Top 10 NFL Stadiums

0

All across America NFL fans meet together to watch their favorite team fight for the win against their long time rivals in heated plays on the long 120 yards that make up their playing field. The meeting places where those fields are held are the NFL Stadiums. Whether you are out in the open or are under the protection of a roof, each stadium has a different vibe that cannot be duplicated by another. Out of so many incredible stadiums there are many that provide unique experiences and it was hard to pick just ten but here we have, in our opinion, what we believe to be the top 10 stadiums in the NFL.

 

10. Heinz Field – Pittsburgh Steelers

Heinz Stadium was built along the Ohio River and offers views of the river and city that anyone would find themselves enjoying. The Steelers fans are some of the best fans you will find in the NFL and most of them consist of locals. They love their team and aren’t afraid to show it, often times during home games the fans will flash their Terrible Towels and turn the stadium a bright yellow as they cheer for their team. Ever since 1972, every single Steelers home game has been completely sold out.

9. Gillette Stadium – New England Patriots

Every home game played at Gillette Stadium has sold out since it’s opening and they boast having one of the best home-field winning percentages in all of football due to the boisterous crowd experience. Patriot Place, an entertainment district with shops and restaurants, surrounds the stadium for the ultimate tailgating before games. The stadium regularly hosts other sporting events that include soccer matches, NCAA Lacrosse championships and high school football super bowls.

8. Soldier Field – Chicago Bears

Soldier Field is the oldest stadium in the NFL at 90 years of operation and the third smallest stadium. The stadium was built in 1924 as a memorial to American Soldiers who have died in wars and was designed to model roman architecture. In 2013 the stadium’s interior was renovated in the modern style you see today, the original exterior remaining. The Stadium was once claimed as a National Landmark but due to the renovation was delisted. Soldier Field is the first NFL Stadium to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design status.

7. Arrowhead Stadium – Kansas City Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium is the fifth largest NFL stadium and,in order to maintain the ability to host college and major league soccer games, has had to go through many renovations throughout the years. Despite these renovations the field still has that classic stadium feel. In 2013, in a game between the Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders, the crowd broke the Guinness World Record for the loudest Stadium. The record was broken by the Seahawks, then the Chiefs took hold the record once again in 2014 with a crowd noise at 142.2 decibels.

6. University of Phoenix Stadium – Arizona Cardinals

Few stadiums can claim that their playing field can be used either inside their stadium or outside, but the University of Pheonix Stadium sure can. This stadium has the first retractable natural grass playing surface in the United States allowing the floor of the stadium to be used for other purposes besides NFL games. On top of the technological advancements of the field there is also the shape of the stadium which has been considered an architectural icon for the region as one of the 10 most impressive sport facilities on the globe.

Each Stadium has it’s own perks and fiercely loyal fan base and that made choosing ten of these venues so hard. We wanted to highlight the best but while all thirty-one stadiums are pretty great, we had to narrow it down. We hope you enjoyed seeing the ones we chose and hope you will let us know which stadiums you have been to and which ones are your favorites. Keep a look out of for more top 10’s and the Best of Entertainment in the future!
