Philadelphia Eagles Stadium / Lincoln Financial Field
Lincoln Financial Field is actually the home of the Philadelphia Eagles. For fans of this popular NFL team, a visit to the city of Brotherly Love is never complete without making an all important stop at the Philadelphia Eagles Stadium. Shall we talk about the things that you can do and see there? Let’s hope football will be played here in 2011. Philadelphia Eagles game tickets will be available to purchase here.
Let’s talk food. Of course, no visit to the Eagle’s stadium would be complete without some ballpark food sampling. Classics such as water ice, cheesesteaks, soft pretzels and hoagies are just common fare round these parts. However, if you are a bit more health conscious and want something that wont add a few pounds to your frame then you’d be happy to know that the place also offers excellent veggie burgers and veggie hotdogs. Other good ole ballpark fares include turkey legs and some of the best BBQ this side of the city.
Locals also highly recommend a visit to Chickie’s & Petes in order to sample their Crab Fries which gets people coming back for more each and every time. The Philadelphia Eagles Stadium has got quite the beer selection as well and none of which go over $8 which is certainly a good price for people looking for a quick drink before, during and after the games. Needless to say, whether you’re a fan, a foodie or both, you’ll have a blast sampling the food at Lincoln Financial Field.
Now let’s talk crowd. Simply put, if you are from a visiting team, you’ll have a hard time concentrating on the game at Lincoln Financial Field what with all the noise and jeers from die-hard Eagles fans. As a matter of fact, to further amplify this effect, the stadium is built with special metal flaps which reflect crowd noise onto the field. Deafening is an understatement when it comes to describing the ruckus that goes on here during football games played on Sunday’s.
After the game’s over and you’ve sampled every food option available at the Philadelphia Eagles Stadium then it’s about time you tried some other forms of entertainment. Located quite near the stadium is PLAY2 which has amusement pod entertainment centers where you’ll be able to get in some Wii, PS3 or Xbox 360 time. Not your type of thing? Well, why not chill by the bar and listen to some great tunes courtesy of the in house DJ. Its non-stop entertainment around here and it would be your loss if you do not stop in for the enjoyable atmosphere.
Since the first work started on May 7, 2001, Lincoln Financial Field has become a destination for both football fans and concert goers alike. The Philadelphia Eagles hosted the New England Patriots on August 22, 2003 to mark the 1st football game played there. Even though it was a pre-season game, the air was electric. Less than three weeks later the first regular season game was played on September 8, 2003. This was a Monday Night game, for a national audience to view, between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles. The only bad thing that night was that the Bucs won 17-0.
The new Philadelphia Eagles stadium has a seating capacity of 67,594, about 2,000 more than the old Veterans Stadium. Lincoln Financial Field takes up 15 acres of real estate and has 22,000 parking spaces for vehicles at the sports complex.
