Eagles plan $125M stadium project
PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles are planning to add 1,600 seats and two high-definition video boards as part of a $125 million stadium revitalization project to be completed before the 2014 season.
Lincoln Financial Field is undergoing a face-lift just 10 years after it opened in 2003.
"We have had discussions with season ticketholders over the past couple of seasons to find out what was important to them. We listened and developed a plan of action," Eagles president Don Smolenski said. "Our main goal when we began this project was to dramatically enhance the game-day experience for our fans."
Other upgrades include murals honoring the franchise's greatest players, Wi-Fi installation and two bridges and an escalator to provide faster access for fans.
