnson.
New England Patriots fans say they love their stadium, Gillette Stadium, but it has only about 54,000 seats with another 10,000 general admission tickets sold each game. The minimum capacity for NFL stadiums is 32,763 but only one stadium (Lincoln Financial Field) has a maximum capacity of more than 20,000. The other 31 stadiums have maximum capacities between 16,000 and 19,999.
Cleveland Browns fans call Cleveland Browns Stadium "Dollar Dog Park", because that's all you can get for $1.00 at games time when the price of a ticket comes down to that level. But even so, the park is not for those who want to see a football game, but rather go to enjoy the day out in Ohio weather. There are no bandboxes or cozy corners here, just 500 level seats and a 50-yard long wall of glass looking out on to I-77.
Dallas Cowboys fans refer to Jerry World as "America's Team Stadium".
The stadium is also known as "Jerry World" after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who envisioned it as a major entertainment destination. The stadium has a seating capacity of 80,000, making it the fourth largest stadium in the NFL. The stadium has a standing-room capacity of 105,000 people.
It was built at a cost of $250 million (20% of which came from public funds). It is the most expensive sports facility ever constructed at the time it was completed. The stadium is located on 1.4 miles2 of land and its construction required removing over 100,000 tons of rock and soil.
Dallas Stadium opened on August 30, 2009, with a 27-24 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in an NFC Divisional playoff game. The opening ceremony included appearances by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
The stadium is owned by the city of Dallas but operated by IMG Sports & Entertainment. It is located about 20 minutes south of downtown Dallas, near the town of Irving. The stadium is accessible from Interstate 635 and U.S. Highway 75.
Dallas Stadium replaced Texas Stadium as the home of the Cowboys. Texas Stadium had been the site of many memorable moments in Cowboys history, including two Super Bowl victories played before massive crowds. Its record attendance of 104,597 people still stands today.
The stadium is also known as "Jerry World" after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who initially intended it to be a big entertainment arena.
It's been reported that up to one million people visit the stadium each year. However, this estimate is based on weekday games against weak opposition, so it may be an exaggeration. A more accurate figure is between 450,000 and 500,000 fans per game, which would make it the third most popular sports venue in the country behind only FedExField (which is home to the Washington Redskins) and Soldier Field (home to the Chicago Bears).
There are several reasons why the number of visitors is lower than expected. First, not all tickets are sold in advance. It's common practice for major sporting events to sell out before or during play, but some games have remained fairly popular even after their prices went up. For example, two recent games against the New York Giants sold out within an hour of going on sale. This suggests that the stadium was probably never fully occupied even when it was used for concerts.
Another factor is that some people might choose not to attend games if they are being played late into the night or on Sunday afternoons.
By adding risers and ganged, movable "X-frame" folding chairs, the stadium's seating capacity may be increased by 8,800 for "mega-events" such as college bowls, NFL Super Bowls, the NFC Championship Game, and the Final Four. For regular-season games, about 50 percent of the stadium must be empty for it to be considered a sellout.
The maximum number of rows of spectator seating is 42. The lower level has no flooring, only concrete steps, so access for players is limited. The upper deck is covered with a roof that opens in warm weather or when there is rain expected. There are also club seats, which are luxury boxes that can be purchased for use in various parts of the stadium.
State Farm Stadium was built at a cost of $140 million. It is located on about 20 acres of land within walking distance of several popular restaurants and bars in downtown Chicago.
The stadium is owned by the city of Chicago, but is operated by an independent nonprofit corporation called the Sports Authority. Its board of directors includes two members from each team who play in the stadium and three others who are selected by their peers.
Teams have the right to move their games if State Farm Stadium isn't yet full, but not vice versa.
